The combining ability of 27 maize population composed of 14 germplasm introduced from CIMMYT and 13 domestic cultivars for 14 biometric traits was determined in a field experiment conducted in Sichuan, China in 2001-02. The general combining ability for yield of the germplasm from CIMMYT was higher compared to the domestic population. The CIMMYT materials were taller and had high ear position compared to the domestic cultivars.
