This study was conducted in Van, located in Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey, in 2000 and 2001 year to determine some yield characters of grain corn cultivars. In the experiment eleven (C-955, DK-626, Antbey, LG-60, Flash, LG-55, TTM-8119, Vero, TTM-813, Ant-90 and Akp nar) corn cultivars were used and experimental design was Randomized Complete Block. Corn cultivars had the lowest 711.2 kg da-1 and the highest 1062.5 kg da-1 grain yield. DK-626 (1062.5 kg da-1), LG-55 (1027.4 kg da-1) and C-955 (1005.4 kg da-1) cultivars produced the highest grain yield had better performance while TTM-8119 and Vero cultivars having the lowest grain yield. Grain yield of corn cultivars in van were found sufficient compare to other region of Turkey. So, Van region can be a new corn grain production area in future.
