We show that in QCD the production of high-pt hadrons in the pionization region ln( pt2 μ2) < [( 8N D0.21 β2) ln x-1] 1 2 is not a rare process, but a usual "soft" one. Its inclusive cross section f{hook} behaves as f{hook} = dσ dydpt2 ∝ σt pt02. At ISABELLE energies and pt = 10 GeV we estimate this cross section to be at least an order larger than the value obtained by commonly used parametrizations.
