Accuracy of a map:

it is created on materials of maps of natural scale 1:15 000 000


"Alber.s Equal Area Conic", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0

Basic contents:

Vector map. Zones of distribution and harmfulness are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Area is divided into zones of harmfulness, strong (disease distribution more than 2,5%) and moderate (disease distribution more than 0,5%)

Procedure of map drawing:

Zones of distribution and harmful activity are identified by results of the analysis of the published cartographical materials and datas on fungus distribution. S.V. Vladimirskiy (1939) map is used as a basis for a map with changes specifications by A.E.Tshumakov (1973). Area of rye is present on the map by regions where the area of crops makes more than 5 %. Therefore in some cases the disease area falls outside the limits of crop area. It is proved by field observation of the specified plant pathologists and testifies that climatic conditions of the region are favorable for disease development even if the areas of crops are insignificant.
