Abstract Plant-associated fungi are considered a vast source for biotechnological processes whose potential has been poorly explored.
The interactions and diversity of sugarcane, one of the most important crops in Brazil, have been rarely studied, mainly concerning fungal communities and their interactions with transgenic plants. Taking this into consideration, the purpose of this study was, based on culture dependent strategy, to determine the structure and diversity of the fungal community (root endophytes and rhizosphere) associated with two varieties of sugarcane, a non-genetically modified (SP80-1842) variety and its genetically modified counterpart (IMI-1, expressing imazapyr herbicide resistance).
For this, the sugarcane varieties were evaluated in three sampling times (3, 10 and 17 months after planting) under two crop management (weeding and herbicide treatments).

Agricultural Biotechnology. VIETNAMNET 23/01/16 Vietnam denies cultivation of GM sugarcane. VietNamNet Bridge – The Department of Cultivation under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has rejected news that Vietnam has imported genetically modified (GM) sugarcane for cultivation.
The department has written to the Vietnam Sugar and Sugarcane Association (VSSA) dismissing the news after a number of food producers asked the association to make clear whether local sugar mills used GM sugarcane or not. Circular 72/2009/TT-BNNPTNT specifies only GM corn, soybean and cotton have been test-cultivated to evaluate their impact on biodiversity and the environment in the country. So far, the mass planting of GM corn has been approved. SCIENCES 2.0 04/08/15 Miscanes: Genetically Modified Sugarcane Can Grow Farther North. U.S. farmers have long hoped to extend sugarcane's growing range northward from the Gulf coast because it substantially increase the land available for sugar and (for as long as subsidies last) biofuels.
Several hybrid canes developed in the 1980s have proved hardy in cooler climes, surviving overwinter as far north as Booneville, Arkansas, but no one had tested whether the offspring of crosses between sugarcane and a hardy, cold-tolerant grass, Miscanthus - "miscanes" - actually photosynthesize, and thus continue to grow, when the thermometer dips. Researchers now report that two miscanes perform as well as the grass species Miscanthus x giganteus at 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius), staying green and converting carbon dioxide to plant matter at a steady rate.
Although the rate of photosynthesis drops at 50 degrees, it doesn't stall out altogether, as it does in sugarcane. Field studies confirmed the laboratory findings. ACTAHORT - 2011 - PROGRESS IN RESEARCH ON GENETICALLY MODIFIED SUGARCANE IN SOUTH AFRICA AND ASSOCIATED REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS. CATCH NEWS 04/05/16 Can GM Sugarcane really make a difference in drought-hit areas?
Will genetically engineered sugarcane be the panacea of drought-hit Karnataka and Maharashtra?
The two states are suffering not just from shortage of drinking water, but also from economic losses from cash crops. Sugarcane, in turn, is being blamed for making the drought worse as it is a water-intensive crop. In Maharashtra, while sugarcane occupies under 10% of cultivated area, it guzzles three-fourth of all water used in agriculture. Now there are reports that the Modi government is interested in introducing a sugarcane variety that is genetically altered to grow with less water. This means that farmers won't lose money during drought and can save water too. The environment minister Prakash Javadekar has reportedly written to former agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, that the government intends to encourage field trials of the GM sugarcane developed by Indian Council of Agricultural Research's Sugarcane Breeding Institute, Coimbatore.

PLOS 19/04/16 Transgenic Sugarcane with a cry1Ac Gene Exhibited Better Phenotypic Traits and Enhanced Resistance against Sugarcane Borer. Abstract We developed sugarcane plants with improved resistance to the sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis (F).
An expression vector pGcry1Ac0229, harboring the cry1Ac gene and the selectable marker gene, bar, was constructed. This construct was introduced into the sugarcane cultivar FN15 by particle bombardment. Transformed plantlets were identified after selection with Phosphinothricin (PPT) and Basta. Plantlets were then screened by PCR based on the presence of cry1Ac and 14 cry1Ac positive plantlets were identified. Citation: Gao S, Yang Y, Wang C, Guo J, Zhou D, Wu Q, et al.

More than Just a Sugar Crop When we think of sugarcane, right away we associate it with table sugar, the most popular sweetener also chemically known as sucrose.
In fact, this grass of the genus Saccharum accounts for 80% of sucrose produced worldwide, with the remaining 20% coming from sugarbeet. Each year around two billion metric tons of sugarcane stalks are crushed in sugar mills to get the sucrose juice. But there is certainly more to this crop than the sweet juice within. With traditional technologies, sugarcane can yield a variety of products from fiber to chemicals. Boosting the Sucrose Yield.

Critical Need: Biofuels offer renewable alternatives to petroleum-based fuels that reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to nearly zero.
However, traditional biofuels production is limited not only by the small amount of solar energy that plants convert through photosynthesis into biological materials, but also by inefficient processes for converting these biological materials into fuels. Farm-ready, non-food crops are needed that produce fuels or fuel-like precursors at significantly lower costs with significantly higher productivity. To make biofuels cost-competitive with petroleum-based fuels, biofuels production costs must be cut in half. BMC Genomics. 2012 Nov 21;13(1):658.

Ribeirão Preto (Brazil), June 18: Trial planting of genetically-modified (GM) sugarcane is likely to begin in October this year in Brazil.
The Switzerland-based agri-business firm Syngenta will carry out the trials after having developed the GM variety. According to Mr Daniel Bachner, Global Sugarcane Head of Syngenta, the trials may last at least two harvests before the Brazilian authorities give permission for its commercial launch. The genetically modified sugarcane was developed in the US by Syngenta.
The variety is tolerant to herbicides, pests and the stem borer. “The borer gets into the stem and starts eating the fibre.

The University of Queensland; BSES Limited Current community attitudes towards genetically modified (GM) plants are quite negative, with the sugar industry having apparently accepted the view that sugar from genetically modified cane is regarded so badly by consumers at the present time that it could not be marketed successfully. Key words: biotechnology, consumer attitudes, focus groups, genetic engineering, transgenic cane.
