This article is devoted to the creation of a new material of sunflower fertility reducing agents, having an optimal combination of tribenuron-methyl resistance and a sufficient vegetation period for the production of hybrids in zones with a short frost-free vegetation period. Lines used as a source of tribenuron-methyl resistance were purchased by Sativa LLC at the University of North Dakota Seed Fund (USA). The maximum resistance to aherbicide treatment was demonstrated by plants of hybrid combinations received by using the paternal line B0708VG, which line was significantly superior to the B0707VG line. Also, in the generation of the B0708VG line there is a tendency for increased productivity compared to the generation of the line B0707VG. The use of the method of intraspecific hybridization of the line - a carrier of the resistance gene SURES-2 followed by negative selection against the background of herbicide treatments makes it possible to create promising paternal forms with a sufficient period of vegetation and duration of the period «rise-start of flowering»for zones with a short frost-free period and having resistance to the tribenuron-methyl.
