Abstract:

Grains comprise the principal group of crops in crop production. They are the basis of the populations food supply, and the most valuable feed for livestock. At the same time, they are also an important industrial raw material. One of the most important and effective means of systematically increasing the grain harvest is to suitably select the composition of the sown assortment, and to zone the varieties. The particular significance of zoning is that in every farm region only the most productive varieties are introduced for cultivation, with due consideration for the local climatic, soil and production conditions -- i.e., varieties that are able to maximally utilize the given cultivation conditions so as to attain constant and high yields.
