Research Project: Development of Cp Sugarcane Cultivars for Florida

Location: Sugarcane Production Research

Project Number: 6030-21000-005-15
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2016

Objective:
The development of new disease-resistant high-yielding sugarcane cultivars specifically adapted for Florida.

Approach:
Cross superior sugarcane to produce "true-seed", germinate in greenhouse and transplant individual seedlings (clones) to field. Evaluate and select superior high-yielding disease-resistant sugarcane clones in multi-year trials in a tri-party cooperative program on ARS and on grower farm locations and to vegetatively increase seedcane of the seeded clones.
