A field experiment was conducted to identify best sowing methodology for different maize hybrids in two contrasting environments i.e. spring and kharif, 2017 at Lovely Professional University, Phagwara. In this experiment three factors, Season, varieties and flat/ridges sowing technique were studied as main, sub and sub-sub factors in split plot design with three replications and six popular hybrids. The data was recorded for Plant height, cob height (cm), cob length (cm), Cob breadth (cm), Number of cobs/plot, Grain yield, cob weight/plot, Stubble weight, Harvest index%. Relatively high magnitude of variation was observed for most of character from spring and kharif season. Among ridge/flat sowing methodology, it was found ridge sowing is better performed as compared to flat sowing in both seasons and most of hybrids (DKC9108 and Pioneer 1844). Similarly, DKC 9108 and Pioneer 1844 performed better in interactions of hybrids and sowing on different methods in term grain yield. Looking for both seasons, kharif season performed superior as compared spring season.
