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

Location: Sugarcane Production Research

2013 Annual Report


1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
To develop sugarcane clones with high-yielding disease-resistance potential and evaluation for 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 Ingenio Monte Rosa, S. A., in Nicaragua for yield and disease evaluation. CP-clones imported to Nicaragua in 2012 germinated and are in quarantine. CP 06-2400 shows commercial potential in trials at Monte Rosa in Nicaragua.
