Yield and yield components of five synthetic maize cultivars (EV-3001, Jalal, Kisan, Azam and Pahari) were studied at Chilas Agriculture Farm, district Diamer, Northern Areas, Pakistan during 2005. Cultivars differed significantly for all parameters. Cultivars Jalal, EV-3001 and Kisan produced the tallest plants (278.6, 270.5 and 265.7 cm) whereas, check variety Pahari produced the shortest plants (168.8 cm). The highest yield (1.803 t/ha) was harvested in maize cultivar EV-3001 which was at par with cultivars Jalal and Azam. Check variety produced the lowest yield (1.15 t/ha). The effect of cultivars on stalk yield also significantly differed and check variety produced the lowest stalk yield (1.320 t/ha). Other cultivars were at par for stalk yield. On the basis of this study cultivars Jalal and Azam are recommended for general cultivation in double cropping zones in district Diamer.
