Due to the analysis of experimental data it has been found that winter barley ripens 7 days earlier than winter rye and 12 days earlier than winter wheat. The high productive tilling capacity and non-lodging stems provide more than 3.0 tons of grain per hectare. According to its feeding and energetic value winter barley is inferior to winter wheat but exceeds winter rye.
