The effect of the level of nitrogen nutrition of spring wheat breeding varieties and lines of various geographic provenance, their morphoagronomic characteristics, and expression of Lr genes on wheat leaf rust pathogenesis is studied. The dependence of changes in the intensity of disease development, number of pustules on flag and preflag leaves, area of pustule, number of spores in it, and type of wheat reaction on a set of agrobiological factors is shown.
