Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In the Sugarcane Research Unit’s sugarcane variety program, promising experimental varieties are assigned permanent “HoCP” or “Ho” numbers three years after selection in the seedling stage. These varieties are then planted in replicated yield trials at USDA's Ardoyne Farm in Schriever and at the LSU AgCenter’s Iberia Research Station in Jeanerette and Sugar Research Station in St. Gabriel. Yield and juice quality results are reported for the 2015 trials.
