A number of tomato breeding directions for a small-volume technology are considered. The main stages of breeding work with tomatoes for Fitopiramida technology – multi-tier tube vegetation installation for hydroponic plant growing are defined. The mandatory requirements for tomato hybrids intended for cultivation on this type of vegetation plants are specified.

Keywords: tomato, breeding, resistance to diseases, hydroponic technology, multi-tier installation.
