- ... Sugarcane is a crop which is primarily grown between 30°N and 30°S latitude in tropical environments. Small areas of production in sub-tropical regions exist, and there is an increasing desire to produce the crop in colder environments. Cold-tolerant sugarcane is important both to the sub-tropical sugarcane industries and potential biofuels producers who seek to use sugarcane as a feedstock. Selec ...

- ... Brown rust, caused by Puccinia melanocephala, is an important disease of sugarcane worldwide. Molecular markers for a major brown rust resistance gene, Bru1, were used to screen a total of 1,282 clones in the World Collection of Sugarcane and Related Grasses (WCSRG) to determine the distribution and frequency of the gene in Saccharum species and related genera. Bru1 was found across all species wi ...
