Research Project: Evaluation of Cp Cultivars for Yield Parameters and Disease Susceptibility in Panama

Location: Sugarcane Production Research

2013 Annual Report


1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
Develop 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.


3.Progress Report:

This research relates to inhouse objective 2: Develop better agronomic practices for the Florida sugarcane industry.

Fifty CP-clones were shipped to AZUCARERA NACIONAL, S. A., in Panama for yield and disease evaluation.
