There are several factors that determine the choice of variety for successful grain production. The first is the choice of field and agronomy. The second factor is the sowing time and sowing rate, and the third - the choice of variety.

Our recommendation has always been for farmers to distribute the risk when choosing a variety. In one farm, no matter its size, there should be at least three wheat varieties. Agroclimatic conditions are unpredictable and even at sowing, it is important to manage the risk of drought, frost, and diseases. There is no universal variety. There is also no ideal year for agriculture.

When creating the varietal composition in the farm, several factors should be taken into account:

  • The experience and knowledge of the farmer in growing different varieties;
  • The predecessor of the field;
  • Altitude;
  • Atmospheric humidity;
  • Phytopathogenic background;
  • Research, trials, and comparative testing of varieties in the area of the farm;
  • If possible, it is good to do a soil analysis as well.

It is good for farmers to distribute the risk by choosing to include in their varietal composition a drought-resistant variety, frost-resistant, disease-resistant, or a combination of varietal characteristics suitable for a specific climatic zone.

The main factor, regardless of what crop will be grown in the field, is the use of quality, certified, guaranteed seed material.
