Sugarcane – 540

HoCP 96-540 was derived from a cross made between LCP 86-454 as the female parent and LCP 85-384 as the male parent. HoCP 96-540 is a variety that has a moderate population of medium sized stalks with good stubbling ability. HoCP 96-540 is considered to be a mid-maturing variety with excellent stalk density that provides for superior sugar and cane yields (Tew et al. 2005).
