Maize hybrid productivity and grain quality in conditions of the Cis-Ural forest-steppe

Federal state budgetary educational institution of higher education, Bashkir state agrarian university, Ufa, Republic of Bashkortostan, Russian Federation

This study (2016–2017) was conducted to identify highly productive maize hybrids for the conditions of the Bashkortostan Republic. Maize growth, yield and grain quality was examined on different hybrids that gave 3.79–5.55 t/ha of maize. Nur and Baikal hybrids showed the best grain quality indicators on the starch content being 61.7% and 60.8%, respectively. From mid-early hybrids Newton, Mashuk 220 MV and Mashuk 250 SV are recommended for silage production.
