Varieties of spring barley selected by Orenburg State Agrarian University and their characteristics

Mikhail P Mordvintsev, Elena A Soldatkina

Orenburg State Agrarian University (Orenburg, Russia)

Summary. The article presents the results of selection research on the creation of spring barley varieties at Orenburg State Agrarian University that are well adapted to the arid conditions of most regions of Orenburg region, capable of generating increased grain productivity and resisting adverse environmental factors. A brief history of creation and economic characteristics of “Orenburg sovmestny” variety zoned in Orenburg region (created in conjunction with the Orenburg research Institute) and “Remontni” variety undergoing state testing are given.

Key words: grain, spring barley, selection, variety, yield, stability, plasticity, precocity, Orenburg region.
