Evaluation of the effects of rare earth elements on sugarcane in North Queensland
During 1988 BSES submitted a proposal to the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering for partial funding of a research project to investigate the response of sugarcane in North Queensland to rare earth ...
Fibre characteristics of cane - results of measurements carried out at Bundaberg during 1987 season
During September, 1987 a total of twenty-three samples of cane were tested for extreme fibre characteristics at BSES in Bundaberg. The main purpose of this testing program, which was introduced during 1986 season, is to ...
Development of a biological control against sugarcane poor root syndrome
The overall objective of the project was to search for and develop an economically effective biocontrol against sugarcane poor root syndrome (PRS). The disease was known to be caused by two pathogenic fungi: Pythium ...
The effect of sugarcane rust (Puccinia melanocephala) on yield
This report details the results obtained from two trials to assess yeild loss caused by sugarcane rust and also outlines the epiphytotiology of the rust disease.
Development of a fungicide spray schedule to determine the effect of sugarcane rust (Puccinia melanocephala) on yield
This study reports on work carried out to develop a fungicide spray program which is suitable for yield loss assessment investigations. Aspects examined include the efficacy of various concentrations of chlorothalonil and ...
Studies into races of sugarcane rust
A technique was developed for testing for physiological races of sugarcane rust. A range of cultivars were inoculated with a single spore isolate of Puccinia melanocephala by discharging 3 mg of urediospores into a spore ...
Herbicide efficacy screen North Queensland 1986 season
In 1984 a wide range of herbicide treatments were evaluated against a number of weed species. Results demonstrated the weakness and strengths of various products, and the optimum timing of application. To further improve ...
Regeneration of sugarcane plants from protoplasts and application of genetic transformation systems to sugarcane
Current gene transfer systems developed for modifying plants include direct gene transfer to protoplasts and Agrobacterium mediated gene transfer. These studies have important practical implications for application of ...
Biomass accumulation in sugarcane : final report 79/9028
Growth analysis experiments were conducted at Ayr and Bundaberg from 1979 to 1982 to study biomass accumulation in plant and ratoon crops of sugarcane. Crops were planted and ratooned in March, June, September and December, ...
