Abstract : The breeding of cereal crops did not get started in Kazakhstan until after the Great October Socialist Revolution. Before that time there was no available information as to the nature of the varieties grown here. Concepts of the line being followed in plant breeding under local severe climatic conditions were very general. During the first two decades following the Revolution the All-Union Institute of Plant Culture, the Siberian Agricultural Research Institute, the Kazakh Institute for Research in Agronomy and other scientific institutions made a study of the types of local cereals. Although these studies were largely botanical and systematic or statistical in nature, they served as a basis for identifying a number of important tenets to follow in expanding breeding operations.
