Seventeen selected lines of Azerbaijani durum wheat were tested for drought and salt resist-ance with respect to parameters of adaptability and stability. The samples were studied during germi-nation under water, salt and thermal stress environments, as well as under normal growing conditions. Of the lines selected, Leucurum 242h93, Melanopus 63h93and Apulicum 317h93proved to be pro-ductive and stable in stress conditions, and they were determined to be valuable initial material in wheat breeding for drought and salt resistance.
