This study was carried out at Crop Research Center Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut during kharif 2014. The experiment comprised of fifteen maize cultivars viz. Pmh-117, Buland, Parkash, Bio-9637, Seedtech-2324, Hqpm-7, Bio-9681, Hybrid maize gs-802, Sujata, Dhs-42 hybrid, African tall, Nmh-920, Bharat kaveri, Manjira-1 and Malika nmh-920. Among all cultivars Pmh-117, Buland and Parkash cultivars recorded moderately resistant. Bio-9637, Seedtech-2324, Hqpm-7, Bio-9681 and Hybrid maize gs-802 cultivars recorded moderately susceptible. Cultivars Sujata, Dhs-42 hybrid, African tall and Nmh-920 recorded susceptible. Maximum (45.92) per cent infestation recorded in Hybrid madhuri. Dead hearts formation recorded in screening experiment after thirty and forty five days of sowing. Minimum dead heart formation recorded in Buland after forty five days of sowing followed by Pmh-117, Bio-9637, Hqpm-7, Seedtech-2324 and Hybrid maize gs-802, respectively. Maximum dead hearts formation recorded in Hybrid madhuri. Leaf injury rating recorded in thirty and forty days after sowing. Minimum leaf injury rating recorded in Pmh-117 with 3.33 per cent of infestation and maximum leaf injury rating recorded in Hybrid madhuri with 8.00 per cent of infestation after forty five days of sowing.

Keywords: Maize, Stem borer, Cultivars, Natural field.
