Method is developed for the field rating of main soil characteristics that define the suitability for growing emmer and einkorn wheat. Soil texture of the fallow land, depth of the humus horizon, depth of the soil profile, texture differentiation of the soil profile, soil reaction, humus content and groundwater level have been evaluated. The method is harmonized with the officially accepted in Bulgaria parametric methods of the system of field ratings and the categorization of the agricultural lands. The end result is an evaluation of the soil conditions and a soil rating.
