Sugarcane breeding in different environments

Taiwan Sugar 35(3): 9-15

Sugarcane breeding in different environments

An outline is given of the Regional Selection (RS) Program for sugarcane breeding in Taiwan. Begun in 1971 at the Taiwan Sugar Research Institute, the aim was to breed varieties adapted to the different regions of the country. Nine such regions were identified and an RS station was established in each. A dual selection procedure was adopted in which selections were made initially by staff at each RS station and finally by staff from the Department of Breeding and from other stations.
