Near-infrared spectroscopy for the prediction of disease ratings for Fiji leaf gall in sugarcane clones.

This paper demonstrates how inferential measurements or indirect methods using near-infrared (NIR) methodology and chemometrics can be used to predict sugarcane clonal performance. Fiji leaf gall resistance is used in this study as an example. Fiji leaf gall is one of Australia's most serious sugarcane diseases, representing a significant problem in almost… CONTINUE READING
