Abstract. The studies have been carried out through demonstrative experiments by the first in the country private Seedsman’s house “Sadovo”. Presented are the results from the studies on the productivity and some qualitative indices of the varieties of common soft wheat over a period of 6 years. The subject of the study are the varieties Pobeda, Bononia, Sadovska belia and Diamant which take about 1/3 of the total area of wheat in the country. Parallel with these data, the data on the new generation of varieties Sapfir, Trakiyka, Lazur and Zebrets, and the new genotypes – Apolon, Bezmer, Sezam and Bendida are presented as well. The Pobeda variety has been a national standard of the high-quality, strong wheat – improvers of flour (group A) for 25 years, and the rest three varieties present a new achievement in selection of highly productive, intensive and quality varieties which are well accepted in production of bread grain in Bulgaria. The Diamant variety is distinguished for its high quality.
