The efficiency of protective activities of bacteria and fungi as Glycine max seeds dressing against the soilborne pathogenic fungi was evaluated in presented studies. The microbiological material was prepared from the antagonistic microorganisms strains of Bacillus spp., Pseudomonas spp., Gliocladium spp. and Trichoderma spp. The experiment was established in the field with soybean monoculture with infectious material of fungi naturally accumulated in the soil. Protective activities of applied microorganisms were determined on the ground of the number of grown plants, their healthiness and seeds crop quantity and quality. Obtained results showed that Trichoderma viride 254, T. harzianum 220 and Bacillus sp. 131 were the most effective for soybean protection . Gliocladium roseum 246, Gliocladium catenulatum 49 and Oxafun T Dressing turned out the least effective in their protective activities.
