    The article presents experimental results showing that seed coating is an efficient strategy to introduce microbial inoculants into the cultivation practice. Although the technique has been mainly tested on cereals and some legumes, there is high potential to use the same approach for vegetables and other horticultural crops. In our studies seed coating has been performed with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) inocula, with Trichoderma harzianum or Pseudomonas putida. Five experiments with chickpea, pea, maize and wheat performed in pots or field showed that the seed coating has a potential to introduce beneficial microbes into the roots or rhizosphere of the plants and, therefore, increase early crop growth and stress resistance. Possible ways of large-scale implementation of coating techniques should be further exploited and drawbacks of the technology addressed and solved to ensure its wider use in horticulture.
