Abstract:

Swarnamukhi (Co T 10367) an early maturing clone was developed from CoH 110 GC at Agricultural Research Station, Perumallapalle. The variety tested in sixteen locations of peninsular zone (AICRP, Sugarcane) centers was ranked 3rd, 5th and 2nd for CCS yield (13.44 t/ha), Cane yield (103.04 t/ha) and sucrose (18.49%), respectively. Juice sucrose % at 10th month after planting was 18.49% which was at par with national checks. It was found to be moderately resistant to red rot, resistant to smut, moderately resistant to wilt and moderately susceptible to pokkah boeing diseases. It is a good ratooner yielding good quality jaggery. It has recorded 57.5% increase in jaggery yield (10.1 t/ha) over 83 V 15 (6.4 t/ha) with good quality. The clone is suitable for wide row planting. The tolerance of this clone to salinity and its ability to respond to drought management practices makes it suitable for cultivation under saline and drought conditions with less loss in delayed harvesting. This variety can be identified by its yellow cane colour when unexposed and purple on exposure to sunlight. It has cylindrical internodes with straight alignment; spineless leaf sheath and weak clasping. Bud is medium in size, ovate in shape and bud cushion is absent. Crown is erect, leaves are long and broad. Swarnamukhi was released and recommended for commercial cultivation in Andhra Pradesh by State variety release sub-committee in 2018.
