Aegilops L., common wheat, nutrition, biotic and abiotic factors


As the number of people on the earth increases progressively year by year, it is also required to supply the population with food. The demand for soft wheat, which is the main food crop, will also increase. At the moment, the repeated self-breeding of soft wheat and the creation of a new variety lead to the narrowing of the genome of this plant, and as a result, its tolerance to the effects of various inconveniences (biotic and abiotic factors) is decreasing. Wild relatives have maintained their resistance to biotic and abiotic stressors throughout evolution. In solving this problem, it is appropriate to refer to the species of the genus Aegilops L., which belong to wild relatives. During 2021-2022, expeditionary research was carried out in the southwestern, central and northeastern regions of Uzbekistan, and local species of the genus Aegilops L. were collected and their collection catalog was compiled.
