Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is cultivated for its grain, whose nutritional value is similar to that of cereals, though it is a gluten-free grain. We performed experiments with introduced species of quinoa over a period of three years. Experiments were conducted on chernozem soil using two varieties. Sowing was performed in April and harvesting in August. Analysis of variance in the factorial experiment indicated significant differences for treatments in whole as well as years. The type of interaction – varieties x years – was also significant. Over the course of the three-year period, the average grain yield was 1.46 t/ha. The average yield of varieties was similar to the average grain yield. The average content of carbohydrates, proteins, oils and mineral salts was within the expected limit values. The results obtained for yields and nutritional characteristics correspond closely to results obtained in countries that cultivate this plant.
