The irrigated northern region of the South African sugar industry consists of two main areas; Pongola and Komatipoort/ Malelane. A distance of about 400 km separates these areas. The initial stages of the breeding and selection programme (stages 1 through to 4) are conducted on the SASEX research station situated in the Pongola area. Secondary variety trials (stage 5 trials) are established on a minimum of two sites in both areas annually, to assess the performance of new selections.

Genetic Variability and Heritability among Sugarcane Genotypes in Plant Crop for Some Agronomic Traits under Tropical Dry Climate of Ferké, Ivory Coast

Findings obtained need to be confirmed over the 2019-20 cropping season in first ratoon crop to determine promising cane genotypes for the advanced selection stage, indicating high prospects for genetic progress through selection under conditions of this study.

Retrospective analysis of the relationships among the test environments of the Southern Queensland sugarcane breeding programme

Retrospective analysis of sugar yield data from multi environment trials (METs) which were part of the sugarcane breeding programme in southern Queensland suggested that some aspects of CxL and clone by crop-year (CxY) interactions were repeatable across years.

Identifying mega-environments and targeting genotypes

Preliminary results indicate that a small and workable number of mega-environments often suffices to exploit interactions and increase yields.

Impact of genotype multiply environment interaction on response to selection in sugarcane

Genotype x environment interaction, on both a family and clonal basis, was large enough to affect the gains made from selection, and selections based on the results from the central experiment station produced relatively poor gains when assessed over all locations and crop-years.

Crop Effects on Broad‐Sense Heritabilities and Genetic Variances of Sugarcane Yield Components

Estimates of genetic variances and derived statistics of pertinent traits are essential for efficient plant breeding programs for clonal sugarcane populations in Louisiana to determine the relative importance of years, locations, and crops.
