the analysis of patents for 2010-2017 years is given. The physical effects used in patents for solving problems of stimulating the germination of forest seeds and the growth of seedlings are considered.
a wide range of applications of low-temperature plasma in industry and in the social sphere is shown. An opinion was expressed on the underestimation of the potential of low-temperature plasmas in forestry and in the timber industry. It is advisable to use low-temperature plasma for presowing treatment of forest seeds.
in its physicochemical properties, low-temperature plasma is very promising for use in biology and medicine. The prospects of using environmentally friendly and resource-saving plasma technologies to accelerate the production and canning of germinated seeds are shown.
