A promising midlate maturing sugarcane variety, CoBln 04174 was developed at Sugarcane Research Station, Buralikson, Assam from the general collection of C 79180 through clonal selection. The variety was tested in the AICRP trial under different discipline and on farm trials of different agro climatic zones of Assam.  The variety CoBln 04174 recorded an average cane  yield of 65.54t/ha and sugar yield of 7.63 t/ha with an improvement of  4.58%  for cane yield and 3.52% CCS yield over the best standard CoSe 92423 across the centres in two plant crop and one ratoon crop.  Besides this, the variety CoBln 04174 recorded average cane yield of 70.4 t/ha which is 22.26% higher over the best standard CoP 9301 (57.58t/ha) in the trials conducted at Sugarcane Research Station, Buralikson. The variety was moderately susceptible to red rot but moderately resistant to borer insect of sugarcane. The variety CoBln 04174 has been identified for release in North Eastern Zone.


Cane yield Midlate Ratoon Spring Sugarcane.
