Trial was led at College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat, India during rabi season of the years 2019-20 and 2020-21 to study the association of yield attributing traits in maize under INM treatments. Number of cobs per plant sowing highly significant positive correlation with the all-other traits under evaluation. Number of cobs per plant and Number of seeds per cob in the year 2019-20 showing positive significant genotypic correlation with the grain yield per plant whereas phenotypic correlation is non-significant. Evaluation of the maize with the same treatments for the two subsequent years and getting same result, suggesting efficacy of the experimental selection and validating the results. This study will provide early yield prediction by considering effect of INM treatments on yield attributes.
