Abstract

Seventy three genotypes selected from the first clonal stage were evaluated for diversified uses viz., biomass per cane, fibre yield, theoretical yield of alcohol, commercial cane sugar (CCS) yield and cane yield in second clonal stage during 2011-12. Based on the mean performance of the genotypes viz., 2010T-152 and 2010T-53 showing high performance for biomass, fibre yield, CCS yield, theoretical yield of alcohol and cane yield; the genotypes viz., 2010T-146 and 2010T-84 showing higher performance for biomass, fibre yield, CCS yield and cane yield; the genotypes viz., 2010T-4, 2010T-103, 2010T-72 showing higher performance for fibre yield, CCS yield, theoretical yield of alcohol and cane yield; the genotypes viz., 2010T-115, 2010T-387 and 2010T-285 showing higher performance for fibre yield, CCS yield and cane yield could be suggested for promotion as varieties for respective diversified uses. The genotypes 2010T-16, 2010T-18, 2010T-82, 2010T-88, 2010T-103, 2010T-124, 2010T-153, 2010T-229, 2010T-239, 2010T-344, 2010T-347 and 2010T-416 selected by the index method could serve as potential genetic stocks in sugarcane breeding for diversified uses.
