Abstract

At the Crop Research Farm (CRF), Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (UP), a field experiment was carried out in the Kharif season of 2022 to examine the "Evaluation of Maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids under agro-climatic conditions of Prayagraj, U.P." Ten hybids make up the course of treatment. Ten treatments were reproduced three times, and the experiment was set up using a randomised block design. Compared to other hybrids, hybrid M-400 had the largest plant height (196.65 cm), dry weight (157.25 g/plant), number of cobs / plant (2.65), cob length (19.87 cm), number of grains / row (31.73/row), seed yield (8.64 t/ha), stover output (19.45 t/ha), and biological yield (28.09 t/ha).

Keywords: Hybrid maize, yield, varietal response kharif, Zea mays L
