Muhammad Ayyaz Khan, Shahid Akbar, Khalil Ahmad and Muhammad Safdar Baloch

Abstract

The performance of six corn hybrids i.e. C-922, C-7878, C-7777, C-7877, P-3163 and R-4208 was evaluated for grain yield. The Pioneer hybrid P-3163 produced the highest plant height cob length (16.05 cm) and 1000-grains weight. The corn hybrid C-7777 produced the highest plant stand and grain yield (7.25 t ha–1) while the number of cob per plant (0.945) and number of grains per cob (518.1) were maximum in C-7877. The corn hybrid R-4208 proved to be inferior variety regarding the yield and yield components.
