The field experiment was conducted at Sugarcane Section, Agriculture Research Institute, TandoJam, Pakistan, during the year 2001-2002 for parameters of sugarcane varieties of other province with the locally evolved commercial variety Gulabi-95. The collection sources were, NARC Islamabad, SRI Faisalabad, SCRI Mardan, PARC Thatta and A.R.I. Tandojam. Among the tested varieties (CP-88/1165, SPF-213, ML-7, FAC-81-745, Thatta-10 and Gulabi-95). The local evolved commercial Gulabi-95 recorded maximum germination percentage, lengthy canes, more internode number, millable canes and cane yield. However, the qualitative parameters i.e. Brix and C.C.S which are important for evolving variety were found higher in the ML-7 sugarcane variety. It is recommended that further research should be performed on ML-7 and Thatta-10 as both varieties seems to be better in qualitative parameters.
