In the article it is shown the results of research in the direction of creation of new high-productive forms of soft winter wheat with the use in breeding process of spelt wheat (Triticum spelta L.). Research was started in 2010 under leading of doctor of biological sciences F. M. Parii. New variety was created in the result of crossing of varieties of soft winter wheat Kopylivchnka and Kryzhynka with the sample of spelt wheat from foothills of the Carpathians with next hybridization of obtained hybrids with each other and with the use of multiply individual selections. In the results of crossing were obtained 12 hybrid populations with wide genetic basic. Hybrid progenies F2–5 analyzed for the manifestation of morphological and agronomic traits which allows to select four best samples. After analysis and testing on the productivity of the ear, grains quality and resistance to lodging, two breeding samples with high qualitative characteristics were selected, which continued to be analyzed in a competitive testing. Thus it was selected an awn line of soft winter wheat 1809. This sample was analyzed in a competitive testing during 2013–2015 in the experimental plot of Uman national university of horticulture. In the research was used systematic method of sites placement with accounting area 10 m2 and plant density 400 thousand pcs/ha. All records and observations were conducted in accordance with the «Methodology of the State Scientific and Technical Expertise of Plant Varieties». After all accounting and measurements, the grain was threshed out of the ear and deter-mined the yielding capacity. The reliability of the research and the significance of the differences between the indicators of productivity in experimental studies were evaluated based on the results of the variance analysis of mathematical statistics and the use of the MS Excel application. During the period of control testing in the experimental plot of Uman national university of horticulture sample 1809 was characterized by high productive (6,38 t/ha), high gluten content (36,1 %) and complex resistance to unsuitable environment factors, in particular, ash, brown rust and powdery mildew. The positive feature of the sample 1809 is the high resistance to lodging, which is associated with low stem (80 cm) and the presence of strong, coarse straw. Sample characterized by high mass of 1000 grains (46,8 g) and grain unit (690 g/l). Sample 1809 in 2015 was transferred to the State scientific and technic expertise with the name Artaplot. Testing of new variety conducted during 2015–2018 in17 State centers of expertise of plant varieties in different regions of Ukraine. During the State scientific and technic expertise (2015–2018) the average yield of the variety Artaplot in the Polissya and Forest-steppe regions varied from 61,5 to 61,9 t/ha, which exceeded the average yield for the Polissya region on 0,53 t/ha but it was inferior on 0,23 t/ha to the average indicators in the Forest-Steppe zone. It was fixed high resistance of plants of variety Artaplot against unsuitable environment factors (deceases, lodging, drought, frost e. g.) in both zones of growing with not significant variation on percent of affected plants. Depending on the growing zone, differences in the weight of 1000 grains were recorded: in the Forest-steppe this indicator was 43,3 g, while in Polissya zone it was 46,0 g. The content of protein in the grain of the variety Artaplot varied within the range 14,3–14,8 %. Accordingly to the results of State Scientific and technic expertise variety Artaplot listed to State register of plant varieties suitable to dissemination in Ukraine in 2019 and recommended for growing in the zone Polissya. Created variety belongs to medium-ripening group of plants with duration of vegetation period 285–290 days. It differs by leveling stems and uniform ripening. The variety has winter type of development. Bush – erect, plants without wax plaque. Ear – prismatic, long (14,0 cm), with medium density, in the phase of full ripeness has red color and long awns. Grain – egg-shaped, large, has light brown color. Variety has good level of winter- and drought- resistance, tolerance to deceases, resistant to aspiration and germination of grain in the ear.

Peavine (Lathyrussativus) belongs to the legume family. Peavinegained fame thanks to its extra-ordinary endurance. It is able to grow on such a dry ground, where no other plant will survive. At the same time it also tolerates well excess moisture. In addition, the peavine are not demanding for soil fertility and are almost not damaged by pests and diseases. Therefore, it is most widely distributed in regions where agriculture is almost impossible.
Despite the presence of a significant number of valuable characteristics, the peavine needs a selection improvement. In particular it needs improving the suitability for mechanized harvesting. Peavine plants have a stem length of up to 1 m and therefore prone to sinking. It is desirable to obtain determinant varieties of shrub type with a rigid stalk, which will be kept straight to the ripening. When new varieties are produced, seed yields are the main indicator of the value of the source selection material. Solving the problem of increasing productivity depends on the genetic potential of the variety, its plasticity and high resistance to major diseases.
In the article the characteristic of a new cultivar of peavineIvolga is presented, which in the future will take significant crop areas in Ukraine. The variety of peavineIvolga was made in the Institute of grain crops of NAAS it is derived by individual selection from the natural hybrid of the Peavine variety Spodyvanka. It belongs to varieties of complex use (grain and forage). Registered for cultivation in the Steppe and Forest-steppe of Ukraine in 2017.
The new variety of peavineIvolga is characterized by high yield performance and quality of seeds. The variety is resistant to drought, major diseases; withstand spring frosts to minus 7–8оC. In the two years (2016–2017), of a competitive variety trial under the conditions of the State Enterprise «Experimental Farm «Krasnogradske»,the maximum grain yield was 3.58 t/ha and celebrated with high quality. It is recom-mended to grow a variety in arid conditions in both the northern and southeast steppes of Ukraine.

It is topical to develop the sweet corn with the red-colored grain, high content of antioxidants and of vitamin P.
Anthocyanins change the hue and intensity of coloration in media with different pH values, at different temperatures, etc. Therefore, it is very important that the attractive red color does not change during the heat treatment process of sweet corn cobs.
The purpose of the study is to investigate how the color of sweet corn grains varies depending on the heat cooking.The studies were conducted at the State Enterprise Institute of Grain Crops of the NAAS in the Laboratory of Biotechnology. The experimental material were the cobs of maize of the F4 population (CE401xChornosteblova).
For research, the cobs with the red-colored grain on a kernel milk stage were used, on the 21–23-rd day after self-pollination. Three ways of heat treatment of cobs were considered: 1) boiling in plain water; 2) boiling in ordinary acidified water; 3) baking in husks.The grain in the control version (without heat tre-atment) was characterized by intense red color and dense structure. The cobs in the control version were the most attractive (5 points). The grain tasted sweet and its structure was tender and succulent, but due to the lack of heat treatment, the grain's taste was 4 points. When boiled in plain non-acidified water, the grain lost its color and became a greenish-gray. Its condition was estimated at 1 point. A considerable amount of anthocyanins contained in the grain were washed out with water during cooking and the water became intense greenish-gray. During cooking of cobs in acidified water, the grain lost its color only partially because the pigments are more stable in acidic environment than in neutral. The color of the cobs was rated 4 points. This is due to the fact that some of the pigments from the grain are washed out with water and the latter turns reddish-pink. The taste qualities of the cobs in this version corresponded to 3 points: the grain was sweet, but with a tangy taste of acid and denser than in the previous version.
After baking the sweet corn cob in the oven at 180 ˚С the grain color was the best, compared to other variants of culinary processing we studied. Its score was 5 points and it remained unchanged. This is probably due to the fact that anthocyanins are water-soluble pigments that are washed out by water during cooking, as a result – the grain is discolored. When baking, contact with water is absent and the color of pigments does not change. The taste qualities of the grain in this version corresponded to a score of 5/5: grain was sweet, non-acidic, the grain structure was slightly denser than that of cobs boiled in plain water.
Depending on the method of heat treatment, the grain of sweet corn of genotype F4 (CE401xChornosteblova) changed color and structure. The best results were obtained when baking the cobs in the oven at 180 ˚C, the structure and red color of the grain remained almost unchanged.When boiling cobs in the plain water, the color of the grain deteriorated and in the water acidified with 9% vinegar, although it was slightly better, however, the intensity of color decreased and the grain became more brittle.

A comprehensive study of the productivity elements and their relations with economically valuable traits could be used to improve the sort models for the specific agroclimatic zones and to determine the priority selection parameters for the component attributes of productivity.
The study of the characteristics of the manifestation and variability of the constituent elements of productivity in soybean varieties is the main reason for a selection theory developing taking into account the specifics of the weather and technological conditions of the zone for which they are created. One of the main features in the structure of the plant, which determines the productivity of the sort, is the mass of seeds per a plant.
The purpose of the research was to determine the manifestation of the feature “seed weight from a plant” in the, parental forms and hybrids. Also to establish the level of variability behind the soybean va-rieties in the F1–F4 hybrid combinations. The tasks were also to determine the effectiveness of selections for productivity in terms of the “seed weight from a plant” indicator from the hybrid populations of the F2–F5.
The studies were conducted on the experimental base of the Institute of the Irrigated Agriculture NAAS during the 2007–2015. Studied varieties of competitive varietals testing, collection samples, differed according to the ripeness and origin groups, F1 hybrids and F2–F5 hybrid populations were also studied.
25–44 hybrids and populations were studied annually. The hybrid (F2–F4) and breeding nurseries, the 2,25 m² areas were sown with a SKS-6-10 seeder with a cassette sowing unit. Every 9number stan-dards were posted. The 6,0 m2 control nursery area was three-time sown.Selections on the basis of the “seed weight from a plant” were carried out in the F2–F5 populations. The varieties with the best economically valuable traits and properties and lines of the various groups of ripeness were included to the hybridization hotbed.
The analysis of the manifestation and variability of the sign “seed mass from a plant” in varieties of competitive variety trials showed that there is a very significant amplitude of variability in this indicator. The range of variability of varieties was higher in the mid-season and the late-ripening group.
The maximum values of the grain mass from a plant are observed in the middle-ripening and the late-ripening groups in 2008 – 22,88 and 27,20 g/plant. Somewhat soybean varieties were inferior for the manifestation of the trait in 2009. In the group of late ripening varieties there were the highest average indices – 9,82–12,99 g/plant. The middle-ripening and early ripening group of varieties was significantly inferior on this trait, especially in the dry 2007, which led to a decrease in the range of variability between min and max, g.
The coefficient of genotype variation (Vg) depended less on the ripeness group. However, the weather conditions of the year were more significant factor, despite the vegetative irrigation. This indicates the negative effect of heat and low humidity on the genotypic variability of the trait and its manifestation in varieties.
Thus, it has been established that in soy characteristic “seed mass from a plant” has significant genotypic variability and has significant differences in varieties of different groups of ripeness, which may be a prerequisite for predicting the effective selection for this factorial trait.
The high level of genotypic variation of the feature “seed mass from a plant” indicates the possibility of carrying out effective selection from hybrid populations. However, it is desirable to establish a connection with this characteristic with other biometric and utilitarian indicators.
The calculated correlation coefficients showed a high correlation (r≥0,80) of the seed mass from the plant with the signs: the number of productive nodes on the branches, the number of productive nodes on the plant, the number of beans on the plant, the number of grains from the plant, the mass of beans from theplant. A high correlation of this trait with seed yield was also established, which made it possible to predict the prospects of selections for increasing seed yield using factorial “seed weight from a plant”.
From the F2–F5 hybrid populations in terms of the “seed mass from a plant”, selections were made (more than 50 elite plants). The results of individual selection tested in a breeding nursery showed that in the most hybrid populations have a high percentage of the high-performing genotypes which can be obtained by selections in the third and fourth generation populations.
From the selections carried out in the F3 populations, the proportion of families exceeding the standard for seed yield was in the range of 28,0–37,5 %. In the second generation of hybrids, the efficiency of selection was 1,5–2 times lower, which is explained by the presence of the high heterozygosity in the F2 and the possible manifestation of competitive heterosis, which is not manifested in the next generation (in the selection nursery).
The high selection efficiency for a seed yield in terms of the “seed weight from a plant” was also in the F4 and the F5 populations. However, a selection in the later generations leads to a significant increase in the term of creating varieties, as well as the possible negative impact of natural negative selection, aimed at survival of the “wild-type” genotypes with low yields and high adaptability to survival.
It has been established that soy’s trait “seed weight from a plant” has the significant genotypic variability and has significant differences in varieties of the different groups of ripeness, which can predict the effect of the selection for this factorial trait.
The highest yield of high-yielding genotypes, reached by the “seed mass from a plant” indicator was obtained from the F3 populations, therefore, intensive selection for soybean productivity under irrigation conditions by the indicator “seed mass from a plant” should be started from the third generation.
To create the new high-yielding soybean varieties with a 3,5–5,5 t/ha yield under irrigation, it is promising to use in crossings of variety samples contrastive by groups of ripeness and genetic pedigree: Diona/Faeton, South 30/3147 (3) 91, South 30 /Phaeton), South 30/Vityaz 50, Kiev 91/Apollo, South 40/Apollon, USHI-6/Vityaz50, USHI-6/Phaeton, Evans/Apollo, (Evans x Traff)/Hodgson.

The groups of early fall (55), midlate (58) and late-frosty (55) samples of sugar sorgh in accordance with the growing season were allocated. It is established that high-sugar varieties are late-ripening samples with a high yield of green mass and the lowest yield of the whisk with the grain. That is, they are characterized by a low percentage of panicle yield with grain in the yield of green mass. There is a pattern, the smaller the grain, the greater the sugar content in the juice of the stems. To confirm this pattern, a search experience was laid in 2017 at the Sinelnikovsky breeding and experimental station.
Search experience included the study of the content of sugars in the juice of the stalks of variety samples with and without grain, that is, fertile and sterile forms. Studies were conducted in the nursery of competitive sugar sorghum and breeding sterile lines.
As a result of the research, different content of sugars in the juice of the stems of sorghum samples was observed.
As a result of studies of sugar sorghum, it was found that the content of sugars in the juice of the stems of sterile variety samples is 19.2 % higher than in the same variety samples with a grain of 14.3 %. The sugar content in the juice of the stems of sterile variety samples with grain ranged from 8.8 % [F1 (430sugar x 12T309)] to 18.4 % (Pineapple). The sugar content in the juice of the stems of sterile varieties without grain varied from 12.2 % [F1 (Efremov white 2s x 12T209 sugar)] to 21.8 % F1 (093094a grain х Silo Kato)
It was also established that the average yield of green mass of mid-season variety samples is – 16.8 t/ha higher than that of early ripening – 16.5 t/ha, but less late-ripening – 19.3 t/ha. The inverse pattern is observed in grain yield. It was established that the percentage of panicle yield with grain in the yield of green mass of middle-aged variety samples is 22% higher than in late-ripe – 17 %, but less early-ripening 28 %. There is a pattern, the smaller the grain, the greater the sugar content in the juice of the stems.

World maize selection (Zea mays L.) ismainlybasedontheuseofrelatedlinesofvariousgeneticplasmas – Lancaster, Reid, Iodent, andothers. They are created mainly on the basis of special hybrid combinations obtained when crossing the best elite lines.A small quantity of such lines still allows you to synthesize a large quantity of different hybrid structures that react differently to self-pollination.At the same time, further progress in heterosexual selection is ensured by constant improvement of known basic models based on alternative groups of lines.
The characterization and evaluation of test-crosses, while comparing them with the best standards, is a very important link in the selection of a new source material and the improvement of the early-season lines associated with the genetic plasma of Iodent.It also allows you to set the correct direction of selection of the source material for a more effective result.
Assessment and selection on a complex of economic-valuable signs of test-crosses of ripening constant lines (DK555, DK714/195, DK744, DK237, DK216, DK234, DK213, DK1274) of plasma Iodent concerning their adaptation to the conditions of the zone Steppe of Ukraine.
The research was carried out in the experimental farm "Dnipro" of the R&D Institute of Grain Crops of National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine in 2013–2015. The source material was 8 early-season lines of the plasma Iodent: DK555,DK714/195,DK744,DK237, DK216, DK234, DK213 andDK1274.To determine their combination ability, 4 lines were used: testers of different genoplasms: DK247 (Mixed), DK296 (Lancaster), DK272 (BSSS х Laukon), DK951 (BSSS).The standards for testing the test-crosses were hybrids: early-season – Dniprovsky 181SV, Middle-season – Orzhitsa 237MV and Medieval – Soloniansky 298SV.
In our research, the test-cross hybrids of constant lines differed significantly in terms of the average population yield of grain over the years. In particular, the grain yield in them varied from 5,72 to 7,34 t/ha at harvest moisture from 11,2 to 21,1%, depending on water supply. In 2013 it was 1,62 t/ha higher than in 2014 and by 0,94 t/ha compared to 2015.At the same time, test-crosses in 2013 on average exceeded the standards of the early-season Dniprovsky 181 SV at 1,19 t/ha and the mid-season standard Orzhitsa 237 MV at 0,18 t/ha, but yielded the medium-season hybrid Soloniansky 298 SV at 1,25 t/ha.In 2014 and 2015 all the test crops slightly exceeded the standard yield of the Dniprovsky 181 SV standard, but yielded to the other two. Regarding the length of the ladder period – the flowering of 50% of the cobblestones, then the test-crosses lines studied on the average for 2013–2015, then it averaged 54,6 days, with fluctuations from 50 to 57 days. This indicator in the standards of hybrids Dniprovsky 181SV, Orzhitsa 237 MV and Soloniansky 298 SV was 53,7; 54,3; 56,4 days, respectively.Testcroses were selected in which the length of the period of the staircase – the flowering of 50% of male and female inflorescences was 1–7 days less than in the early-seasonDniprovsky 181 SV. Among them: DK555 х DK247, DK714/195 х DK296 and DK555 х DK272 which in average for the years of research it was 54; 51,8 and 55 days, respectively. In years the course of our studies, the weather conditions were very constrictive for moisture, so it was possible to observe a significant variation in the height of plants in the test-crosses of constant lines.It's minimum average population (228,2 cm) was noted in 2013, and the maximum (275,0 cm) in 2015, which was close to the standards. The average height of attachment in 2013 they made 83,4 cm. Limits of the studied feature of test-crosses varied from 71,0 to 103,5 cm.The test-crosses on average were at the level with the standard of Dneprovsky 181 SV and they were inferior to the Orzhitsa 237 MV hybrids and the Soloniansky 298 SV hybrid by 3,2and 15,2%, respectively.
The results to the research in the 2013–2015, the reaction to the weather conditions of test-crosses of constant lines was studied, which allowed to reveal the peculiarities of the manifestation of their yield potential and indicators of economic-valuable signs. Highlight test-crosses DK1274 х DK951, DK 1274 х DK 296, exceeded the yield of grain, respectively, by 0,30 and 0,82 t/ha than the medium-season hybrid standard Soloniansky 298SV and indicators of economic-value characteristics at the level or better than standards.

The basis of any selection process is the availability of a source material with a wide genotypic variability along the main economic-valuable traits. In this regard, the mobilization of the genetic diversity of the original forms is the first and very important stage in the development of varieties. The formation and effective use of collections of cultivated plants is of great importance for the implementation of scientific, breeding, training and other programs.
The goal of the work is a comprehensive study, conservation of genetic diversity of sorghum, enrichment of the gene pool with the raw material and its effective use in the selection process.
At this stage of work in the Sorghum Breeding Laboratory of the Institute of Grain Crops of NAAS, a basic collection of sorghum, numbering 591 samples, including grain sorghum – 347, sweet sorghum – 127, broomcorn – 29, sudan grass – 88.
Most of the collection is made up of selection varieties, much smaller – breeding lines, insignifi-cant – synthetic populations and local varieties.
Сollection samples have a fairly wide range of origin and represent 34 countries around the world. Most of all in the collection of samples from Ukraine – 303, among them a significant part of their own selection. The collection also includes samples from China – 68, the USA – 44, Russia – 40, Hungary – 25.
France– 13. In a smaller number are samples from India– 9, Argentina and Sudan – 7, Turkmenistan – 6, Vietnam – 4. In addition, the collection has several samples from 22 other countries, including Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece. Mongolia, Palestine, Turkey, Australia and others.
During 2011–2015 years in the laboratory of sorghum breeding, the samples of the available sorghum gene pool were studied, systematization and description of collection samples according to international catalogs, identification of sources and donors of valuable economic features, identification of variability of quantitative traits, formation of a collections of grain sorghum and sugar sorghum in accordance with the vegetation period.
According to the data of phenological observations, the sorghum collection material, which was in the study, is divided into maturation groups. In addition, biometric measurements of the main quantitative characteristics were carried out: the height of the plants, the size of the panicle and the third on top of the sheet, the thickness of the main stem, the number of leaves on it, the number of stems per plant and others.
Based on the results of the study, 39 sources of valuable economic characteristics were identified among the collection samples of grain sorghum. Namely: coarse-grained (9), high productivity (9), rapid return of moisture during ripening of grain (9), increased rate of initial growth (4). Among the early-maturing forms, donors were identified for the selection of grain sorghum for precocity (8). In addition, among the samples of grain sorghum, those with the highest yield (6) were identified.
Among the collection samples of sweet sorghum isolated samples with a consistently high content of sugars in the juice (18–21%) and are sources of this feature (8).
Among the collection samples of broomcorn, sources of early ripeness (2), short stature (2), and thin-stalkedness (3) were identified.
Among the collection samples of sudan grass, specimens distinguished by thin-stalkedness (8), intensive initial growth (2), and seed productivity (4) have been isolated. And they are sources of these characteristics.
All samples of the collection are certified and 93% of varieties are stored in the National Storage for long-term storage. The National Center for Plant Genetic Resources of Ukraine registered 3 samples of grain and 3 samples sweet sorghum, which are characterized by different characteristics parameters, 4 more samples of sorghum are submitted for registration. Formated and presented for registration of the collection of grain sorghum and sweet sorghum according to the vegetation period.
Samples of the sorghum collection, evaluated by a set of economic and biological characteristics, are a valuable source for the creation of new hybrids and varieties of sorghum and are actively used in the selection process.

Semi-dent hybrid of corn is the most versatile, since yields are not inferior to hybrid of dent corn and are widely
The main objective of our research was to create and comprehensively evaluate new flint corn lines as parent
components for the selection of semi-dent hybrids.
The starting material for the research was selected 9 new flint lines of corn, created by the standard method
based on the semi-dent hybrid IK 124-1 x IKC 217-342-1. Experiments were carried out at Synelnikovska
breeding and research station of the SE Institute of Grain Crops of NAAS of Ukraine during 2015–2017 years.
It is known from literary sources that the corn endosperm consistency is inherited by the additive-dominant
system, therefore, after 3 self-pollination the flint type of grain had 18.4% of the S3 families, and after 6
self-pollination in S6– 24.0%. Subsequently, among the families of S6 were selected 9 flint lines, which fertility
reducer of S-type cms.
As a result of the conducted research it was established that the manifestation of the main agrobiological
features in most lines was within the initial forms. The length of the "germination of plant – flowering" period
in the ILK 124/217-39 line was significantly lower than the parent components, the number of kernels
on the ear in the ILK 124/217-32 line, the mass of 1000 kernels in ILK 124/217-39, ILK 124/217-37 and
the pant productivity in the ILK 124/217-32 line. The plant height in the line ILK 124/217-32 was significantly
higher than the initial forms; height of fastening of the ears in the lines ILK 124/217-1, ILK 124/217-2,
ILK 124/217-6, ILK 124/217-14, ILK 124/217-16, ILK 124/217-21, ILK 124/217-32; the number
of rows of kernels in the line ILK 124/217-37; number of grains on the ears in the line ILK124/217-37;
the weight of 1000 kernels in lines ILK 124/217-6, ILK 124/217-32, ILK 124/217-1, ILK 124/217-14,
ILK 124/217-21, ILK 124/217-16 and ILK 124/217-2. The ILK 124/217-1, ILK 124/217-37 and
ILK 124/217-14 lines were the best for a set of valuable traits. They are recommended for the selection of
hybrids of maize according to the heterosis model (Iodent S x Iodent FS) x Co 125/Lancaster RS.

The results of estimation of combining ability of high-drought-tolerant lines of sugar corn for yield and its components are highlighted. The genotypes with high estimations of the effects of GCA on the complex of signs, the expression of which increased for the intensification of drought were highlighted. It was found out that lines KC210-3, КC416-2, RKC46, RKC18, RKC28, RKC98, RC27-5 can be donor of high drought-resistance. The samples with high donor properties of the characteristics of the structure of yield are noted. Hybrids tolerant to drought were selected, which exceeded the standard by yields of molds of technical maturation of 2.50-4.22 t/ha. The optimal combination of high yield and stability of its imple-mentation due to increased homeostaticity of their genotypes provided them with high selective value, indicating the promising use in production.
