Abstract

Maize is the third most important cereal crop after wheat and rice and is considered one of the most versatile emerging crop having wider adaptability under varied agro-climatic conditions. During 2015- 16, globally maize was cultivated on an area of 178 million ha in about 160 countries with a total production of 1037 million tons (Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA, 2016). In India, the crop was grown on 9.2 million ha with a total production of 26.15 million metric tons and an average yield of 3340 kg/ha. In Telangana state, it covers an area of 0.69 million hectares with a production of 2.31 million tonnes and productivity of 3340 kg ha-1 (India Stat, 2015).
