About the book

Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.), family Poaceae, has been grown globally is known for producing 70% of global sugar production. Given rapid advances and research in the field of sugarcane, this book is intended to give recent advances and knowledge on sugarcane cultivation, breeding, and its by-products. Also, the present book contains a series of research work and reviews on sugarcane cultivation targeting an audience of academics, researchers, and other scientists. Biotechnology has the potential to improve sugarcane by generating diseases resistance, abiotic and biotic tolerance varieties to improve the yield.

This book expands its scope in the field of breeding and genetic transformation and the generation of new cultivars and new products. It highlights the recent trends in the research work of sugarcane to improve its sustainable production and its applications. Sugarcane has a wide range of industrial applications. This plant is highly affected by pathogens and pests causing a significant loss in yield every year. Therefore, this book also discusses sugarcane diseases and the development of a resistant variety of sugar. This book introduces the readers to the exploration and innovations in the area of biofuel production.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Tikel

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
