Involvement of  legume-rhizobial symbiosis to agricultural production is an alternative way of crop plants providing by biologically pure nitrogen and as a result increasing of their productivity. On the other hand, nitrogen fixing activity of symbiotic systems, as well as the yield and soybean protein productivity are largely depends on a number of environmental factors. Therefore, the development of fundamental and applied bases to improving biotechnological methods of obtaining production is critical.

The results of a comprehensive study of features of Glycine max-Bradyrhizobium japonicum symbiosis formation and functioning under low water supply permits the identification of key biomolecules involved to plant and bacterial adaptation processes, find out the physiological role of these molecules in the formation of plant adaptation to drought and possible values for practical application to improve plant resistance to stress factors.

It was developed scientific basis and methodology of lectin application as a component of soybean inoculation suspension to reduce the negative impact of water deficit onsoybean symbioticsystemsand to increase of crop productivity under growing in arid regions.

The results of this investigation was presented on ukrainian  and international conferences and symposia. The great interest of ukrainian and foreign scientists of this research demonstrates the relevance of it.
