It is distinct in its high technological properties of cultivation, resistant to logging, grain falling and germination in rolls, has drought resistance due to thick hairy leaves. Tertsiya has been included in the list of valuable wheats for its grain quality.

Variety of cv Lutescens - cylindrical spike of average density, oval-egg-shaped glume, well expressed nervation, sharp spike glume dent, short and straight arm with considerable expressed keel, big grains with average groove size, upright dark-green bushlets during tillering, average thick stem, hardand hollow. Anthocyan anthers and under-spike internodes, hard pronounced hairy leaf are the morphological perculiarities of the cv.
