Pakistan is facing a serious problem of increasing population therefore it is essential to increase the food production. As cultivated land resources are becoming limited the strategy for the future will have to be built around raising the productivity of existing land rather than on expanding the cultivated area as has been done in past. The most appropriate and successful ways to raise the maize hybrid productivity is through improvements in crop husbandry, better weeding, better plant configuration, use of better planting material, better soil fertility management, better timing of operations, better land use management.
