EVERY sugarcane grower would like the best levels of performance for all traits, such as high cane yield, high sugar content, resistance or tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress, and every other desirable attribute, all combined together into the same variety. In the real world, however, almost all the important crop traits vary continuously and mostly independently, in genetic populations generated in breeding programs. Therefore, the best levels of all or even most crop traits will hardly…

Genetic Variability and Heritability among Sugarcane Genotypes at Early Stage of the Advanced Selection for some Agronomic Traits in Ferké, Northern Ivory Coast

Four promising genotypes namely RCI 12/15, RCI12/19, RCi13/121 and RCI13/136 were equivalent to the check variety which performed 15.6 t/ha, and are due to undergo the advanced selection stage during the 2020-21 cropping season for three more years for determining the first new sugarcane varieties of RCI origin to be tested commercially in Ferké sugar estates.

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.

Applications of Quantitative Genetics and Statistical Analyses in Sugarcane Breeding

An overview of the main applications developed in statistical methodology in support of the efficiency of sugarcane breeding programs is presented and its conceptual and methodological framework is presented.

Relative economic genetic value (rEGV) - an improved selection index to replace Net Merit Grade (NMG) in the Australian sugarcane variety improvement program.

NET MERIT Grade (NMG), a selection index developed more than 40 years ago, has been used exclusively by breeders to rank and select clones in the Australian sugarcane breeding programs. However, due

Screening of Fifteen Sugarcane Genotypes under Irrigation based on Genetic Variations and Heritability for Agro-morphological Traits at Early Selection Stage in Ferké, Ivory Coast

Not only sugar yield, but also, recoverable sucrose, cane internode infestation rate and number of tillers per hectare were found as the most relevant agro-morphological traits in genetic variation of sugarcane genotypes tested in line of their higher broad sense heritability values.

Sugarcane Breeding in Australia

Key infrastructure for the efficient and effective operation of the program and activities for improving the program are presented.

Family Selection Improves the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Selecting Original Seedlings and Parents

In Australia, current research is aimed at improving the BLUP estimates by combining data across all selection programs, including family × environment interactions, and partitioning the genetic effects of each parent into additive and non-additive genetic effects.

Statistical Approaches in Plant Breeding: Maximising the Use of the Genetic Information

Two critical stages of a plant improvement programme are the creation of genetic variation and discriminating this variation through progeny evaluation, which is essential to optimise the experimental design and plot technique and statistical analyses of genetic tests.

Addressing factory needs in cane variety selection

NIR methodology is proposed as a technology to lead to a more rapid assessment of fibre properties, and hence the opportunity to more comprehensively test for fibre impacts at an earlier stage of variety development.

Selection of Sugarcane Clones in Small Plots: Effects of Plot Size and Selection Criteria

It is suggested that selection in small plots in early stages of selection in sugarcane breeding programs should be based largely on sugar content, because measuring cane yield in such trials may be inefficient and where destructive measurement via mechanical harvesting is in volved, may unnecessarily delay progression of selected clones through to the next stage of selection.

Multiple trait selection in a recurrent selection population in oat (Avena sativa L.)

Restricted and Smith index selection were effective at preventing secondary traits from deteriorating through selection for grain yield, and more correction was achieved with the modified base index, the multiplicative index and independent culling, but yield decreased accordingly.

Selection index for improving Helminthosporium leaf blight resistance, maturity, and kernel weight in spring wheat

Results suggested that selection for early maturing, HLB-resistant wheat lines with high grain yield and kernel weight is possible with a selection index (I S) combining the area under disease progress curve (AUDPC) as an assessment of disease severity, days to heading (DHD), and thousand-kernel weight (TKW).
