Changing climatic scenario arise the problem of varietal adaptation. A field trail was conducted to evaluate eight different genotypes at Agricultural research Institute (ARI) Tarnab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan during summer 2015-16. Maize genotypes Azam, Iqbal, 8003-4*66211, Babar, Pop-2009, Jalal, Pahari, and Sarhad White were tested in randomized complete block design replicated three times. Results of the trail showed that plant-height (cm), ear plant-1, single ear weight, 1000-grain weight, grain yield, biological yield and harvest index were higher with maize genotype 80003-4*66211, while ASI was recorded similar for all genotypes. Thus it is suggested that the genotypes 80003-4*66211 may be preferred for general cultivation under existing environmental conditions.
