Evaluation and control of pests, diseases and persistence of herbicides in sugarcane agroecosystems with mechanized harvesting system, without burning

Abstract

The cultivation of sugarcane has undergone profound changes within the technological and social ambits in this decade, trying to adapt to the production demands of high productivity, competitiveness and respect for the environment. In this way, the State Legal Decree 42.056/9, which prohibits the removal of sugarcane straw by burning, is in harmony with the technological anxieties for the sustainable increase in the production of sugarcane in the State of São Paulo. Thus the Experimental Center of the Biological Institute, with its researchers, has been developing, throughout its seventy years in existence, research activities along the line of the protection of plants, including sugarcane, together with the Luiz de Queiroz Agricultural High School, in the Entomology Sector, and the Federal University of São Carlos, in the Center for Agrarian Sciences, this being therefore an area of research interest of the technicians related to the body of this project. The principal objective is to study and develop techniques for the control of pests, diseases and the persistence of herbicides in the areas of mechanically harvested sugarcane in the State of São Paulo, in an economic manner and which protects the environment, concentrating principally on the pest of the sugarcane spittlebug, Migdoli. ssp., the diseases (smut and rust) and the persistence of herbicides in the soil.
