Predictive models for the maize crop (<em>Zea maize </em>L.) of Chhattisgarh plain and its constituent districts have been made. Models have been fitted for the area, productivity and production of the crop separately for above region. Based on these models prediction of area productivity and production of maize have been made year wise between 1998-99 to 2013-14. The partial compound growth rates of the area, production and productivity of the crop have been also estimated and discussed. Periodic effect of five years as well as annual effects was found to be working in most of the districts/region based on a postulated and estimated production function of area and productivity. It was found that the major influencing factor on the production of maize was its area and productivity for different districts. This influence of area and productivity was around 7 and 22 percent for the Chhattisgarh plain respectively.
