Abstract:

Seven early clones of sugarcane were evaluated in a randomized block design with three replications which were planted in plots at Agricultural Research Station (ARS), Perumallapalle, Tirupati, during cropping season 2022-23, so as to evaluate the variation and association between the cane yield and its components and to estimate the direct and indirect effects on cane yield. In this study Cane length, NMC, SCW, brix, Sucrose, CCS% and CCS yield showed positive and significant association with cane yield and also among them. Path analysis revealed that the characters viz., NMC and SCW exhibited high positive direct effects on cane yield in early trial. Direct selection of above characters would be helpful for the improvement of cane yield.
