Ripening of Sugarcane: Effects of Sunlight, Temperature, and Rainfall1

  1. B. L. Legendre2

Abstract

Abstract

The effects of incident sunlight, temperature, and rainfall on ripening of sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) were studied with five interspecific hybrids selected for subtropical conditions. Ripening was associated with both incident sunlight and temperature, but not with rainfall. Partial correlations reinforced the independence of ripening on incident sunlight, but showed that the associations of ripening with temperature were spurious. Partial correlation also showed an interacting effect of incident sunlight and temperature on ripening that varied with the cultivar. There was a significant difference between cultivars in the associations between ripening and sampling dates.
