A trial was conducted during Kharif 2022 to evaluate the performance of ten sweet corn entries against two checks (CMVL sweet corn 1 and Misthi) at CCS HAU Regional Research Station, Karnal. Ten sweet corn genotypes sown in Randomized Block Design (RBD) in a plot size of 8.4 m2 (four rows of 3.5 m with row to row spacing 0.6 m) with three replications. Observations was recorded on traits namely days to 50% anthesis, days to 50% silking, ear number/ha, ear height (cm), plant height (cm), green cob yield with husk (kg/ha), green cob yield without husk (kg/ha), fodder yield (kg/ha) and total soluble solutes (%). The genotype CSCH 16027 (14,442 kg/ha) reported maximum green cob yield with husk, CSCH 16027 (11526 kg/ha) genotype recorded second highest green cob yield without husk, genotype MSCH 2101 (29604 kg/ha) reported maximum forage yield with >12 percent heterosis over the best check and genotype CSCH 16027 was found to be at par with best check in terms of green cob yield without husk and also showed superiority in terms of forage yield against the best check.
Key words: Sweet corn, green cob yield, heterosis and forage yield
