Chapter synopsis: Plant crop establishment provides an opportunity to ensure that best management practices (BMPs) are identified and implemented or continued on-farm. If it is not done well, the ensuing crop could be negatively affected. This chapter focusses on a philosophy of BMP associated with sugarcane farming systems and explores how this enables good decision-making when crop establishment practices and activities are being considered and implemented by a grower. The chapter addresses the need for best practice crop establishment planning for sugarcane crop cycles, implementation of crop establishment plans, residue management, rectification and soil amelioration activities, fallow and sugarcane planting strategies and sugarcane cultivation practices and weed control.
