A field experiment was conducted in spring planted sugarcane at Sugarcane Research Station, Buralikson, Assam, India during 2014-15 and 2015-16 to evaluate the response of promising mid-late maturing sugarcane genotypes under three levels of fertilizers. Three mid-late maturing promising genotypes, viz. CoBln 14504, CoBln 14505, CoBln 14506 along with a recommended variety CoBln 94063 as check were tested under three levels of NPK fertilizers i.e. 75% RD of NPK, 100%RD of NPK and 125% RD of NPK (135:70:60). Result revealed that among the tested genotypes, CoBln 14505 recorded significantly the higher cane yield (66.50t/ha), NMC (68.10 thousand/ha) over the check as well as other two genotypes. In case of fertilizer, 125% recommended dose of NPK recorded significantly higher cane yield (62.91 t/ha) than the both 75% and 100% recommended dose of NPK.
