In field trials in 1987-88 at Pantnagar, Uttar Pradesh, sugarcane cv. Co 1148, CoS 802, CoS 767 and CoS 7918 were planted in the middle of Feb., Mar., Apr. or May. Cane yield decreased from 86.9 to 38.2 t/ha with delay in planting date and was highest in cv. CoS 7918 (69.5 t) and lowest in CoS 767 (57.9 t). Brix percentage, sucrose percentage, purity coefficient, available sugar and commercial cane sugar yield decreased with delay in planting date.
