Methods of quantitative diagnosis of the nutritional status of the young plant and quantitative prognosis of final yield were based on preliminary models constructed by using selected results ('pure'-effect data) from pot experiments with oats and spring wheat. The bases of the models — a fixed dry matter weight level of aerial parts of the plant and absolute and relative reference values — and the procedure by using the models were tested by relationships between predicted and obtained final yields. Highly significant correlation coefficients > 0.9 (p < 0.001) were found.
