NCLB is a seasonal maize crop disease which affected maize leaf under humid environment but in some cases QPM hybrid showed resistance to this disease. Author was selected 5 QPM and 6 non QPM inbred line from the screening and developed 30 crosses of QPM hybrid. These crosses were showing in two different environments (Irrigated and Rain-fed) along with two checks (Malviya Makka Hybrid 2 and local hybrid). After days to 50% tasseling NCLB observation was performed. QPM hybrid crosses showed better growth and development but checks infected to NCLB at 50% tasseling and silking which provide less amount of food supplements due to losses major amount of chlorophyll content.
