BIO-GEL was used with Bunchuk winter wheat variety (second reproduction) on non-irrigated lands in 2017/2018. During the vegetation period the crop was sprayed twice at the stages of booting and earing with the tank mixture containing BIO-GEL (1.5 l/ha). At the same time the fungicide rate was reduced by 20%. The yield in the experiment was 3.85 t/ha, while in the control it was 3.23 t/ha, the gain being 0.62 t/ha or 19.2%.
The technology of cultivation on the control and in the experiment is generally accepted, but depending on the phase of development in the experiment in a tank mixture of pesticides added 2 L/ha of Bio-gel with a simultaneous reduction of fungicidal norm by 20%. According to the results, an increase in the grapes of the "Flower" variety was estimated at 20.80 c/ha or 18.48%.
At the site using Bio-gel during the second herbicide treatment, the Alpha-Star dose was reduced by 30%, and Lamdex insecticide by 35% from the rate of use in the control site. According to the results of the crop sowing sunflower harvest, the yield was 23.2 c/ha, while the control - 19.5 c/ha, which is 3.7 c/ha less.
The Epokha winter wheat variety cultivated according to conventional technologies including chemical spraying with BIO-GEL added (2 l/ha) yielded more than 6 t/ha on the whole area, which is higher than the forecast yield taking into account the extreme air and soil drought this year. After reducing the amount of herbicide by 20% the amount of weeds both in the experiment and in the control was reduced by 95%. In the experiment the rate of fungicides was reduced by 20% but no signs of any bacterial plant diseases were registered.

BIO-GEL use with Shestopalovka winter wheat variety for spraying the crop twice at the stages of tubing and corn ripening resulted in 3.3 t/ha (7.6%) higher yield compared to the control. This is due to the fact that the root system of the plant appeared to be more developed which enabled it to reach the lower soil layers.
The technology of crop cultivation was conventional both in the experiment and in the control. The yield of the Litanivka winter wheat variety on non-irrigated lands under extreme weather conditions was 2.31 t/ha in the control; in the experiment with 2 l/ha of BIO-GEL applied the yield was 2.54 t/ha, the yield gain being 0.23 t/ha or 10%.
Winter barley was sprayed at the tubing stage with the tank mixture containing BIO-GEL organic fertilizer (1 l/ha), the fungicide rate was reduced by 20%, the yield gain amounted to 0.22 t/ha (24.4%). The use of BIO-GEL resulted in greater resistance to adverse weather conditions and plant diseases, in longer vegetation period, in greater tilling capacity and the number of productive stems, in forming stronger root system.
