Biological features. Maturity group – mid-ripening, growing season length 87 – 97 days. Lodging resistant (7.8 – 8.5 points), highly drought resistant (9.0 points). The sort has complex resistance to the agents of loose and head smuts (9 points), barley net blotch (7 points), and to concealed stem pest (8 points). Productive tillering capacity – 1.8 stems.

Economic features. The sort is of semi-intensive type. The recommended seeding rate is 4.0 – 4.5 mln of germinable seeds per hectare. Agrotechniques are conventional for the growing zone, sowing terms are early

In the competitive variety trial carried out at the Plant Production Institute nd. a V.Ya. Yuryev of NAAS the yield capacity of the sort Modern was 5.88 t/ha, which exceeded that of the standard Galaktik by 0.62 t/ha (12 %). The potential yield capacity is 8.5 – 9.0 t/ha. Protein content in grain - 12.9 – 14.9%. The yield of certified seeds is 75 – 85 %.

Patent No 120018. State registration number 08012010.
