Abstract:

An investigation was carried on hybrid seed production in maize during rabi at Agricultural College, Bheemarayanagudi to study the different planting ratio on plant growth parameters like plant height, leaf area, leaf area index, plant girth, days to 50% silking was found non-significant difference among the planting ratio and in days to 50% tasseling (57.56 %) was found significant differences in 4:1 planting ratio and seed yield (42.06 q/ ha), cob weight (162.56 g), number of seeds per cob (617) was recorded significantly higher in 5:1planting ratio and other seed yield contributing parameters viz., cob length (16.67 cm), number of seeds per row (42.33), number of seed rows per cob (14.56) was found higher in 5:1 planting ratio and but highest 1000 seed weight (218 g) was recorded in 3:1 planting ratio as compared to the rest of planting ratios in maize inbreds like female inbred (NEI 92202B) and male inbred (HS-4).
