Hramoy V. K., Rakhimov O. V. Yield and protein productivity of vetch in a mixture with oats, wheat and barley

9

УДК: 633.352+633.1

A field experiment showed that the three-vetch-cereal grain mixture exceeds the yield and protein productivity of two-grain mixture. Nitrogen fertilizer significantly increased the yield of mixtures, but reduced the proportion of vetch in the crop and fodder supply of digestible protein.

Keywords: vetch (Vicia sativa L.), oats (Avena sativa L.), spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), barley (Hordeum sativum L.), mixture, nitrogen fixation, yield, fiber, feed units, digestible protein.

Pankov D. M. The eff ectiveness of annuals’ mixtures in agriculture of the Altai steppe

11

УДК: 633.1: 633.31/37; 63

The article considers the yields of grain mixture in the steppe of the Altai, depending on the species composition and agricultural practices. The best results were obtained at early dates of planting (May 10–15) with the application of N15P20K20: the yield reached 2.85 t/ha. Th e highest yield is obtained from a mixture of oats, peas, barley and wheat with vetch; it is 0.48 t/ha more than that of the single-species oats crops. Yield increase from bee pollination reaches 0.06 t/ha.

Keywords: forest-steppe of the Altai, grain mixture, sowing dates, fertilizers, components of the mixture, bee pollination, productivity.
