Early prediction of juice Brix and associated fibre content at maturity in sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) cultivated in Barbados [Full subscriber]

An analysis of juice Brix and fibre was performed at five, four and three months before the start of harvest (mid- February) and at maturity under humid tropical field conditions of Barbados in two experiments. In Trial-1, 12 sugarcane varieties were evaluated in the plant cane and first ratoon crops from October 2008 to February 2011 and in Trial-2, seven varieties were evaluated in the plant cane from October 2010 to February 2012 to determine the linear association of varietal performance in any of these three months with that at maturity. Both experiments were set in a randomized complete block…
