Abstract:

Experiment was conducted during 2014 kharif season at the Agricultural Research Station, Mudhol to investigate the response of two maize hybrids viz., NK-6240 and 900 M GOLD to five target yield levels (100, 120, 140 q ha-1, RDF and absolute control). The hybrid 900 M GOLD with target yield level of 140 q ha-1 recorded significantly higher growth parameters namely plant height, leaf area, LAD, stem girth at different phenological stages. Significantly higher grain (130.53 q ha-1) target yield level of 140 q ha-1. The increase in grain yield in hybrid 900 M GOLD with target yield level of 140 q ha-1 could be the maximum number of leaves per plant (5.20, 7.93, 11.93, 14.20. 11.20, 3.87 at 25, 35, 55, 65 and 85 DAS, respectively), leaf area (987.61, 2167.8, 5638, 7308.14, 4000.04 cm2 at 25, 35, 55, 65 and 85 DAS, respectively), LAD (13.15, 65.05, 53.94, 94.23 between 25 to 35 DAS, 35 to 55 DAS, 55 to 65 DAS and 65 to 85 DAS, respectively), stem girth (3.25, 4.50, 8.68, 8.75, 9.10 cm at 25, 35, 55, 65 and 85 DAS, respectively) compared to absolute control.
