Khan Bahadar, Mohammad Safdar Baloch, Hamdullah Azim Mohammad Suleman and Aminullah Khan


Ratooning of seven sugarcane varieties during 1996-97, 1998-99 and 1999-2000 revealed that Bannu-1, S-84-I-351 and Naurang-98 out yielded rest of the genotypes. Varieties S-84-I-351, S-86-US-422 and Naurang-98 showed higher sugar recovery over others. While, PAS-132 and COL-75 ranked poor in quantity as well as quality attributes. Varieties Bannu-1 and Naurang-98 have already been released for general cultivation while, S-84-I-351 is a candidate variety for approval.
