Knowing the importance of wheat culture both nationally and internationally, we decided to start a study which demonstrate the resistance of wheat germs to water stress. Water is one of the essential elements for the development of plants, it has the role of helping the plant to assimilate more easily the nutrients from the soil, necessary for the vegetation period. The premise of this experiment is based on meteorological data recorded in recent years, from which result that, from year to year, wheat crops are faced with a permanent water stress due to the lack of precipitation, snow, and improperly executed soil works. Thus, the amount of water in the soil at the time of sowing and also during development is very small, which leads to a delay or poor development of wheat germs, something that will make it difficult for the plants to withstand winter hardening.. It was discovered that the wheat germs of the Anapurna and Wintergold varieties showed the same viability even at a watering interval of 14 days, the germs watered at the interval of 28 days being less developed. Almost all the varieties went well through the frost period during the winter, except for the Antonius variety which, at the time of harvesting, showed dry plants for one third of the total harvested.
