Research Project: Evaluation of Sugarcane Cultivars for Yield Perimeters and Disease Susceptibility in Texas

Location: Sugarcane Production Research

Project Number: 6625-21000-005-14
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Oct 01, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2016

Objective:
Develop and evaluate sugarcane clones with high sucrose-yielding disease-resistance potential for sugar production.

Approach:
Sugarcane seedlings will be produced from high sucrose-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.
