SRDC Research Project final report Increased CCS, cane yield and water use efficiency by exploiting interactions between genetics and management
In October 2003 delegates at an international workshop on sugarcane physiology funded by SRDC concluded that priority should be directed at a better understanding of traits responsible for high yield and high sucrose ...
Climate ready sugarcane : traits for adaptation to high CO2 levels
Recent work in Brazil and Florida had shown strong responses of sugarcane to elevated CO2, even under well-watered conditions. These results were not expected from current understanding of leaf physiology, given that ...
Knowledge of sugarcane physiology and climate-crop-soil interactions : SRDC final report
Compared to other crops, knowledge of growth mechanisms in sugarcane is inadequate. The question arises as to how much longer can we continue to prosper from sugarcane if knowledge of the growth processes on which our ...
Pathways to exploiting enhanced photosynthetic efficiency for higher sucrose and biomass yield
Australia has one of the highest commercial cane sugar (CCS) levels in the world but unfortunately CCS appears to have plateaud at about 14% of fresh cane weight over the past 20 years. Up to now in breeding programs, ...
Efficient use of water resources in sugar production: a physiological basis for crop response to water supply
Although sugar is produced in the some of the most humid regions of Australia, water remains a major limitation to production. Experience in other rainfed and irrigated production systems in Australia has shown that use ...
