  A set of 28 sub-tropical CIMMYT maize germplasm, along with 2 local checks were evaluated at experimental farm of Cereal Crops Research Institute, Pirsabak, Nowshera, NWFP Pakistan during Kharif growing season of year 2000 for desirable alleles, to be incorporated in indigenous maize breeding programme. CIMMYT entry no. 12 significantly out yielded (6.5 tons ha-1) all entries, had significantly lowest (58 days) days for mid silking and plant height (187.7 cm) remained under desirable range with cob placement (98.6 cm) at favorable height with lodging frequencies at permissible limits is recommended for induction in indigenous maize breeding program. CIMMYT entries no. 21 and 6 also had significantly highest grain yields (6.4 and 5.9 tons ha-1) with other factors significantly higher or ad-par with checks are also recommended for source of desirable alleles for improvement of elite maize populations.

  Establishment of optimum plant population is an important factor for increasing grain and stover yield in corn (Zea mays L.). The effect of varying times of thinning on the stover and grain yield of maize was investigated in a replicated field experiment, using an open pollinated maize variety Azam, at farmer=s field at Swat, during summer, 2001. Significant differences were observed among the four thinning treatments for grain and stover yield. The grain and stover yield were found to have decreased as thinning was delayed. Yield components such as number of ears, ear length, number of grains per ear row, ear diameter and 100 kernel weight were significantly affected by late thinning. In vegetative phase, LAI (leaf area index) was the only character, which exhibited significant differences among thinning treatments. The results suggested that thinning of maize crop as early as seedling emergence is important for increasing yield.
