‘CP 05-1526’ (Reg. No. CV-155, PI 667554) sugarcane (a complex hybrid of Saccharum spp.) was developed through cooperative research conducted by the USDA-ARS, the University of Florida, and the Florida Sugar Cane League, Inc., and released to growers for organic (muck) and sand soils in Florida in October 2012. CP 05-1526 was selected from the cross CP 98-1029 × CP 88-1162 made at Canal Point, FL in December 2002. The female parent (CP 98-1029) is a sugarcane cultivar released for commercial use in Florida in 2005. The male parent (CP 88-1162) is an experimental clone of the Canal Point sugarcane breeding and cultivar selection program. CP 05-1526 was released because of its high cane and sucrose yields and acceptable commercial recoverable sucrose on both muck and sand soils, and its acceptable levels of resistance to brown rust (caused by Puccinia melanocephala H. & P. Sydow), orange rust (caused by Puccinia kuehnii E.J. Butler), leaf scald (caused by Xanthomonas albilineans Ashby, Dowson), Sugarcane mosaic virus strain E (mosaic), ratoon stunt (caused by Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli Evtsuhenko et al.), and smut (caused by Ustilago scitaminea H. & P. Sydow) in Florida. CP 05-1526 has an intermediate level of freeze tolerance based on its relative rank of 11 in 22 genotypes tested and analyzed for temporal sucrose deterioration under field conditions.
