Authors Erkan ÖZATA, Ahmet ÖZ, Halil KAPAR
Abstract The objective of the study was to determine yield and quality traits of the 14 candidate silage hybrids and 5 checks. The experiment was established in a randomized complete block design with three replications in 2010. According to the results, days to the flowering changed between 58-64 days, plant height changed between 280-324 cm and the ratio of ear/plant, stem/plant and leaf/plant based on mean values was 40.6%, 41.7%, and 17.6, respectively. Moreover, green forage yield varied from 3340 kg/da to 6297 kg/da and dry matter yield recorded between 1104-1815 kg/da. ADF, NDF and crude protein value intervals based on weight changed between 24.1-40.9-9, 47.5-58-9 and 5.2-9-0.6 respectively. Besides, crude protein yield varied from 59 to 123.8 kg/da. Mineral matter which accounted from dry matter based on weight values the ratio of Ca, K, Mg, P was 0,17-0,35, 0,88-1,4, 0,17-0,34 and 0,11-0,21, respectively. It is concluded that from the study, 6 genotypes ( TTM 2007-145, TTM 2007-134, TTM 2007-308, TTM 2007-127, TTM 2007-106 and TTM 2007-140) were determined as promising hybrids for further evaluation.
