An influence of RF air plasma and RF electromagnetic field pre-sowing treatments on germination and level of fungal and bacterial infection of seeds of some important agricultural plants has been studied. Two plasma systems (plan-parallel and cylindrical) were used for treatment. It is shown that the treatments provide a fungicidal and bactericidal effects and positively influenced seeds germination. The modification of seed coat surface structure is investigated with scanning electron microscopy.
