Abstract

Ten sugarcane varieties of early and late maturing types were assessed for post harvest losses (0-120 h) and reduction in cane weight from February through June. The results revealed that the fibrous varieties of late maturing group such as CoSe 92423, CoS 97261 and CoS 8432 showed less reduction in cane weight and higher reduction in pol % whereas the less fibrous type of early maturing group like CoS 95255, CoS 96268 and CoS 8436 showed less reduction in pol % and higher loss in cane weight.
