The investigation was designed to explore the possibility
of identifying some lines/crosses of maize (Zea mays L.)
suitable to germinate and strive well under moisture stress
conditions. Ten crosses showed high field emergence.
Few crosses also depicted high seed vigour. High seed
density was directly associated with high field emergence.
The parents performing better for different seed traits and
tests also contributed for better field emergence in the
