Sugarcane Breeding and Varietal Development (Egypt)
Project Number: 6410-21000-015-04
Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 01, 2009
End Date: Aug 30, 2014
The objective of this cooperative research project is to obtain improved efficiency in the development and testing of new sugarcane varieties through exchange and evaluation of germplasm (seed and vegetative sets) with the ultimate goal of releasing new, higher-yielding pest-resistant sugarcane varieties.
Through the duration of this agreement, ARS and the Cooperator will exchange seed and vegetative material of sugarcane germplasm consisting of experimental breeding lines and elite varieties for testing and evaluation for specific traits of interest or as commercial cultivars.
