The present investigation consisted of a total of 45 hybrids along with 18 parents (15 inbred lines and 3 testers) and 2 checks. A total of 65 entries were evaluated in randomized block design with three replications over three locations (Two during Kharif-2019 and one during Rabi 2019-20) at Instructional farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur, Rajasthan (Kharif-2019 and Rabi 2019-2020) and Agriculture Research Sub Station, Vallabh Nagar, Udaipur, Rajasthan (Kharif-2019). Observations were recorded on eighteen characters for estimates of the extent of standard heterosis. The perusal of estimates of standard heterosis for de-husked cob yield and its contributing characters revealed that on pooled basis, maximum and significantly desirable economic heterosis was depicted by cross EIQ-103 x EI-2156 (13.51). The cross combinations viz., EIQ-103 × EI-2156 (13.51), EIQ-180 × EI-2156 (16.02), EIQ-103 × EI-2156(10.54), EIQ-103 × EI-2156 (17.26), EIQ-180 × EI-2156 (9.46) were identified suitable for yield and yield contributing traits.
