Abstract:

The investigation was carried during Kharif season of 2018-19 at the Seed Breeding Farm, Department of Genetics & Plant Breeding and College of Agriculture, JNKVV, Jabalpur (MP), included 31 maize genotypes along with checks (African tall and J-1006) were planted in Randomized Completely Block Design (RCBD) and seventeen observations under study viz., days to 50 per cent tasseling, days to 50 per cent silking, plant height, number of leaves per plant, leaf area, stem girth, inter nodal length, leaf stem ratio, brix’s value, crude protein yield per plant , crude protein yield per plant per day, dry matter yield per plant per day, green fodder yield per plant per day, dry matter yield per plant, green fodder yield per plant. Correlation and path coefficient analysis reveal that stem girth, green fodder yield per plant per day, dry matter yield per plant per day and crude protein yield per plant per day has significant correlation and higher direct effect. This indicated that these characters will enhance the effectiveness of selection for higher fodder yield in fodder Maize.
