The use of physical methods in agro-industrial production has recently become more widespread due to the desire to reduce the level of chemicals. The relevance of the work is also determined by the low level of use of plasma technologies in agricultural production. This work aims to study the effect of non-thermal plasma source discharges on barley of the Vladimir variety seed growth rates and the surface microbiota. During the work on the study of the effect of non-thermal plasma on the sowing qualities of spring barley, it was found that the plasma treatment, in general, does not have a negative or stimulating effect on the initial growth processes of barley seeds. Treatment of barley seeds leads to a decrease in the total microbial count of the surface microbiota. Thus, it has been experimentally established that the microwave plasmatron is suitable for processing seed material.
