Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out with eighteen clones including four water logging tolerant checks at the Sugarcane Breeding Experimental Block of Norman Borlaug Crop Research Centre, Gobind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, India. Genetic variability was studied for thirteen different morphological and quality parameters viz., germination percent, number of tillers, number of millable canes, cane height, cane thickness, cane weight, cane yield, CCS yield, juice brix, sucrose %, purity %, CCS % and juice extraction percent. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among all the genotypes for all characters studied. Three genotypes or clones namely CoS 767, CoPant 90223 and CoPant 3220 had high number of millable canes than the check CoSe 96436 and found at par with other three checks. The clones CoS 767 and CoPant 90223 were superior than all four checks in terms of high sucrose content, purity percent and CCS percent. Juice purity was also recorded high for Co 1148, Cos 767 and CoPant 90223 also had cane and CCS yield at par with the best performing check under water logging conditions. On the basis of cane and quality attributes, the clones namely, CoS 767 and CoPant 90223 were found performing at par as compared to checks. The study also provides information about the performance of some of the promising sugarcane genotypes in respect of morphological and quality characters and identifies some prominent genotypes.
