An experiment was conducted with 15 early maturing sugarcane clones to study the genetic variability for yield and associated characters. The analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among the clones for all twenty three characters. The Variability studies showed moderate estimates of GCV and PCV for traits viz., germination percent, cane diameter at harvest, pol percent in juice at 8 month stage, CCS percent at 8 month, sugar yield and cane yield at harvest. In present set of materials high heritability with high genetic advance as per cent of mean was found in germination percent, cane diameter at harvest, pol in juice at 8 month stage, CCS at8 month and sugar yield at harvest while high heritability with moderate genetic advance as percent of means was observed for plant height at 240 days and at harvest single cane weight, number of shoots, single cane weight, millable cane at harvest, brix percent at 8 month, CCS at 10 month and cane yield at harvest, indicating the role of dominant genetic effects in determination of these characters and its improvements in early maturing sugarcane clones.
