Development of ‘CPCL 95-2287’ sugarcane (a complex hybrid of Saccharum spp.) is the latest in a series of commercial sugarcane cultivar releases originating from the United States Sugar Corporation (USSC) and completed by the cooperative Canal Point sugarcane breeding and selection program which included the USDA-ARS, the University of Florida, and the Florida Sugar Cane League, Inc. CPCL 95-2287, which was released in Florida on 20 Sept. 2011, was selected from a cross of genotype CL 78-1120 x CL 78-1600 made at Clewiston, FL on 27 Dec. 1994. The female and male parents, CL 78-1120 and CL 78-1600 respectively, were proprietary genotypes of USSC. CPCL 95-2287 was released because of its high cane yield, moderate levels of commercial recoverable sucrose on organic (muck) soils, and its resistance to brown rust (caused by Puccinia melanocephala H. & P. Sydow), smut (caused by Ustilago scitaminea H. & P. Sydow), Sugarcane mosaic virus strain E (mosaic), leaf scald (caused by Xanthomonas albilineans Ashby, Dowson), and its moderate resistance to orange rust (caused by Puccinia kuehnii E.J. Butler). All of these diseases are of economic importance to sugarcane production in Florida.
