Increasing the yield of winter wheat, fertilizer for wheat
The pre-seeding treatment of winter wheat grains with Melafen is a factor which enhances the hardening of winter wheat in autumn conditions.
By increasing the hardiness and drought resistance the yield of wheat increases.
In Ulyanovsk region there was tested the yield of winter wheat of two varieties: Basalt and Volzhskaya 16. The studies have shown that in all the years of examining there was obtained a reliable increase. The highest increase was obtained in a less favorable period which made 17.7 - 34.6 %.
Thus, in the middle Volga region, where there are frequent droughts and snowy winters, the effect of Melafen as fertilizer for wheat is mainly visible due to the accumulation of cryoprotective metabolites contributing to economical use of water and carbohydrates for respiration.
Gluten content is increased by 0.3-0.5% and the Cell Differentiation Index is reduced by 2-4 units, thereby improving the quality of the grain. The data show that Melafen decreases the albumin and globulin protein fractions and the replacement gluten properties of the fraction increase.
It should be noted that under the influence of Melafen as a wheat fertilizer there is a reduction in nitrate content with the variety Basalt from 63 to 57 mg/kg, and the variety Volzhskaya 16 – from 83 to 78 mg/kg, indicating that the even indirectly it can be stated on more intensive restoration of nitrogen in winter wheat plants.
