      <Abstract>Phule Madhu (QMHSC-1182), a single cross sweet corn hybrid from public sector in Maharashtra is developed from the cross between QMISC-1407 x QMISC-1408 through hybridization method. It is high yielding, yellow flint grain at green cob stage and orange yellow shrunken at maturity, moderately resistant to Turcicum leaf blight, Maydis leaf blight, Charcoal rot and Fusarium stalk rot and resistant to Stem borer (Chilo partellus Sw.) in field condition. It is sweet in taste having brix reading 14.89 percent. The green cobs in dough stage are ready to harvest within 80-85 days and total maturity of the crop takes about 95-100 days. In various states and varietal trials, the sweet corn hybrid QMHSC-1182 consistently recorded best performance. The sweet corn hybrid QMHSC-1182 recorded 12864 Kg ha-1 green cob yield with husk, which was 42.70 percent higher than checks Madhuri (9015 Kg ha-1), 64.97 percent higher than Priya (7798 Kg ha-1) and 45.01 percent higher than WOSC (8871 Kg ha-1). It is superior for green fodder yield over the check Madhuri and Priya. The sweet corn hybrid is released under the name ‘Phulen Madhu’ for sweet corn growing area of Maharashtra in 2016.</Abstract>
