Keywords:lentil, growth and development, field germination, yield, economic efficiency
This article presents the results of 2017-2018 research on the formation of yield and economic efficiency of lentil (Lens culinaris) in chernozem soil conditions of Akmola region. The influence of different sowing dates and weather conditions on the duration of the duration of phenological phases of growth and development, and forming elements of yield structure of the crop. According to the
results of field experiments, the high seed yield under the conditions of the region wasobtained on the variants with a sowing period of 20May and amounted to - 14,1 centnersper hectare, which is higher than the control variant by 2,1 centners
per hectare. Calculations of economic efficiency show a high profitability of this crop, which varied by year and planting time in the range from 100,4 to 218,6%.
