Indigenous Varieties of Cereal Crops Moldova 5 and Moldova 11

Description

The cereal varieties Moldova 5 and Moldova 11 have been developed through hybridization of the varieties Belceanca 5 x Basarabeanca followed by selection in F2.

The variety Moldova 5 belongs to the Lutescens variation (white awnless spike without pubescence, the kernel is red coloured). The spike is of a medium size (7.1-7.5 cm long), cylindrical of a medium density (21-24 spikelets per 10 cm of the spike rachis length). The kernel is large (the weight of 1,000 kernels is 43-45 g), oval, contains 12.8%-14.0% of protein and 26.8%-30% of gluten.

The variety Moldova 11 belongs to the Erutrospermum variation (a white awned spike without pubescence, the kernel is red coloured). The spike is of a medium size (7.4- 7.8 cm long), cylindrical of a medium density (23-25 spikelets per 10 cm of the spike rachis length). The kernel is large (the weight of 1,000 kernels is 44-46 g), oval, contains 13.0%-14.0% of protein and 26%-28% of gluten.

The varieties belong to a medium ripening group. In field conditions they are characterized by high resistance to diseases such as mildew, brown and yellow rust, root rot, smut. They are resistant to drought and wintering.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

The varieties are high-productive with a medium yield of 52-54 q/ha, which is by 6-7 q/ha higher than that of the witness variety Odesscaia 117.

The vatrieties are resistant to lodging and have good baking qualities, it has been graded with 5 points in comparison with 4 points of the witness variety.
