In this study, mineral contents of some plant seeds assessed as fodder were determined by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES). Ca, Mg, K, P, S were the main elements of plant seed samples. While Ca contents of plants change between 138.77 mg/Kg (Trifolium repens) and 23497.38 mg/Kg (Potaryum songisorba), K contents of samples ranged from 3772.94 mg/Kg (Festuca pratensis) and 18773.53 mg/Kg (Kochia prostrata). Also, Mg contents of plant seed samples vary between 1451.07 mg/kg (Festuca pratensis) and 4179.17 mg/Kg (Kochia prostrata), P contents of seed samples were determined between 2167.76 mg/kg (Kochia prostrata) and 4601.09 mg/kg (Trifolium repens). Ni, Cd and Mo contantes of plant seeds were found low compared with results of other elements. Fe contents of samples changed between 41.71 mg/Kg (Potaryum songisorba) and 289.50 mg/kg (Kochia prostrata).
