Sweet corn is a recent crop in Romanian agriculture, being cultivated more and more. Modern sweet corn, like all crops, is the product of its own evolution, in which human intervention was the first unconscious phase, becoming conscious over last two centuries. Knowledge of this development may be useful for forming the basis for planning for future improvement of this plant. Purpose of this study was to analyze inbred maize lines from germplasm collection from Turda Agricultural Research Center in terms of variability of some chemical components. Biological material was represented by 27 inbred lines of sugar-1 gene. Each variant was sown on four rows, an average of 40,000 pl/ha. Quality analyzes were performed using TANGO NIR spectro-photometer. Chemical parameters analysed were: protein content, starch, sugar, NDF (neutral detergent fibers) and NCGD (neutral cellulose digestibility). Between analyzed lines there is an important variability of sugar content.
