A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2016-2017 on silty loam soils at Agronomy Research Farm, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumargunj), Faizabad (U.P.) to study the “Yield Attributes of Rabi Maize as Influenced by planting geometry and Moisture regimes”. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with four planting geometries viz., 60× 10 cm, 60 × 15 cm, 60 × 20 cm, 60 × 25 cm and four moisture regimes viz., 0.6 IW/CPE ratio, 0.9 IW/CPE ratio, 1.2 IW/CPE ratio, 0.9 IW/CPE ratio up to silking and 1.2 IW/CPE ratio for rest of the crop season which were replicated thrice. Results showed that higher Length of cob, No of grain rows per cob, No of grains per row, No of grains per cob, weight of cob, weight of grains per cob, Girth of cob, Test weight, shelling percentage, grain yield and stover yield was found in 60 × 25 cm spacing and 1.2 IW/CPE ratio.Interactive effect of planting geometry and moisture regimes on yield attributes under study were found to be non-significant.

Keywords: Rabi maize, Planting geometry, IW/CPE ratio, Moisture regimes, yield attributes
