Research to develop ‘CPCL 02-1295’ sugarcane (a complex hybrid of Saccharum spp.) was initiated by the United States Sugar Corporation (USSC), and completed cooperatively by the USDA-ARS, the University of Florida, and the Florida Sugar Cane League, Inc. CPCL 02-1295 was released to growers in Florida in 20 Sept. 2011. CPCL 02-1295 was selected from a cross of ‘CP 88-1762’ × genotype ‘CL 91-1637’ made at Clewiston, FL on 26 Dec. 2001. The female parent, CP 88-1762, is a major commercial cultivar in Florida due to its high sucrose yields on both muck and sand soils, occupying 23.1% of the total FL acreage in 2009. The male parent, CL 91-1637, reached the final testing stage of the USSC breeding program due to high biomass yields but was never released commercially due to low sucrose content. CPCL 02-1295 is resistant to brown rust (caused by Puccinia melanocephala H. & P. Sydow), Sugarcane mosaic virus strain E (mosaic) and smut (caused by Ustilago scitaminea (Sydow & P. Sydow). CPCL 02-1295 is moderately susceptible to leaf scald (caused by Xanthomonas albilineans Ashby, Dowson), and orange rust (caused by Puccinia kuehnii E.J. Butler). CPCL 02-1295 is recommended for both organic (muck) and sand soils in Florida where it had high plant cane tonnage and sucrose yields in both soil types in our tests.
