The study was conducted to demonstrate the performance of four varieties of glutinous corn during wet season in the province of Cagayan, in terms of agronomic and economic characteristics. Specifically, it aimed to find out the best suited corn variety under CSU Lal-lo condition during wet season in terms of: (a) plant height (cm); (b) length of corn ear (cm); (c) rows per ear; (d) ear diameter; (e) weight of 1000 kernels dried and fresh (g); (f) yield per plot (kg) and cost and return analysis. The treatments were: T1 (Lagkitan), T2 (Nutri Lyt), T3 (Batik) and T4 (Purple gem). These were randomly allocated in the different plots following the Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). The result of the study did not show significant difference in terms of plant height (cm) at 30 days, plant height (cm) at 60 days, length (cm) of corn ear, weight (g) of 1000 dried kernels, weight (g) of 1000 fresh kernels and yield (kg) per plot. However, it showed significant difference in terms of number of row per ear and ear diameter. Results further shows that purple gem produced the highest number of rows per ear and widest ear diameter. In terms of ROI, all the treatments showed positive ROI but the highest was gained by Treatment 4 (purple gem) with 297. 29%.
