Success! Your request has been sent and a SRA representative will be in contact soon.

The SRA sugarcane breeding program is a fully integrated conventional and molecular breeding activity. Our selection program uses optimal genetic evaluation systems to select parents, crosses and clones to deliver new varieties that are more productive and disease resistant.

Variety introduction and variety exchange programs at both a domestic and international level enhance the germplasm used for breeding and varietal development. Varieties from this program are protected by Plant Breeder's Rights (PBR).
