T.V. Kornievskaya, M.M. Silanteva

The article considers the six-year results of work on the introduction of legume herbs Astragalus cicer, A. sulcatus, A. onobrychis in the Kulunda dry steppe conditions. A comparative assessment of the success in the astragalus introduction was carried out. We identified the species that are prospective for introduction. The possibility of using astragali for the recultivation of haylands and pastures in the dry steppe area was evaluated.
