‘CP 00-2180’ (Reg. No. CV-134, PI 654093) sugarcane (a complex hybrid of Saccharum spp.) was developed through cooperative research conducted by the USDA-ARS, the University of Florida, and the Florida Sugar Cane League, Inc., and was released to growers in Florida in September 2007. CP 00-2180 was selected from a self-cross of cultivar HoCP 91-552 made at Canal Point, FL, in January 1998. Based on its high cane yields and fiber content (16%), HoCP 91-552 was released as a cultivar for bioenergy in Louisiana. CP 00-2180 was released and recommended for sand soils in Florida because of its high plant cane and acceptable ratoon per hectare yields of cane and sucrose and commercial recoverable sucrose on sand soils, and its resistance to smut [caused by Ustilago scitaminea (Sydow & P. Sydow)], brown rust (caused by Puccinia melanocephala H. & P. Sydow), orange rust (caused by Puccinia kuehnii E.J. Butler), leaf scald [caused by Xanthomonas albilineans (Ashby) Dowson], Sugarcane mosaic virus strain E, and ratoon stunting disease (caused by Clavibacter xyli subsp. xyli Davis) in Florida.
