In the course of breeding in the Nonchernozem zone of the USSR, varieties from a number of countries were evaluated for seed production and useful donors were selected. By means of polycrosses and interspecific and intervarietal hybridization, populations were produced giving seed yields of 200-250 kg/ha. These included the synthetic Vega, produced from a polycross of selections from the variety Tuna and hybrid Severnaya Gibridnaya X Gamma.
