Field experiment was conducted in year 2015/2016 at the National Cereals Research Institute Badeggi, Niger State (sugarcane research field) to evaluate the performance of sixteen sugarcane genotypes. The clones were planted in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) and replicated three times. Analysis of variance showed significant differentiation among studied genotypes. The results revealed that among the evaluated genotypes ILS 708-05 was characterized by highest potential cane yield (105.54 t/ha). BD 1576-14 significantly had highest brix (24.90%) among the tested clones. Genotypes that performed better than the Check ([Standard] B 47419) in terms of cane yield, less flowers and tolerance to smut should be advance to multi-location trials.
Key words: Saccharum officinarum, hybrid clones, brix and morpho-agronomic traits.
