Abstract: The objective of this field experiment was to assess the development, productivity attributes, and overall effectiveness of various maize varieties when grown in a real-world agricultural setting. The research design involved three replications in a randomized block arrangement. We assessed five maize cultivars: T1- JM218, T2- JM215, T3- PRMH – 306, T4- JM – 8, T5- JM – 13, and T6- control. Among these varieties, PRMH-306 (referred to as V3-PRMH-306) consistently demonstrated superior performance across various parameters when compared to the other cultivars. The findings revealed that planting the PRMH-306 variety resulted in significantly greater growth indicators, including plant height, dry matter accumulation per plant, and the number of leaves per plant. Moreover, it exhibited excellent yield characteristics such as cobs per plant, seeds per cob, 100-grain weight, cob length, girth of cob, rows per cob, and grains per row. Notably, PRMH-306 also outperformed the control in terms of grain yield, Net monetary return (NMR), and Benefit-to-Cost (B:C) ratio. In summary, the PRMH-306 maize variety displayed outstanding performance in both grain and stover yield. Its grain yield, NMR, and B:C ratio were notably higher than those of the other maize cultivars under examination. The PRMH-306 variety emerged as the most economically advantageous choice, delivering the highest net financial returns (Rs. 54,909 per hectare) and a favourable B:C ratio of 2.81.
