New sugar va­ri­ety

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

TWO new sug­er­cane va­ri­eties have been ap­proved and are avail­able to cane grow­ers, how­ever a third new va­ri­ety has not been ap­proved for the re­gion. A BSES Limited hosted va­ri­ety adop­tion com­mit­tee has en­dorsed the new va­ri­eties, Q232A which is re­sis­tant to smut, a heavy flow­erer and has a good cane yield and A240A, which is re­sis­tant to smut and leaf scald. South John­stone miller and cane­grow­ers re­quested the re­lease of Q256, how­ever Moss­man will not rec­om­mend this va­ri­ety.
