Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In the USDA Sugarcane Research Unit’s sugarcane variety program, promising experimental varieties are assigned permanent numbers three years after selection in the seedling stage. These varieties are 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. Varieties with yields equal or higher than the control varieties and not susceptible to diseases are advanced for further testing.
