Abstract:

Maize is highly productive crop if it is grown under optimal environmental and management conditions. Waterlogging, caused by contingent flooding, continuous rainfall and inadequate drainage or a high water table, is one of the most important constraints for maize production in Asia and many other parts of the world. In the present experiment 6 maize genotypes was studied under waterlogged condition for seven days inundation at three different growth stages viz, at the seedling stage (10 days after sowing), the knee high stage (30 days after sowing) and tasseling stage (50 days after sowing). Days to 50% anthesis (DT), Days to 50% silking (DS), number of dried leaves and number of brace roots increased but plant height ,ear height, root fresh weight, root dry weight and root length were decreased under waterlogged condition.BAU-15-102 performed better than all other genotypes under waterlogged condition.
