Abstract

Rainfed planting season is traditional planting method to cultivated crops. Prediction from rainfall pattern and grow crop without installation of irrigation system, the potential of grain corn yield under small experimental plot exceeds 6 t/ha.  High intensity of rainfall during the monsoon season is advantages for cultivation grain corn without irrigation system in Malaysia. Good cultural practice and with properly design of water management system allow grain yield to the potential level.
