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.
Fifty CP-clones were shipped to Azucarera Nacional, S. A., in Panama, for yield and disease evaluation. CP-clones imported to Panama in 2011 germinated and are in quarantine.
