Economic and biological characteristics of a hybrid Athena:
High-yielding. Average productivity of grain on sortouchastka of a steppe zone made 72,4 c/hectare that on 8,0 c/hectare, or is 12,5% more, than at the standard. In the Forest-steppe — 93,4 c/hectare that on 8,5 c/hectare, or is 10,3% more than the standard. The top yield of grain makes 120,5 c/hectare (The Chernivtsi region, 2005), the silage weight of 681,0 c/hectare (Institute of forages of UAAN).
Hi-tech in production of commodity grain thanks to high uniformity of the main morphological indicators of a plant and an ear. Exit of grain of 79-80%. Vysokoustoychiv to the main infectious diseases and fragility of a stalk. The heat — and drought resistance is characterized high. It is steady to stem and root to drowning. Seed farming is conducted on a sterile basis according to the scheme of a complete recovery.
height of plants is 213-215 cm, height of an attachment of ears of 70-80 cm, leaves on the main stalk 16-118. Heads of cabbage large (260-280 g), konusotsilindrichny form, quantity of rows of grains 16-18. Cores of ears red. Grain of yellow color, toothlike form. Weight is 1000 grains of 280-300 g.
it is recommended for cultivation on grain and a silo in steppe and forest-steppe zones of the country. Gives high increases of a grain yield at introduction of optimum doses of fertilizers. Optimum density of standing of plants in southern and central Steppes 28-32, North 35-40, in the Forest-steppe of 45-50 thousand on hectare.
Features of a hybrid:
it is especially attractive to farms of the Steppe because successfully combines high productivity of grain with drought resistance and high uniformity of the main economic signs — the size of a head of cabbage, height of plants and an attachment of an ear.
