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 ...
The transfer of high CCS traits from wild relatives to sugarcane using biochemical markers
Over the last 40 years of sugarcane breeding in Australia there have been significant improvements in cane yield but little to no improvement in commercial cane sugar (CCS). It has been hypothesised that this lack of gain ...
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, ...
Functional genomics for enhanced sugar accumulation in sugarcane : final report CPI002
Improvement in CCS of sugarcane would provide considerable benefits to the whole sugar industry by improving profitability via enhanced efficiencies in both sugarcane and raw sugar production. Improvements in CCS bring ...
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, ...
