Sugarcane genotypes tolerant to salinity were tested for jaggery quality that seems to differ under salinity. Tolerant types were rated based on better biomass production, cane yield and other physiological parameters viz., photosynthetic rate, leaf area index etc., under higher soil salinity. Among the tolerant genotypes difference in jaggery quality was recorded with respect to net rendement value(%), colour and taste under salinity, grading tolerant genotypes as good, poor and unsuitable for jaggery preparations, when grown in saline soil.
