Pre milling preparation of canes was done by two methods and the effect of these methods on sugar recovery and post harvest quality changes during storage were studied under two environmental conditions i.e February and April. In method one cane was topped by sickle without removal of any internode, while in method II, tops along with 3–4 internodes were(More)
Two field experiments were conducted to ascertain the potential of micropropagation technique for faster production of seed cane by using tissue culture plants raised through apical meristem culture in first generation (TC 0) followed by clonal propagation through cane setts in next generation (TC1). About 18, 520 plants, produced from a single shoot(More)
Metabolic changes in the contents of sucrose and hexoses in relation to activities of the principal enzymes involved in accumulation of sucrose in internodal storage tissue have been investigated in four sugarcane genotypes varying in maturity behaviour viz. Sel 69/01, Sel 943/98 (both early maturing) and CoS 8436, Sel 17/00 (both mid-late maturing) at(More)
Variability studies on sucrose metabolizing enzymes in relation to sucrose accumulation have been done in stem tissues of parents and a set of ten progenies of the cross Co 89003 (early maturing) × Co Se 92423 (late maturing) during sugarcane development. Sucrose content increased from stem elongation stage to maturity stage in both parents and progenies.(More)
In the present study, in vitro selection technique using pathogen culture filtrate of Colletotrichum falcatum Went was employed with the aim to identify associations (if any), between selection at the cellular and plant level for red rot resistance in sugarcane (Saccharum sp.). Five to eight months old sugarcane calli of genotypes CoJ 88 and CoJ 64 were(More)
Post harvest changes in the juice quality parameters in relation to storage time were investigated in three sugarcane genotypes varying in maturity behaviour viz.CoJ83 (early), CoJ88 (mid) and S70/00(late) under different environmental conditions i.e in the month of November, January and March. A gradual decrease in cane weight, % juice extraction, sucrose(More)
Spectroscopic and physical properties of Nd3+ doped sodium lead flouro- and chloro-borate glasses of the type 20NaX-30PbO-49.5B2O3-0.5Nd2O3 (X=F and Cl) have been investigated. Optical absorption spectra have been used to determine the Slater Condon (F2, F4, and F6), spin orbit xi4f and Racah parameters (E1, E2, and E3). The oscillator strengths and the(More)
The study was undertaken to determine the potential of general cross combinations in sugarcane, obtained by open pollinating the female parents, to generate variants for Brix (percent total soluble solids) content and frequency distribution pattern of variants, hence generated. Using Brix (an indicator of sucrose content) as selection criterion, 819(More)
The study was undertaken to determine the effect of different types of parental combinations of sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) on selection efficiency for HR Brix (per cent total soluble solids) in their progeny in the ratooned seedling stage. Three types of crosses involving subtropical and subtropical parents (Set 1); tropical and subtropical parents(More)
Alcohol production potential of six sugarcane varieties of different maturity groups (CoJ 83, CoJ 85, CoJ 82, CoJ 84, CoJ 88 and Col 148) were evaluated in both the plant and ratoon crops at PAU, SRS, Jalandhar, India. CoJ 88 was found to be the best variety having best combination of juice quality (CCS % = 13.42 & 13.85 and alcohol production L/t(More)
