High genotypic coefficient of variation, heritability and genetic advance were obtained for
number of canes, stalk height and brix per cent (11th and 13th month), while low
heritability and high genetic advance were obtained for stalk height and the moderate for
the rest of the characters. The combining ability analysis indicated that gca effects were
positively significant for number of canes, stalk height, girth, weight and brix. Both the
additive and non-additive type of gene actions were found important for yield attributes
and only additive type of gene action was important for brix per cent.
Keywords: Genetic variability, combining ability, sugarcane.
