Abstract:
The experimental results revealed that local cultivar Hazara-Double emerged in 6 days whereas hybrid PAC-52 took maximum number of days. The Hazara-Double was the earliest one in reaching tasseling (52 days) but the hybrid PAC-9715 and C-501 took 61 days to tasseling. The hybrid PAC-52 silked earlier taking 55 days whereas C-501 completed silking process in 65 days. At harvest minimum grain moisture content was observed in hybrid PAC-52 (23.5) when compared to PAC-9715 (31.4) and C-501 (32%). Regarding grain yield, Hazara Double was lowest (5.3 t ha -1 whereas premium brand produced maximum grain yield (9 t ha -1) when compared to long duration hybrid PAC-9715 (8.6 t ha -1).
