ABSTRACT

A investigation was undertaken to assess the interrelationship of cane yield and its traits in sugarcane at National Sugar Crops Research Institute, farm Thatta, during 2000-2001. It was observed that cane girth, number of internodes per plant, cane height and millable canes m-2 were positively and highly significantly correlated with cane yield, the regression coefficients for these traits on cane yield were also positive. Multiple correlation and partial regression analysis indicated that cane girth, number of internodes per plant, cane height and millable canes m-2 should be considered in selecting high yielding strains.
