Cultivation and plowing under the afterharvest white mustard as green manure in specialized grain crop rotations, both alone and in combination with straw, raised the activity and the population of microflora in soddy-podzolic soil and changed the composition of spore-forming bacteria. Application of green manure resulted in much lower root rot infection in barley and in smaller proportion of phytopathogenic fungi [Helminthosporium sativum, Fusarium, Alternaria] in the microflora of infected plants.
