Project Number: 6052-21000-018-005-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2019
End Date: Feb 29, 2024

Develop and evaluate sugarcane clones with high-yielding and disease-resistance potential for sugar production.

Sugarcane seedlings will be produced from high-yielding and 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.
