    • A review of nitrogen use efficiency in sugarcane 

      Bell, MJ; Biggs, J; McKellar, LB; Connellan, J; Di Bella, L; Dwyer, R; Empson, M; Garside, AJ; Harvey, T; Kraak, J; Lakshmanan, P; Lamb, DW; Meier, E; Moody, P; Muster, T; Palmer, J; Robinson, N; Robson, A; Salter, B; Schroeder, B; Silburn, M; Schmidt, S; Skocaj, DM; Stacey, S; Stanley, J; Thorburn, P; Verburg, K; Walker, C; Wang, W; Wood, A (2015)
      The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is the world's largest coral reef ecosystem, providing both substantial economic benefit to Australia and significant international ecological value. The health of the GBR is under pressure ...
    • A sugarcane tissue culture system for mass propagation and transformation : SRDC final report BSS242 

      Lakshmanan, P; Grof, C; Geijskes, R (2004)
      The core research strategy we conceived was to develop the initial observation of direct shoot regeneration in sugarcane leaf tissues to a generic and efficient plant production technology for sugarcane and probably for ...
    • Field assessment and further development of high-sucrose sugarcane: final report 2014/069 

      Wu, L; Lakshmanan, P; Zhao, L (Sugar Research Australia Limited, 2017)
      Sucrose accumulation is critically important in determining sugarcane productivity. Yet, improvement in sucrose content in sugarcane has been almost stagnant for decades in many sugarcane growing countries, including ...
    • Meristem transformation for sugarcane genetic engineering : SRDC final report BSS209 

      Smith, GR; Lakshmanan, P; Elliott, AR; Grof, CPL (1999)
    • More crop per drop : SRDC final report BSS305 

      Basnayake, J; Jackson, P; Inman-Bamber, G; Lakshmanan, P (2011)
      Water stress is the major constraint to productivity in the Australian sugar industry, with an estimated cost of $260 million/annum (CSE014 Milestone Report 3.5). In 2003 and 2004, the losses exceeded $140 million in ...
    • SaveN Cane : developing selection tools for N-efficient sugarcane 

      Schmidt, S; Lakshmanan, P; Cox, M; Robinson, N (2015)
      This project supports the sugar industry’s intensifying efforts to reduce its nitrogen (N) footprint that is caused by inefficient use of N fertiliser by the crop. The industry aims to minimise N pollution of coastal waters ...
    • SRDC Research Project Harnessing soil biology to improve the productivity of the new sugarcane farming system 

      Schmidt, S; Schenk, P; Lakshmanan, P (2010)
      This project addresses the knowledge gap of how management affects soil biological processes. This is important because management has to maximise soil health and nutrient relations. Knowledge of soil biology in context ...
    • Sugarcane for future climates : final report 2013/029 

      Stokes, C; Jackson, P; Basnayake, J; Inman-Bamber, G; Lakshmanan, P; Natarajan, S (Sugar Research Australia Limited, 2017)
      Increasing costs of irrigation in irrigated production regions, and seasonal periods of water deficits in rain-fed production regions are impacting greatly on profitability, sustainability, and expansion of the Australian ...
