Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of map:

It is created on information taken from the map of scale 1:33 000 000.


"Alber's Equal Area Conic for the USSR", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic contents:

Vector map is composed of 3 thematic layers. Zones of distribution and severity are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

The BMV area is divided into two zones of severity according with published materials (Vlasova, 1982, 1983). In the zone of moderate severity, the disease distribution on wheat, barley, and oats does not exceed 20%, and epiphytotics are rare. In the zone of low severity the disease development does not exceed 10%.

Method of map production:

The area and severity zones have been marked on a blank map by results of the analysis of the published materials. The zone of moderate severity includes the North Caucasus (Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, Rostov Region), Transcaucasia, Middle Volga region, Voronezh and Penza Regions (Vlasov & Larina, 1982, 1993; Panarin, 1985; Tsyplenkov, 1999). The zone of low severity is marked in Baltic States, Byelorussia, Moldova, some regions of Ukraine, and also in Central and NorthWestern regions of Russia. The vector map of the largest arable land distribution within the territory of the Former Soviet Union has been also used for the correction of severity zones (Koroleva et al., 2003).
