Research Project: Evaluation of Canal Point (Cp) Cultivars for Yield Parameters and Disease Susceptibility in El Salvador

Location: Sugarcane Production Research

Project Number: 6625-21000-005-07
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2017

Objective:
Develop Canal Point (CP) sugarcane clones with high-yielding disease-resistance potential for evaluation of sugar production.

Approach:
Sugarcane seedlings will be produced from high-yielding disease-resistant parental clones with wide adaptation. Superior clones with high vigor, growth and freedom from diseases will be selected and established in yield trials to identify superior clones.
