Key Gene to Accelerate Sugarcane Growth Is Identified

News

Sugarcane yields have been static for decades owing to constraints on culm (aerial stem) development. By manipulating the activity of this gene in transgenic sugarcane lines developed in Australia, the researchers succeeded in substantially increasing culm volume and changing the allocation of carbon to structural and storage molecules.
