Comprehensive inspection of millet original forms and their involvement in the breeding process to create new varieties and lines is an urgent problem and is of great theoretical and practical importance [3,4]. New varieties should be resistant to abiotic stresses and ecological plasticity, as global climate changes do not allow new varieties and cross-breeds to realize their potential possibilities, most of them are realized only by 20-40%. In this regard, it is important to take into account the specifics of global and local climate change, as well as the sharply increased frequency of extreme weather events over recent decades.  In general, in the genetic variability of cultivated plants, the most deficient category is resistance to the action of biotic and abiotic stressors.
