Pagination or Media Count:
The productive potential of the Greek fields in wheat yield has not yet been fulfilled. On the contrary, it is possible to achieve higher yields, reaching 200 kilograms per acre now, and surpassing them at a later date. The existing potentials of the Greek soil may be fulfilled as follows 1 Proper preparation of the field for sowing proper hoeing and leveling so as to achieve good germination throughout the field and good growth during the winter without bare spots by rain pools and other causes of bad sowing. 2 Use of selected, appropriate varieties for each area with high germinating ability. 3 Reasonable fertilization according to the real needs of each area, regardless of the locality, sowing and fertility of the field. At present, most fields are not fertilized and some are fertilized insufficiently and at random. 4 Sowing of the fields at the best season by a method that will result in regular germination and vital growth -- the basic factors for high yield. 5 Keeping the fields in good condition, nitrogen fertilization, and preservation of the growth of the plants, so as to fulfill the ambitions and hopes of the farmer. 6 Using all possible methods to retain the soils moisture by keeping the field clear of all weeds during the entire growing period of the plants and especially during the critical periods.
