I.9. Announcement of the International Symposium regarding the questions
of yielding capacity and breeding of barley, which is being planned in
Czechoslovakia in 1972.
On the occasion of the centenary anniversary of the systematic spring
barley amelioration in the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, the mentioned
Symposium will be held on June 24th to June 30th in the Cereal Research
Institute, Kromeriz, under participation of prominent experts from abroad
and our country. The proceedings will be held in two sections.
1. Role, influence and further use of the Hanna barley varieties in
genotype development of the malting barley in the world.
2. Breeding methods of intensive varieties for amelioration of yield
components (yield structure), lodging resistance, malting and feeding characteristics
and of complex resistance to diseases and pests.
The main topic of the second section will be the mechanism of the yielding
capacity development, influence of external conditions on yield and complex
agrotechnical management of the high yielding varieties.
Recently, very valuable results have been achieved in the field of breeding,
agrotechnical management and nutrition, but in spite of these many problems
are still to be solved in conditions of intensive agriculture and growing
of malting and feeding barley.
