1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
Develop Canal Point (CP) sugarcane clones with high-yielding disease-resistance potential for evaluation of sugar production.
1b.Approach (from AD-416):
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.
This research relates to inhouse objective 2: Develop better agronomic practices for the Florida sugarcane industry.
CP-clones are imported every other year by El Salvador and clones imported in 2012 germinated and are in quarantine.
