In a field experiment the influence of phosphate-mobilizing bacteria (PMB) on growth, development and output of one-year-old grafted sweet cherry seedlings have been studied. Two various phosphate-mobilizing bacteria PMB 6, PMB 7 and their mix were applied for increase of nursery efficiency. We established that the application of PMB increased seedlings thriving, stimulated growth processes, improved frost and winter resistance and vitality of sweet cherry buds, budded on a Cerasus mahaleb. PMB 7 and mix PMB 6 + PMB 7 increased an output of seedlings, reduced the cost price of a planting material and increased the level of profitability. The greatest economic benefit was received by using of the mix PMB 6 + PMB 7.
