Comparative Evaluation of Newly Developed Maize Population for Fodder Purposes

Syed Sadaqat Mehdi and Muhammad Ahsan


Synthetic (newly developed) maize population had significantly more number of leaves per plant than Tall and Mixture populations. It had also significantly greater plant height than dwarf, F1 hybrid and Mixture. This population was also found significantly high green fodder yielding than Tall, Medium, Dwarf, F1 hybrid and Mixture. Newly developed population had low magnitude of coefficient of variation for leaves per plant, plant height and green fodder yield than all other populations. It is therefore suggested on the basis of these results that Synthetic (newly developed) maize population may be more useful while growing for green fodder yield.
