Abstract

Correlation coefficient analysis between important qualitative and quantitative characters and
redrot disease incidence among seven clones of inter varietal crosses with three standards revealed
higher genotypic correlations. But SMT Brix, sucrose % and CCS % showed significant negative
correlation and juice recovery % and cane length showed positive correlation. It revealed that to
develop stable redrot resistant high yielding sugarcane cultivars/varieties, selection on the basis of
above traits will not give fruitful results. Therefore, genetic transformation through biotechnological
intervention may be opted.
