Heterotic response of 50 crosses from 10 lines x 5 testers mating design was worked
out over mid parent, better parent and best check for the disease maydis leaf blight
and grain yield in maize. Only eight crosses showed standard heterosis for grain
yield and disease resistance over the best check Pratap for disease resistance and
23 crosses showed standard heterosis over the best check KH 510. Heterotic response
obtained over better parents were more realistic.
Keywords: Maize, heterosis, Maydis leaf blight, yield.
