The present study aimed to screen out different maize cultivars against maize shootfly and red pumpkin beetle at Peshawar was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm (ARF), The University of Agriculture, Peshawar (UAP), Pakistan during 2015. Seven maize cultivars, namely Azam, Jalal, Babar, Pahari, Iqbal, Climax 3055 and Climax 30M62 were tested. The overall mean density of maize shootfly and red pumpkin beetle were found statistically non-significant on the seven tested maize cultivars. However, highest overall mean density of shoot fly was recorded (0.46 flies plant-1) each on Babar, Pahari and Iqbal while lower (0.41 flies plant-1) on Climax 3055, Climax 30M62 and Jalal while Red pumpkin beetle overall mean density was found maximum of 1.10 beetles plant-1 on Pahari while lower of 0.98 beetles plant-1 on C-3055. On the basis of lower incidence of insect pests, all of the seven tested maize cultivars are recommended for cultivation during spring season at Peshawar.
