Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Since 2011, over 175 “Ho” or “HoCP” varieties from the USDA sugarcane variety development program have been introduced to the Texas sugarcane industry for further increase and testing. The best of these varieties are eventually planted in outfield tests at different locations, with the ultimate goal of releasing commercial varieties for use in Texas.
