The Problem of Realizing the Potential of Wheat Biological Productivity under the Conditions of the Altai Region


L.V. Sokolova, V.I. Belyaev, V.N. Chernyshkov

The article is about the comparison the potential and real yields of spring and winter wheat under the conditions of the Altai Region. There is the huge gap between the potential biological productivity of wheat and the actual yield in this territory. It is necessary to create optimal conditions for the period of wheat growing season in order to full realize the genetic potential of biological productivity and to obtain the maximum possible yield.
