The global area, production and productivityof maize was registered the positive significant growth rate of 2.37, 3.32 and 1.01 per centsrespectively, during 2004-05 to 2013-14. It indicatesthat the area under maize in Karnataka was increasing at an annual growth rate of 7.08 per cent as compared to national growth rate of 2.67per cent during 1999-2014, respectively.  The production trend in Karnataka was also showing increasing trend as the growth rate was registeredat 7.72 per cent as compared to all India level (5.63 %) during 1999-2014. However, the productivity of maize was highest (3.5 tonnes per ha) in Karnataka compared to the national average (2.5 metric tonnes per ha). It was interesting to note that the area, production and productivity during 1999-2014 periods forIndia and Karnataka were found significant at five per cent level, except the productivity of Karnataka which was found non-significant.The area under maize among the major states, Tamil Nadu had registered the growth rate of 9.78 per cent followed by Maharashtra (9.34 %), Karnataka (7.08 %) and Andhra Pradesh (4.95 %) respectively, during the period 1999-2014. Finally the results revealed that the area, production and productivity of maize in NEK region was increased at a growth rate of 8.59, 6.77 and 10.13 per cent respectively during 1998-2014.
