The advisability of use of winter wheat disease-resistant varieties in breading is substantiated. The results of monitoring of major diseases spread in agrocenoses of Ukraine Forest-Steppe are presented. It was found that the most prevalent ones were speckled leaf blotch, powdery mildew and brown rust. The results of many-years research of the resistance against diseases within collection of winter wheat varieties of different ecological origin are discussed. There were identified 76 new promising sources of resistance against pathogens and recommended for further breeding.

Keywords: winter wheat, fungal diseases, breading for disease resistance, sources of resistance
