Controlled environments produce new varieties in Natal



Controlled environments produce new varieties in Natal



Sugar Cane (Spring, Supplement): 28-30



The history of sugarcane breeding in Natal since c. 1850 is outlined, with particular emphasis on the use of controlled environments to produce varieties adapted to local conditions. A comparison of varieties released at different periods (pre-1945, 1945-1980 and post-1980) revealed a real increase in sugar production per ha over time.
