METHODS OF SOIL-PLANT DIAGNOSTICS FOR WINTER WHEAT QUALITY FORECASTING
Published: 1 Jun 2014
Abstract: The paper reveals findings of a long-term research into the reaction of winter wheat to the infield micro-variability of growth conditions using an integrated multi-element diagnostic system. A possibility is found to forecast the concentrations of crude gluten, macro- and micronutrients in the wheat grain based on the chemical composition of plants during a phase of stem elongation. It is determined that the concentration of gluten in the wheat grain depends on the supply of nitrogen to the plants and its balance with Zn, Mn, K and P.
