The work is devoted to development of the in vitro technique for obtaining wheat plants, resistant to complex of stressors, in particular metabolites of pathogen, which caused by the take-all disease and water deficit. Some aspects of wheat genome variability under stress conditions allow us to use more effectively the in vitro selection technology, somaclonal variability and other biotechnological techniques for solving the genetic and breeding problems of this important crop.
Keywords: wheat, in vitro selection, take-all disease, water deficit, complex resistance, genome variability.
