A field experiment was conducted during 2002 at CCS University, Meerut to study the effect of environmental factors and seasons on plant growth, flowering, Synchronization and seed yield in Six inbreds/OPVs: CM135, CM136, CM137, CM138, CM500, CM600 and two single crosses: CM202xCM111 and CM400xCM300 were evaluated for five characters namely, plant height, Number of leaves per plant, tassel and silk emergence, duration of anthesis, duration of silking and seed yield. The result revealed that plant height, number of leaves was better in kharif than in spring-summer season. Seed yield and duration of anthesis and silking maximum in spring-summer than in kharif season. Parents (CM135, CM136, CM137 and CM138) and the single crosses (CM202xCM111 and CM400xCM300) showed taken duration of anthesis and silking highly in both the seasons. Single crosses (CM202xCM111 and CM400xCM300) give highest yield while parental lines CM600 and CM500 had lowest seed yield.
