Crop: spring wheat, variety Liubava. Created in the State Federal Scientific Institution “Agricultural Research Institute in Moscow” Nemchinovka “through the individual selection method from the hybrid population F4 (Liuba x Pamyat Fedina) This variety can be adapted to Central, Volga-Vyatka and Srednevolzhskiy regions in Russia. This variety is productive and stable over the years, is fast-growing in the beginning of its development. It is resistant to grain germination in the spike and lodging. Leaf rust and oidium leaf spot affect it less than the standard variety, and the oidium attacks equally. The spike has a high grain amount. The maximum yield in industrial tests of varieties reached 6.7 t/ha.

Location: field trials of the Cereals Crop Protection System Development Laboratory, Sokolovo, Moskovskaia oblast, Russia. The field corresponds to the Central Region of Russia with soils type no chernozem (podzoles). Agency that conducted the trial: Federal State Scientific Institution “Agricultural Research Institute of Moscow” Nemchinovka “.
