SUMMARY. The use of a suspension of cells of plant growth-promoting bacteria (Bacillus subtilis) causes an increase in the degree of resistance of spring wheat plants of the Granny variety against the causative agent of basal bacteriosis (Pseudomonas syringae pv. аtrofaciens) by 25 %. The initiation of the synthesis of cell wall biopolymers, in particular, cellulose, lignin and suberin, and the accumulation of the content of hydroxycinnamic and hydroxybenzoic acids in plants leaves was determined.

Keywords: Triticum avesticum L., resistance, Pseudomonas syringae pv. atrofaciens, plant growth-promoting bacteria, autofluorescence, anatomical indicators
