Simultaneous selection and stability under late planted commercial cane sugar

Published on

The modified form of selection index method utilizing
simultaneous selection for yield (mean performance) and
stability, Kang's rank sum method and Eberhart and
Russell method were applied to a set of twenty sugarcane
(Saccharum sp.) genotypes under late planted condition.
The yield stability index method utilizing both stability
variance statistic and mean performance of genotypes
was found to be better than the Kan!l's rank sum method.
The genotypes Colk 9411, Colk 9618, Colk 9606 and
Colk 9216 were high yielding and stable with respect to
CCS (tlha).
