The aim of this work is to study the effect of complex fertilizers containing macronutrients and micronutrients in a chelate form, Nutrivant Plus Cereal and Helatonik, applied as foliar nutrients, on the grain yield and the quality of Volgar’ spring barley. Grain yield increases to 26% in the years of insufficient moisture (HCS = 0.4–0.6). Moisture availability during the period from mid-May until the end of June (r = 0.86) has a significant effect on the volume of spring barley harvest. As a result of the use of the foliar additives, the quality of grains remains high while the yield grows.
