Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2011 to generate the ground truth data of maize crop at Crop Research Station Bahraich of N.D.U.A&T, Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) as to assess the “Evaluation of the DSSAT Crop Growth Model with Maize (Zea mays L.) Cultivars Validated for NEPZ Region of Eastern U.P.” The experiment was conducted in Split Plot Design. The treatment comprised of three dates of sowing viz. 20th June (D1), 30th June (D2) and 10th July 2011 (D3) kept as main plot with three varieties viz. Seed Tech -940 (V1), ProAgro-4212 (V2) and HQPM-1 (V3) kept as sub plot. The historical field crop data of year 2009 and 2010 were used for calibration and validation in addition to field crop data of year 2011. The performance of model tested using SD and RMSE. Result reveal that The simulated grain yield and phenological events were close to observed values in timely sown crop suggested that the simulated yield were well within the accepted limits, therefore the model can be used for predicting maize yield and days taken to phenological stages in north eastern U.P.
