  • Generation of a 345K sugarcane SNP chip 

    Aitken, KS; Farmer, A; Berkman, P; Muller, C; Wei, X; Demano, E; Jackson, PA; Magwire, M; Dietrich, B; Kota, R (2016)
    DNA markers can enhance rates of genetic gain in breeding programs and are currently being applied in many animal and crop species. The very large sugarcane genome means that many current 'best bet' markers associated with ...
  • Genetic adjustment to changing climates: sugarcane 

    Inman-Bamber, G; Jackson, P; Bourgault, M (2011)
    Climate change could affect sugarcane production directly through biophysical processes and indirectly as governments start implementing energy and environmental policies. Life cycle analyses indicate that sugarcane offers ...
  • Genetic correlations between flowering propensity and cane yield and CCS and implications for sugarcane breeding programs 

    Jackson, P; Wei, X; Atkin, F (2012)
    Flowering has been selected against in some breeding programs because of perceived negative impacts on yield and commercial value. However, there are few if any reports on genetic correlations between flowering and cane ...
  • Genotype X environment interaction and selection of sugarcane families for the Burdekin River irrigation area : Final Report SRDC Project BS57S 

    McRae, TA; Jackson, PA (1995)
    The arable lands being developed for sugarcane production in the Burdekin River Irrigation Area (BRIA) are on markedly different soil types and, as a consequence, may present environmental challenges different to those ...
  • Getting the most crop per drop 

    Pfeffer, B (2015)
    New research is looking at ways that future sugarcane varieties can be bred to offer the best performance for future climatic challenges such as increased water stress and increased carbon dioxide levels.
  • Getting the most from the crop 

    Unknown author (2015)
    Harvesting losses are a multi-million dollar cost to the Australian sugar industry since mechanical harvesting began. This information could prevent thousands of tonnes of millable cane being left infield.
  • Getting the value from milling statistics 

    Pfeffer, B (2016)
    Sugar Research Australia has published a guide to milling statistics for the 2014 season, providing a document that gives a comprehensive run-down on last year's crush.
  • GIVE 2009 project report 

    Di Bella, L (2009)
    The Grower Innovation Virtual Expo (GIVE 09) was hosted by the Herbert Young Farmers and Herbert and Tully grower groups. The event was also supported by Herbert Cane Productivity Services Limited (HCPSL), Tully Cane ...
  • Global change: helping inform the Australian sugar industry on potential impacts, possible adaptation strategies and best-bet investment of R&D 

    CSIRO; Queensland. Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries; Park, S; Howden, M (2007)
    Australia is facing some degree of continuing global change (IPCC 2007) (referred to as climate change in this report, and including climate variables and atmospheric gases). The Agriculture and Food Policy Reference Group ...
  • Going solo - thanks to ingenuity and innovation 

    Pfeffer, B (2017)
    He is 26 years old, but Bowen farmer David Richardson already has a decade of full time farming under his belt - something that is proving to be a valuable asset with the family being the only cane growers in the local region.
  • Green manuring and soil organic matter 

    King, NJ
    The following statement appears in 'Soil Conditions and Plant Growth,' by E. J. Russell. 'The effect of wild vegetation, sown grasses and clovers increasing the organic matter and nitrogen content of the soil, has long ...

  • Grower project yields lessons for soil health improvements 

    Pfeffer, B (2015)
    A Burdekin grower group project is finding that applying microbes to soils is not enough by itself to improve soil health, and that when applying microbes you need to consider the entire soil environment.
  • Grower survey identifies opportunities for RD&E
