Abstract:

The mean performance and analysis of variance (ANOVA) was studied in a set of thirty genotypes on maize (Zea mays L.). The experiment was conducted in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications at Genetics and Plant Breeding Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. The data were recorded  on plant height (cm), days to 50% tasselling, days to 50% silking, days to 75% brown husk , ear height (cm), leaf width (cm), tassel length (cm), cob length with husk (cm), cob length without husk (cm), cob diameter (cm),  100 seed weight (g), and grain yield per plant (g). The genotype HUZM-53 produced high grain yield per plant followed by HUZM-185, V-336, HUZM-97-1-2, V-348 and HUZM-80-1. The genotype HUZM-478, HUZM-509 and CML-163 were found to be the earliest to tasseling, silking and 75 per cent brown husk. The analysis of variance of twelve characters among 30 genotypes exhibited highly significant differences for all the traits indicating presence of significant variability among 30 genotypes.   The presence of variability in present investigation indicated the ample scope of selection for these traits.
