Abstract : One of the main methods of modern selection is hybridization. Its success is possible only with the correct choice of parents and with directed cultivation of the hybrid offspring and subsequent selecting. Ecological conditions, that is, those present during germination, are among the most important environmental factors and have great influence on the plants. In connection with this, a group cultivated from 1961 to 1963 wheat hybrids under various ecological conditions in order to develop forms with greatest resistance to rust and which are most highly productive and best adapted to each zone studied. The work was carried out in five different sets of soil and climatic conditions in Azerbaydzhan. (Author)
