Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out with variety of maize SIRI- 4527 conducted in RBD having three replications in the Central field of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Allahabad during 2015-16. The growth, yield and yield attributing traits of maize variety SIRI 4527 were studied. The growth, yield and yield attributing parameters of maize variety were studied by seeds treated with T0= control, T1= thiram @3g/kg, T2= neem oil @8ml/200g, T3= deltamethrin @2g/kg, T4= Trichoderma viride @5g/kg, T5= seed soaked in distilled water for 12 hrs. Among the all seed treatments T3 deltamethrin was identified as the best treatment for the yield attributing parameters viz. number of cobs plnt-1, number of grain row cob-1, number of grain cob-1, seed index (g), garin yield plot-1 (kg).
