The whole globe is becoming warmer and warmer with causing more serious drought, which threats to food production directly,development and extention of wheat variety with drought resistance is one of the main ways for improving the wheat yield in dry areas.This paper summarized the morphological and physiological characteristics, drought resistance mechanism, the identification method of drought resistance, drought resistance measure and future development direction of wheat drought resistance, the repeated drought method and drought resistance index arer more accurate in the seedling stage, the method is operational identification method for wheat drought resistance, the better application of the QTL drought-resistance marker assisted selection will be made for wheat, which will lay the foundation for the wheat seedling with drought resistance and extention of variety with drought resistance in the futur.
