Abstract The aim of the study was to determine silage quality characters of all plant (ear, leaf and stem) of some corn inbred lines. 50 inbred lines among 400 inbred lines selected for this aim according to agronomic character in Black Sea Agricultural Research Institute, Samsun. The experimental design was a Completely Randomized Block Design with three replications. All plant dry matter yield, ADF, NDF, lignin, in vitro digestibility and row protein rate were investigated and recorded. The difference among the values obtained in all examined characters except lignin rate was statistically significant. As a result of the study 16 inbred lines determined for hybrid combinations.
