Saccharum hybrid cultivar
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) is a major crop with vegetative propagationandcapacitytoaccumulatehighlevelsofsucrose in the culms. World production of this crop in 2011 resulted in about two billion tons of raw material, which corresponded to a gross income of more than US$ 52 billion.
- Despite the economic importance of sugarcane, the knowledge of relevant genetic mechanisms remains challenging, due to the fact that this crop presents one of the largest and most intricate genomes of the plant kingdom, with diploid numbers ranging from 100 to 130 chromosomes, indicating a high ploidy level, as well as regular aneuploidy events.
- The use of sugarcane (Saccharum spp) as a source of sugar and ethanol has been very important to the Brazilian economy. In 2010/2011, 624 million tons of sugarcane were produced and used for the production of 33 million tons of sugar and 27.6 billion liters of ethanol (http://jornalcana.com.br/). In 2013/14, sugarcane cultivation continued to expand to about 314,000 ha, equivalent to an increase of 3.7% compared to the 2012/13 crop (CONAB, 2015; http://www.conab.gov.br).  .
