Research Project: Evaluation of CP Cultivars for Yield Parameters and Disease Susceptibility in Guatemala

Location: Sugarcane Field Station

Project Number: 6030-21000-005-12-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Dec 1, 2011
End Date: Nov 30, 2016

Objective:
Develop sugarcane clones with high sucrose-yielding disease-resistance potential for evaluation of 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 sucrose producing clones.
