The Society for Sugarcane Research and Development (SSRD) was established in 2011 to serve as a platform for advancement of sugarcane research. The society functions in the campus of ICAR-Sugarcane Breeding Institute.

Sugarcane crop has been traditionally cultivated over centuries in India and other Asian countries for preparation of various sweeteners and to some extent for direct consumption. With the introduction of hybrid varieties, cane cultivation expanded to several regions in the country. During the expansion of the crop area, different disease problems have also been encountered; some were disastro ...

Broadening genetic base through backcross breeding is an effective approach to generate diverse genetic stocks for important economic traits coupled with red rot resistance. Three hundred backcross hybrids developed by backcrossing elite F1 clones (derived by utilizing improved clones (S.officinarum, S. robustum and S. barberi) with improved S. officinarum or improved S. robustum or Co canes s ...

Sugarcane crop is an efficient harvester of solar energy. As a renewable energy resource crop, assessment of energy production potential of sugarcane commercial hybrids, gives an estimate of energy availability as whole biomass or bagasse alone. The energy production potential was estimated in six popular varieties, whose photosynthetic rate and, light interception were more or less similar. T ...

The present study focuses on changes in morphological, physiological and gene expression patterns in sugarcane, in response to waterlogging stress at seedling stage. Forty five days old seedlings were subjected to waterlogging for fifteen days. Significant reduction in seedling shoot length (16.5%) and root length (31.48%) were observed after 15 days of flooding. Irrespective of the genotypes, ...

Two field experiments were conducted to study the efficacy of clothionidin 50WDG against termites Odontotermes obesus Rambur (Isoptera: Termitidae) of sugarcane at the Department of Agricultural Entomology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during 2015 -2017. The experiments were conducted in a randomized block design with seven treatments replicated thrice with a plot size of 8 x ...

Commonly available low-cost natural substrates, including agricultural products and byproducts, were evaluated for blastospore production by the entomopathogenic fungi Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo)Vuillemin and Beauveria brongniartii(Sacc.) Petch, two common entomopathogenic fungi in sugarcane ecosystem. Of the resources namely Sesame Seed Cake Extract (SSCE), Groundnut Seed Cake Extract (GSCE) ...

Folmer region of mtCOI gene from sugarcane top borer, Scirpophaga excerptalis (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) has been cloned and characterized. This would be the ideal DNA barcode as it is 658 bp in size (KJ013411) and does not have any stop codon in its amino acid sequence. The COI fragment cloned in this study showed less than 89% identity with other species of Scirpophaga having full len ...

Two intergeneric hybrids of sugarcane, Co 86032 (2n=112) x Sorghum (2n=20) and Sorghum (2n=20) x S. officinarum (2n= 112), were subjected to classical as well as molecular cytological analysis. The hybridity of these clones has been confirmed by using SSR markers and chloroplast gene. During genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) the genome composition of the hybrids studied and it has revealed ...

Saccharum edule Hassk.is cultivated for its aborted edible inflorescence in pacific Islands. The most accepted classification of Saccharum comprises of six species including S.edule, but the status and origin of S.edule was in debate due to its similarities with S.robustum.Though molecular studies have been widely utilized in sugarcane systematic; S.edule was not included in any of these studi ...

Monocropping has resulted in high nutrient turn over in the soil-plant system and this is all the more pronounced in a crop like sugarcane of long duration. To sustain crop productivity and to ensure soil health, this nutrient depletion has to be stockpiled through an efficient nutrient supply approach including bio-fertilizers. However, such management practices have been largely overlooked b ...
