Abashev V. D., Denisova A. V., Noskova E. N., Popov F. A. Fodder crops on drained ploughed field


УДК: 663.2/3 : 631.584.4

Th e comparative study of basic and intermediate fodder crops is carried out on drained sod-podzolic gleyey sandy loam soil. Th e highest productivity of green mass among the basic cultures was provided by fi rst hay cut of red clover and winter rye. Among the mowing crops the highest yields were obtained by second hay cut of red clover, as well as rape, vetch and oats mixture, and mix of mustard with vetch and oats, sown after winter rye for green forage.

Keywords: red clover, winter rye, vetch-and-oats mixture, ryegrass, white mustard, spring rape, green mass, dry matter

Regional forage production

Khismatullin M. M., Chekmaryov P. A. Efficiency of various methods for simplifi ed improvement of fl ow meadows in Volga basin forest-steppe


УДК: 633.2(471.72)

Weakening of coenotical bonds and competition for environmental factors in a cenosis can be achieved by using expensive broad-spectrum herbicides and various methods of mechanical action on the turf.

Chekmaryov P. A., Khismatullin M. M. Economical return of mineral fertilization on improved flow meadows of Volga basin forest-steppe


УДК: 631.4: 631.811.7

Mineral fertilization is a powerful and fast way to increase productivity of floodplain grasslands, particularly the improved ones. Fertilized grasslands perennials till better, their winter hardiness increases, their regrowth in spring, after grazing or haying is also improved. The content of valuable meadow plants in herbages increases while coarse grasses and poisonous and harmful herbs are supplanted.
