    Description

    This study was initiated to determine factors important for rhizome cutting propagation of giant cane for use in canebreak restoration. Experiment I showed that greater numbers of culms were produced for rhizomes with more internodes especially when surface planted rather than buried. Experiment II determined that 76 percent of the 435 rhizomes tested produced at least one culm and, of these, 28 percent had produced two or more culms. Culm production varied by date of collection and collection site (putative genotype). These results suggest that rhizome cutting propagation may be used to improve the success of giant cane restoration efforts.
