Abstract This study was conducted in Kozçeşme township of Biga town of Çanakkale province in 2008 cropping year. In the study, yellow, red and white grain popcorn genotypes were used as meterial. The trial conducted in a randomized complete block design with three replications. The genotypes used in the research were not hybrid, they were local populations of Kozçeşme township. In the research, the tassel flowering period (days), ear silk period (days), plant height (cm) firs ear height (cm), stem diameter (mm), the number of ear per plant (unit/plant), ear length (cm), row number of per ear (unit), grain number of per ear row (unit), the cop weight (g) the grain weight of per ear (g), thousand grain weight (g) ear diameter (mm), grain ratio (%), grain yield (kg/da) were investigated. As a result of this research, it was determined that Yellow popcorn genotyp was later (to growing) than the other gonotypes and it had highest grain yield (1384 kg/da) than white and red popcorn genotypes that those had 1290 kg/da and 1069 kg/da grain yield respectively.
Keywords popcorn, local varieties, yield.
