One of the main grain crops in the world is wheat. In this regard, special attention is paid to the development of technologies to increase its productivity, which can be achieved, among other things, by the use of biologically active substances. The mechanism of action of these substances is to activate metabolic processes, which ultimately increases productivity, accelerates maturation, improves immunity, and makes it possible to induce in plants a complex non-specific resistance to many diseases and resistance to adverse environmental factors. In the multi-year research, we studied the effect of treating the seeds of the hexaploid wheat varieties Moldova 5, Kuialnik, and Missia before sowing with the biostimulator (BS) Reglalg on the quality and quantity of the harvest. The obtained data demonstrate that treating the seeds before sowing with BS Reglalg solution ensured the tendency to increase the parameters that determine the productivity of autumn wheat; the twinning coefficient of the plants, the number of grains in the central spike, the number of productive spikes per square meter, and the weight of 1000 grains. In all the years of testing, the beneficial effects of treating wheat seeds before sowing with BS Reglalg contributed to the increase of the harvest, the level of which increased depending on the conditions of the year, the specific cultivation technology, and the biological characteristics of the variety. The surplus of harvest obtained, or calculated, from one hectare varying between 500 and 800 kilograms. Although the treatment of wheat seeds before sowing with BS Reglalg beneficially influenced the harvest quantity, the value of their quality indices was comparable to that of the yield obtained in the control variants.
