Soybean genotypes BDSA 05, BATEM 317, BATEM 207, BDUS 04, BATEM 223, KAMA, BATEM 306, KANA, KASM 02 (KA03-03- 03), KASM 03 (KA03-03-04), ARISOY, ATAEM 7, NOVA, BRAVO were used as a material in this study. Field experiment was conducted based on Randomized Completely Block Design with three replications. Plots consisted of 3 rows 3 m long spaced, 5 cm apart where the 90 seeds were planted. Variance analysis was performed for each character. According to the results, it was determined that the differences for first pod height, plant height, thousand grain weight and grain yield of the lines and varieties were highly significant. Results of this study indicated that; registered variety ATAEM 7 (498.42 kg/da) and BATEM 317 (467.5 kg/da) line in respect to yield and investigated agricultural characteristics can be grown in Aksaray main crop conditions.
