Abstract


In sweet sorghum genotypes, rates of photosynthesis and transpiration , fresh cane weight differed significantly. The high yielding genotypes possessed higher rate of photosynthesis and transpiration. Juice parameters such as extraction percentage, brix, non-reducing sugars, total sugars and enzyme activity also differed among the genotypes. Fresh cane weight and brix were more in high yielding genotypes. There was a positive correlation between fresh cane weight and total sugars, non-reducing sugars and invertase enzyme activity. Photosynthesis rate had positive correlation with transpiration.
