Germplasm Collection and Registration

Germplasm Exploration

Germplasm Exploration

  • An exploration for collection of wild sugarcane was conducted in different parts of Maharashtra state during October-November 2015 and collected 41 Saccharum spontaneum and two Erianthus bengalense clones.
  • From an exploration undertaken to collect germplasm from the north-eastern states of Nagaland and Manipur, during Sep-Oct 2011, 108 clones were collected which included five S. officinarum, 98 S. spontaneum, four Erianthus sps. and one Narenga.
  • An exploration was conducted in West Bengal during September 2010 for the collection of wild germplasm. Ten districts were surveyed and 41 collections of S. spontaneum, Erianthus rufipilus, E. elephantinus and E. arundinaceus were made.
  • Augmentation of genetic resources through exploration in the Himalayan states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand during Aug-Sep 2009:- 28 collections of Saccharum spontaneum, Erianthus fulvus and Miscanthus species from Himachal and 25 clones (S.spontaneum, Miscanthus) from Uttarakhand

Germplasm Conservation

The sugarcane germplasm comprising 3368 accessions are clonally maintained at the Kannur Research Centre. 24 clones were maintained in vitro.

At Coimbatore, a total of 1,320 wild germplasm clones comprising S. spontaneum, Erianthus spp., improved high fiber clones (48) and allied genera were re-planted in the field during August-September 2011. It includes 962 accessions of S. spontaneum, 310 accessions of Erianthus spp. and 48 accessions of allied genera.

Five clones of E. rufipilus (E. fulvus) and three clones of Miscanthus nepalensis collected from Meghalaya in 2006 are maintained at IARI Regional station, Wellington.
