Wheat is of particular interest for the Romanian growers because it has high ecological plasticity and ensures relative constant yields. Having into account that the wheat growers are interested in varieties that produce the highest yields with good milling and bakery value, the purpose of this paper is to highlight the yield, yield components and yield quality of nine winter wheat varieties in the conditions of the reddish preluvosoil from the Romanian Plain. In this respect, under the specific climatic conditions of the 2018-2019 agricultural year, nine Romanian and foreign wheat varieties were tested under rainfed conditions on reddish preluvosoil within a field experiment in the Crop Production Didactic Field belonging to the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest. The following determinations were performed: number of ears per m2; number of grains per ear; weight of grains per ear; thousand grain weight – TGW (g); grain yield (kg/ha) reported at 14% moisture content; grain test weight (kg/100 l); protein content (%); wet gluten content (%). The yielding capacity of a given wheat variety, which is determined by the values of the yield component, as well as the yield quality which is determined by several indicators are important traits in making growers to choose the variety to be cultivated.
