The genotype × environment interaction in 10 diverse parents and 45 F1s of winter maize under 4 variable environments (early and late sowing; and with or without moisture stress) was evaluated in Bihar, India. Sowing was done on 2 November (early) and 2 December 2000 (late). Moisture stress was created by reducing the number of irrigations to one, which was supplied at knee-height stage. Twelve yield parameters were studied: anthesis-silking interval, tassel condensation, tassel vigour index, plant height, ear height, effective ear length, ear girth, grain filling percentage, kernel row number/ear, 500-grain weight, harvest index and grain yield. Significant interaction was observed due to genotype × sowing date × moisture regime for tassel condensation, ear height, effective ear length, 500-grain weight and grain yield. The following crosses were identified as suitable for early and late sowing under stressed and non-stress moisture conditions: G15C12 MH 148U-1-1-1-6-3-BB × CM 117, Pop 27-S4-4U-1-3 × Pop 147 (EEY DMR) S1-117-3 and EEY DMR S1-3-1-1-2-3 × CML 117. The following responded better than the others to late sowing and moisture stress: G15C12MH 148U-1-1-1-6-3-B8 × Pop 27-S4-4U-1-3 and Pop 27-S4-4U-1-3 × CML 117.
