Hot-water treatment of sugarcane cuttings (stalks or stalk pieces) to control the spread of diseases and pests was pioneered in Australia. Hot-water treatment can reduce the risk of cuttings being infected with ratoon ...
Influence of harvester basecutters on ratooning of sugarcane : SRDC final report BSS123
Current single row mechanical sugarcane harvesters use twin rotary basecutters with multiple blades to produce an impact cut in the stalk at or near ground level. However, the cane stubble is often damaged during harvesting, ...
Improving planting systems for sugarcane : SRDC final report BSS208
This project has researched the major factors affecting the establishment of a sugarcane crop. Adoption of a systems approach has resulted in an improved planting system that matches the requirements of the growing of ...
Smut-proofing the Australian industry - ensuring a reliable cane supply through reduced genetic vulnerability to sugarcane smut
Since the smut incursion and subsequent spread of the disease breeding for smut resistance has become an essential priority for the BSES-CSIRO Variety Improvement program. The strategy that has been adopted includes the ...
Screening of Australian germplasm for resistance to sugarcane smut - SRDC final project report BSS214
Sugarcane smut is a destructive disease that has spread to all commercial sugarcane production areas except Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the east coast of Australia. The disease was recorded for the first time in Australia ...
Technical assessment of survival of smut spores in bales of sugarcane trash
This assessment considers the survival of smut spores in relation to the proposal to store baled trash until there was a low risk of viable spores being present.
Survey of sugarcane in eastern Australia for sugarcane smut : SRDC final report BSS230
Sugarcane smut is a serious disease of sugarcane that can cause yield losses in excess of 30% in susceptible varieties. The disease was found for the first time in Australia on the 21 July 1998 in the Ord River Irrigation ...
Effects of pachymetra root rot and nematodes on some elite sugarcane clones in Australia
PACHYMETRA ROOT ROT and nematodes are the two most important soil-borne pathogens of sugarcane in Australia. An experiment was established in Yandaran, Queensland in grey forest soil with high Pachymetra spore counts (>100 ...
Sugarcane smut yield-loss estimates - eastern Australia 2006 : Responses to questions raised by the consultative committee on emergency plant pests
This document has been prepared by BSES scientists with extensive experience with sugarcane smut. It is based on our reviews of published literature and first-hand experience with smut in the Ord River Irrigation area and ...
