ABSTRACT

 

Local maize landraces are generally less yielders. Farmers have been cultivating and consuming local maize available in their areas due to specific color and taste of the grains. Only a few attempts were made by the researchers to study the nutritional status in north eastern maize, there was a lot of scope to study the local maize germplasm of the north eastern region for various nutritional compositions further. Considering the above, the following research study was undertaken. The six germplasm and their corresponding S1 progenies along with check were analyzed for estimation of the nutritional traits viz., crude protein, crude fat, carbohydrate, crude fiber, ash, iron and zinc. The mean value for a replicate for each entry in respect of a trait was used for analysis of data in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with two replications. Analysis of variance reveals that the estimates of mean square due to germplasm were significant to highly significant for the traits viz., iron (mg /100 g), zinc (mg /100 g), moisture content (%), crude protein (%), crude fat (%), carbohydrate plus crude fiber (%) and ash (%) indicating sufficient variation among the thirteen entries tested. The result showed ARY2 exhibited high carbohydrate content, crude protein and zinc content.

Keywords    Maize, Local germplasm, Nutitional analysis, North east.
