HERITABILITY OF SOME CHARACTERS IN SUGARCANE

Published on

HERITABILITY estimates in the "broad sense" have been worked out for six
characters, the extent and speed of germination, height, tiller number, number of
green leaves and leaf breadth which may be of importance in sugarcane breeding.
Expected genetic advance for these characters has also been studied. Extent
of germination determines the uniformity of the stand, while the other characters
are related to the vigour of the plant. Importance of heritability estimates and
expected genetic advance in placing varietal improvement on rational basis is
well appreciated.
