Thirty sugarcane genotypes were evaluated for cane yield, sugar yield and related morphological characters. Genotypes significantly differed for all the 16 characters indicating sufficient variability in the experimental material. The characters germination % at 45 days followed by tillers at 120 days and shoots at 240 days showed high GCV and PCV. High estimates of heritability along with high genetic advance (% of mean) were observed for tillers at 120 days (000/ha) followed by germination % at 45 days, shoots at 240 days (000/ha), NMC at harvest (000/ha), and internodes/stalk at 360 days. Therefore, selection will be effective for these characters.

Keywords: Sugarcane, Genetic variability, Heritability, Genetic advance.
