EVALUATION OF GRAIN YIELD AND OF SOME YIELD TRAITS AT DIFFERENT FOREIGN CORN HYBRIDS CULTIVATED ÎN CENTRAL PART OF OLTENIA

RADU VALERIU LUCIAN, BONEA DORINA

Abstract


The field experiment was conducted during growing season of corn (2019) at the Agricultural Research and Development Station Şimnic - Craiova.  This study emphasized on screening different foreign corn hybrids under agro-climatic conditions of Oltenia and to know the adaptability of these hybrids. Twelve foreign corn hybrids (6 of French and 6 of German origin) were evaluated. The yield traits and grain yield were recorded and statistically analysed for comparison amongst the hybrids. The study showed that the corn hybrids within the two sets of different origin (but not between the two sets) were significantly different for all traits analyzed, except for the length of the cob. The highest grain yields among hybrids of French origin were recorded by: ES INVENTIVE (60.74 q/ha) and ES FARADAY (60.02 q/ha) and the highest grain yields among hybrids of German origin were recorded by: KASHMIR (63.79 q/ha), KARPATIS (63.64 q/ha) and BELLAVISTA KXB 643 (63.04 q/ha).
