The field experiment was conducted at Research farm of Department of Agricultural Meteorology, college of Agriculture, Parbhani during kharif 2017 to study the performance of maize hybrids (Zea mays L.) under different sowing windows. The experiment comprised of five dates i.e. 25th SMW, 26th SMW, 27th SMW, 28th SMW and 29th SMW as main plot treatment with two maize hybrid viz. H1 (PIONEER-3501) and H2 (MONSANTO-9126) as sub plot treatments and replicated thrice. Factorial Randomized Block Design, gross and net plot sizes were 6.0 x 5.0 m2 and 4.8 x 4.2 m2, respectively with spacing of 60 x 30 cm. The results revealed that among the five different dates of sowing. D1-25th SMW sowing and hybrid H1 (PIONEER-3501) resulted in crp sown with higher growth and yield parameters significantly i.e. Plant height, functional leaves, days to 50% tasseling, days to 50% silking, Number of cob per plant, length of cob, diameter of cob, Number of grain per cob and test weight also first date of sowing D1-25th SMW significantly highest grain yield (4969 kg/ha) followed by D2 (4816 kg/ha), D3 (4627 kg/ha) D4 (4424 kg/ha) and D5(4131 kg/ha) and among hybrid H1 (PIONEER-3501) (4609 kg/ha) and H2 (MONSANTO-9126) (4578 kg/ha) respectively.
