Billet Planting in Louisiana
Maximizing the Chances of Success with Billet Planting
Around the world, sugarcane is usually planted as stalk sections or “billets.” In Louisiana, whole stalks have traditionally been planted due to stalk rots and environmental stress. Despite the greater potential for stand problems, there are times when farmers need to plant billets. Therefore, practices have been identified that will maximize the chances of success with billet planting in Louisiana.

Odds are low for grain sorghum disease, but still scout
While disease can wreak havoc on soybean or cotton crops, grain sorghum may be less likely to suffer from a disease outbreak. Trey Price, a plant pathologist at the Macon Ridge Research Station in Winnsboro, said the odds are low that a grower will have to make a fungicide application for disease control in grain sorghum most years.
