ABSTRACT

Drought contributes to reduced maize production in Nepal especially in mid hill region. To identify the drought tolerant high yielding maize genotypes, one hundred four genotypes were evaluated at mid hill districts (Doti, Surkhet and Dailekh) in 2011 summer. All the genotypes were tested in a randomized complete block design with three replication. The grain yield was highly significant for genotypes, location but non significant for G × L interaction. The genotypes namely Manakamana-4, Upahar and TLBRS SO7F16 produced high yield under drought condition.
