Resumen

A new sugar cane fertilization method based on the principles of sustainable land management is suggested. Accordingly, a study was conducted at the Mid-Eastern Sugar Cane Local Research Station (ETICA) in the province of Camagüey, Cuba. The single or combined effects of FitoMas- E and Enerplant phytostimulants, using 50% of the mineral fertilizer dose recommended by the Service of Fertilizer Recommendations and Amendments (SERFE) for this particular type of soil for variables crop yields and industrial yields. The stumps used for evaluation belonged to a third generation. The results demonstrated that the mixture of Enerplant and FitoMas-E with 50% of the dose for mineral fertilizers had a positive effect on the crop and industrial yields evaluated for sugar cane. Moreover, the economic assessment showed that the three treatments that applied the phytostimulants, either separately or together, combined with 50% of the dose recommended by SERFE, were more productive than the application of the whole dose. These criteria should be considered due to the environmental benefits observed in this study.
