      Sugarcane growers heard from several experts on growing the crop during LSU AgCenter field days in St. Martinville and Jeanerette recently (July 19 and 23). Atticus Finger, sugarcane breeder for the American Sugar Cane League, and Michael Pontif, LSU AgCenter sugarcane breeder, talked about two new varieties of cane: L and Ho   Sugarcane planting is underway in the industry and a struggle as usual. If there should be a window between planting and harvest (or during early harvest), it would be a good time to sample old stubble fields and test for ratoon stunting disease (RSD). We need to know the variety, crop cycle year, and the healthy seedcane source (ASCL.

    Abstract This paper seeks to understand the role that climate variability has on annual yield of sugarcane in Louisiana. Unique features of sugarcane growth in Louisiana . The Projected Sugarcane Farm Costs and Returns Model was developed to assist sugarcane producers in planning for the crop year. Projected Costs and Returns for Sugarcane in Louisiana, This publication presents estimates of projected costs and returns for sugarcane production in Louisiana for the crop year.

      He expects mills to open for processing around Sept. 17 — an early start date that is necessary because this year’s crop is large. Gravois said the sugarcane belt has expanded by 10, to 12, acres, primarily on its western and northern fringes. Last year, total acreage in Louisiana was ,   Louisiana grows sugarcane in parts of 24 parishes and on farms statewide. Nearly , acres produce more than 15 million tons of cane to be ground down for consumer consumption. That’s a lot.

The outfield variety trials are cooperatively conducted at 12 locations throughout the Louisiana sugarcane belt by the LSU AgCenter, the USDA-ARS and the American Sugar Cane League. The experimental design at each outfield location was a randomized complete block design with three replications per location.

Sugarcane is a very traditional and economically important crop in Louisiana. The crop is vegetatively propagated by planting stalk sections containing buds (seed cane) rather than true seed. Sugarcane is adversely affected by a complex of diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

Pythium root rot of sugarcane. Sugarcane growers are constantly faced with managing a diverse and constantly changing complex of diseases. Mosaic is a disease that was responsible for the near collapse of the industry at the beginning of the 20 th Century.

Planting resistant varieties is the most effective method of control; however, finding varieties that are resistant to the genetic variability found.

The history. From as early as the s, Louisiana farmers have grown sugarcane. ByU.S. consumption was about 45 grams of refined sugar, or the equivalent of a ounce can of soda, every.

Since the early s, LSU and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, along with sugar cane farmers, have worked to continuously develop new varieties. Last year, sugar cane was grown in 24 parishes. The impact of on the Louisiana sugarcane industry wasn’t just in variety selection but in a major equipment shift.

Inincreased yields about 30 percent over the varieties it replaced. As was broadly adopted, producers began purchasing combine harvesters, typically used in areas where cane yields are 40 tons per acre, or better. Progress 01/01/99 to 12/31/04 Outputs Progress was made in all phases of the Louisiana Sugarcane Variety Development Program in A total of 92, seedlings from crosses were planted to the field in the spring.

Goals / Objectives The major goals of this project are to:(1) Identify current and relevant sugarcane production and farm management issues and problems facing the Louisiana sugarcane industry.(2) Develop and publish a representative set of annual projected costs and returns estimates for the production of sugarcane as a commodity enterprise in Louisiana.

By Dr. Kenneth Gravois, LSU AgCenter. Commercially grown sugarcane in Louisiana is a large grass with a complex genetic background derived from four different species within the genus stalks of sugarcane store sucrose, which has pleased the palate of humankind for countless generations.

The economic impact of sugarcane in southern Louisiana provides the influence for all of agriculture as sugarcane is the number one field crop contributing more than $2 billion to the state's economy behind forestry.

Major insect pests include the Mexican rice borer, the sugarcane borer, wireworms, and the sugarcane aphid which is a vector of sugarcane.

Louisiana Sugarcane Farm Jesuit priests first brought sugarcane to south Louisiana in One can only speculate as to whether or not they could foresee the joys and horrors the crop would bring for centuries to come.

Sugarcane is currently contributing over $2 billion per year to the state's economy and despite the trend for.Non Technical Summary Sugarcane varieties have long been relied upon as a means of increasing yield, preventing losses from both disease and insect pests, and other factors. There are no private research efforts in the area of sugarcane variety development in Louisiana.

The purpose of this project is to produce new and improved sugarcane varieties to Louisiana's sugarcane .
