Genetic instability during sugarcane micropropagation and its effect on agricultural productivity [Full subscriber]

Seed cane quality is important for sugarcane establishment and production. Currently, sugarcane micropropagation is the most feasible technique to meet the demand for good quality seed cane free from diseases and produced in a short time. However, depending on cultivar and its manipulation during micropropagation, this technique may result in variations in the quality and performance of seedlings produced. The most common variations are multi-bud and stalk strangling. RB835486 is one of the cultivars in which these variations can easily occur. To verify the occurrence of somaclonal variation in this cultivar, an experiment was conducted with five treatments using healthy…
