      However, sugarcane breeders invest great effort to obtain and preserve germinability of seed produced in their breeding programs. Preliminary studies have shown that the optimal temperature for seed germination is 36° by: Sugarcane variety tests in Florida, harvest season.

Maturity Curves and Harvest Schedule Recommendations for CP Sugarcane Varieties; Performance of CP Sugarcane Cultivars Grown in Different Locations in Florida; Performance of Foreign Sugarcane Germplasm on Florida Sandlands; Sucrose Accumulation Maturity Curves for CP ; Sucrose Accumulation Maturity Curves for CP ; Sucrose Accumulation Maturity Curves for CP ; Sucrose Accumulation Maturity Curves.

Although most sugarcane growers in Florida plant a diverse selection of newer varieties, a lack of maturity curves makes it difficult to make informed harvest scheduling decisions. This fact sheet summarizes sucrose accumulation characteristics among some of the commercial CP varieties in Florida, Texas, and/or Central American countries to.

Sugarcane New varieties developed in the breeding program at Florida and Louisiana are evaluated for yield, quality, and disease and cold resistance in cooperation with Agricultural Experiment Stations in Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, the American Sugar Cane League, and the Cairo Cane Growers League.

SPREEN* & GERALD KIDDERt * Food and Resource Economics Department, Cited by:   Fifteen sugarcane varieties of early and mid late maturity group were taken to study variability for quantitative, biochemical and juice quality characters Quantitative characters like germination percentage, number of shoots, leaf area index in June,cane height, number of millable canes, single cane weight and cane yield recorded moderate to high coefficient of variation, Cited by: 6.

Selection standards of 15 Pol % cane, 85 % purity and % CCS at maturity allowed the selection of 12 superior varieties including Q77N, Q, Q, BT, Cassius, Cadmus; PS57, PS Three sugarcane clones viz., NI, NIA and BL4 were tested for induced somatic mutation using irradiation doses of 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40Gy.

Various studies have been carried out worldwide to quantify yield loss due to sugarcane smut. Whittle () reported maximum potential loss of % to % in inoculated and healthy plots.

James () found significant losses in yields of healthy and smutted canes. Introduction. Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) plant is cultivated for 70% of the world’s sugar r, several sugarcane varieties are grown for fresh juice consumption.

Among the varieties grown in Malaysia, ‘Tebu telur’, a greenish-yellow variety, is the most popular for its softer, less-fibrous stalk and production of high juice yield with distinct flavour.

Chemical ripeners such as Ethephon, Glyphosate analogues, Fusilade Super, Gallant Super are being used in large scale sugarcane plantations.

The gains in sucrose content in sugarcane have been reported from units, depending upon variety-weather-ripener Cited by: 4. In sugarcane, sugar accumulation is not uniform throughout the crop season and varieties show variation in the pattern of present study was conducted to understand the pattern of sugar accumulation in different genotypes identified.

Preliminary results were presented at a grower workshop in April and the information gained in this study will be used to update University of Florida nitrogen recommendations for sugarcane.

Field work was completed for the organic materials study on minerals soils and results from this study were presented at an international workshop (ISSCT.

Sugarcane is Florida's leading agronomic row crop in acreage and economic value. New varieties need to be developed to improve yield and to meet changing conditions such as wetter and. Viability of a given sugar sector depends on the yield of sugar and age of harvesting affects sugar yield the return the most.

Therefore, an experiment was conducted at Metahara Sugar Estate plantation to determine the effect of different harvesting ages (12,14 and 16 months after planting) on 12 sugarcane varieties (C, C, C, C, C, C, B, B, SP70 Cited by: 1.

An Overview of Florida Sugarcane 1 L.E. Baucum, R.W. Rice, and T.J. Schueneman2 Sugarcane is a crop that can be grown throughout Florida.

In most areas of the state it is grown only as a hobby crop for syrup production or as a source of “chewing cane”.

Sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) is an indigenous crop that originates from New Guinea (southeast Asia) and is grown in all tropical and subtropical regions of the world, on both sides of the equator (Lisboa et al., ).As a C4 plant, sugarcane is very efficient in converting solar radiation into biomass and also has the unique ability within the Poaceae family to accumulate up to 60% of Cited by: In a preliminary experiment, the energy production in terms of calorific value of individual plant parts (leaf, leaf sheath and stem) was assessed at different growth phases of sugarcane (formative, grand growth and maturity) in selected sugarcane varieties.
