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 ...
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 ...
Regeneration of sugarcane plants from protoplasts
This study aimed to develop a protoplast regeneration system for sugarcane so that gene transfer techniques could be applied for cultivar improvement. Published techniques for embryogenic callus culture, cell suspension ...
