The present study was conducted in research farm of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology & Sciences, Allahabad (U.P) during Kharif 2017 to investigate the effectiveness various levels of NPK fertilizers, their combinations ( T1 )   26g Urea: 42g DAP :20g MOP / 2 m2  ( T2 ),  52g Urea: 84g DAP :40 g MOP/ 2 m2  ( T3  ), 78g Urea: 126 g DAP :60g MOP / 2 m2 and delayed sowing on growth and yield characters of three varieties of maize. The three varieties (Kaveri 3110 (V1), Deluxe (V2), Ganga-2 (V3). each were treated with different levels of fertilizers (Urea - 26 g,52g and 78 g) which supplies nitrogen, (DAP- 42g,84g,124g) which supplies nitrogen and phosphorous, (MOP- 20g,40g,60g) which supplies potassium. The experimental design was factorial Randomized Block Design (Factorial RBD) with four replications. The results showed that the treatment combinations V­­­­­­­2­T­­2 yielded maximum in all the characters followed by (V­­­­­­­­­1T­­2) treatment in leaf width, cob length, no of rows/cob, no of grains /row, no of seeds/cob (V­­­­­­­­­3T­­1) in plant height, no of cobs per plant (V­­­­­­­­­3T­­2) in tassel length and leaf length (V­­­­­­­­­2T­­3) in cob diameter and minimum is recorded in control (T0)
