Abstract:

The study was conducted to evaluate the performance of 100 maize hybrids and to assess the association between yield and yield component traits of maize hybrids. The Experiment was carried out in randomized complete block designs (RCBD) with three replications in 2017 main cropping season. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences between hybrids for all measured parameters. The highest and lowest grain yield were recorded for VH132059 (11.11ton/ha) and VH141651 (6.06 ton/ha) respectively. Among the Hybrids VH15471 and VH15884 were early maturing varieties, while VH11153 and VH112944 are late maturing hybrids. Higher phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) and Genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) were recorded for the traits plant aspect, ear aspect, number of cobs per plant and grain yield. High heritability and high genetic advance were recorded for plant height, number of grain per row and cob length VH132059 and VH11128 are good performed hybrids.
