The influence of nutrients and fungicides on the chlorophyll content in the leaves of winter wheat of high-yielding varieties Smuglyanka and Podolyanka was studied. There was a tendency to increase the chlorophyll content in the flag leaves of winter wheat and a statistically significant increase in its content in the leaves of the 2nd and 3rd levels under the application of compositions of triazole derivatives, strobilurin and microelements with magnesium and amino acids. Peculiarities of strengthening the chlorophyll accumulation in the leaves of different levels and the influence on the formation of crop productivity are considered.
