This study was conducted to have basic information about the genetic nature of variation present in the clonal population of sugarcane. For this mean, range, genotypic coefficient of variation, phenotypic coefficient of variation, broad sense heritability and genetic advance was calculated using 144 sugarcane clones along with five standards in augmented block design. All the clones were differed significantly for all the 13 traits indicating that sufficient amount of variability was present in the experimental material. Most of the traits recorded a very wide range which indicates the level of variation present in the population. Higher GCV and PCV values were observed for traits namely no of millable canes, Cane yield and CCS yield whereas moderate values were observed for No of tillers, Single cane weight, and CCS%. Higher broad sense heritability and GAM estimates were recorded for no of tillers, no of millable canes, single cane weight, cane yield and CCS yield. The narrow difference between GCV and PCV values indicates that these traits were less influenced by the environment. Hence, improvement through direct selection could be possible for these traits.

Keywords: Saccharum officinarum, GCV, PCV, Heritability in broad sense, Genetic advance as percent mean
