Abstract:
Performance of twelve sugarcane genotypes viz., Th-7, Th-9, Th-10, Th-12, Th-14, Th-18, Th-23, Th-27, Th-31, Th-32, Th-33 and Th-34 developed from local fuzz along with two check varieties BL-4 and BF-129 was studied in advance varietal selection trial at National Sugar Crops Research Institute, Thatta during 2000-2001. Data were recorded for cane girth, number of internodes/stalk, stalk height, millable cane m-2, cane yield t ha-1and brix percentage. On the basis of over all performance three genotypes namely Th-34, Th-10 and Th-33 were found promising and produced highest average cane yield 116, 115 and 112 t ha-1, respectively against the check varieties BL-4 (110 t ha-1) and BF-129 (98.5 t ha-1). The average Brix values recorded for Th-10, Th-34 and Th-33 were 23.7, 23.2 and 22.9%, respectively against the check varieties BL-4 (21.8%) and BF-129 (22.8%). Thus it was concluded that genotypes Th-34, Th-10 and Th- 33 might prove best commercial varieties in future. How ever potential of these genotypes need to be tested in different environmental conditions to elicit substantial conclusions
