Khan Bahadar, Mohammad Jamal, Mohammad Safdar Baloch, Hamdullah Azim and Khalid Nawab

Abstract

Response of 17 sugarcane varieties was observed in 3 plant and 3 ratoon stages from 1996-97 to 1998-99. The analysis of mean values revealed that varieties Bannu-1, Naurang-98, 5-84-I-351 and S-82-US-624 possessed better cane yield and sugar recovery. Varieties Bannu-1 and S-84-I-351 exhibited higher stalk yield and considerable sugar recovery. Variety COL-75 although, produced highest cane yield in plant crop, 1998-99 but poor in sugar contents. While, S-82-US-624 and S-88-US-402 showed better cane yield and the highest sugar recovery. Varieties Bannu-1 and Naurang-98 have already been approved for general cultivation in the area. While varieties S-84-I-351, S-82-US-624 and S-88-US-402 are the candidates varieties and are under consideration for commercial cultivation in the area. Short title: Response of distinct sugarcane varieties.
