Location: Sugarcane Field Station
Project Number: 6030-21000-005-17-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 1, 2013
End Date: Aug 31, 2018
Develop sugarcane clones with high sucrose-yielding, disease-resistance potential for evaluation of sugar production.
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.
