Pooled analysis for correlation coefficient revealed that cane yield was found to be highly significant and positive correlation with CCS (t/ha) followed by stalk weight, NMC at harvest, fiber (%) cane and internodes per stalk at both genotypic and phenotypic levels indicating that these attributes were mainly influencing the cane yield in sugarcane. While, CCS (t/ha) had highly significant and positive correlation with almost all the characters except stalk height and diameter, juice purity (%). These yield contributing characters also possessed highly significant and positive association among themselves. Path coefficient analysis indicated that stalk weight had the highest positive direct effect but it had positive highly significant correlation with cane yield, while highest positive indirect effect on cane yield by stalk weight via CCS % followed by tillers at 120 days, sucrose % juice and germination % at 45 days.

Key words: Correlation, Path analysis, Sugarcane.
