As a result of investigations conducted on the resistance of a large number of wheat samples tho the Cereal Leaf Beetle (CLB) Oulema melanopus L., 8 resistant entries with a complex of long and dense trichomes on the adaxial leaf surface were selected. 12 other entries were of moderate resistance which was due mainly to the greater density of trichones on the leaves. The two groups of entries cited above can be used the breeding programme as improvers of other wheats with valuable economic characters but lacking in this aspect.
