Association of some cane sett assimilates with germination

Association of some cane sett assimilates with germination

Sugar Cane (2): 7-9

In studies with the early-maturing Co.J.64 and the late-maturing Co.1148, 12-month-old mother shoots were cut into upper, middle and basal portions (sets). The sets were planted and assessed for sprouting 30 days later. Upper sets gave maximum sprouting followed by the middle and basal sets; there were no appreciable differences between the 2 cultivars. There was a reduction in the level of Brix and soluble proteins, and an increase in reducing sugars, gums and moisture after set sprouting.
