This study was conducted to determine some yield characters of corn cultivar in Konya province which is located in Middle Anatolian region in 2003 and 2004 years. Eight corn cultivars (Monton, Monzon, Ranchero, Ada, Montel, Progen, 35P12 and TTM 8119) were tested in randomized complete block design with four replicates. Corn yield changed from 10397 kg ha(-1) (cv Ranchero) to 12725 kg ha(-1) (cv Monton). Corn yield level in Konya was comperatible to other region in Turkey. Therefore, it can be new and large corn production area in coming years.
