Abstract:

An investigation was carried out with the eighteen high sucrose containing sugarcane clones to estimate the extent of variability for various productive traits under water-logged condition. The analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among the clones for fourteen traits and significant for rest traits viz., germination % at 45 DAP, plant height at 150 days, single cane weight and purity % at 10 month stage. The Variability studies showed high estimates of GCV and PCV for traits viz., length of aerial root and dry weight of aerial roots. In present set of materials high heritability with high genetic advance as per cent of mean was found in length of aerial root. Similarly, high heritability with moderate genetic advance as percent of means was observed for plant height at 240 days, height at 360 days, pol per cent at 12 month stage and single cane weight, indicating the role of dominant genetic effects in determination of these characters and its improvements.


Keywords: Sugarcane, Water logging, Variability, PCV, GCV, Heritability, Genetic advance.
