Abstract:

An experiment was conducted with fifteen early maturing sugarcane clones to assess the genetic parameters for various productive traits. The analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among the clones for twenty one traits and significant for rest traits viz., purity at 8 month & pol in cane at harvest. The Variability studies showed moderate estimates of GCV and PCV for traits viz., single cane weight and cane yield at harvest. In present set of materials high heritability with high genetic advance as per cent of mean was found in cane yield at harvest. Similarly, high heritability with moderate genetic advance as percent of means was observed for Plant height at 150 and 240 days, cane diameter at harvest, single cane weight at harvest, number of milliable cane at harvest, indicating the role of dominant genetic effects in determination of these characters and its improvements in early maturing sugarcane clones.
