The response of sugarcane superior genotypes was studied for four consecutive years from 1991-92 to 1994-95 in plant and Raton stages. The studies were confined to the major aspects i.e sugar contents, sugar and cane yields. Variety CP-75/324 gave the highest cane sugar, yields of 94.335 and 7.95 t ha1 respectively. Varieties CP-65/357, PAS-132 and COL-75 were the next following and produced at par cane yield of 83.316, 83.114 and 81.952 t ha1 respectively. Variety S-82-US-624 showed highest sugar% (9.67). Varieties CP-51/21, CP-65/357 and BF-162 ranked next for sugar contents i.e 9.59, 8.80 and 8.79 percent respectively. CP-51/21 and CP-65/57 followed CP-75/324 for sugar yield by producing 7.47 and 7.29 t ha1, respectively. According to the results it is concluded that variety CP-75/324 possessed the highest cane, sugar yield, considerable sugar percent and therefore proved as the most suitable variety for the area. It was approved as a new commercial variety for the area with local name "Bannu-1" during 1992.
