The article presents the results of research on the use of a complex of biopesticides, biofertilizers and growth stimulants in the production of environmentally friendly products of the main vegetable crops – white cabbage Slava 1305 and tomato varieties Chelnok. The research was conducted during 2019–2020 at the experimental production base «Ramenki» of the FSBSI ARRIP (Moscow region, Odintsovo district). The experiments consisted of nine variants on each culture. The differences were in the composition of the complex of biologics and the frequency of their use. Seedlings were grown in plastic cassettes in a winter greenhouse with a polycarbonate coating. Planted in the open ground in the twenties of may according to the scheme 70×40 cm. During the growing season, plants were treated with a hand-held backpack sprayer, records were made, phenological observations and biometric measurements were made. To identify the composition of phytopathogenic microflora in the laboratory, selected samples of cabbage and tomato plants were placed on the Czapek culture medium. As a result of the research work, the optimal combination of biologics in the complex was established-option №3, which allowed increasing the productivity of tomato plants in the open ground compared to the control (without treatments). In the tomato plants in variant 3, the number of fungal microflora species was 33% less compared to the control as a whole, and the treated plants had fewer fungi from the genera Alternaria and Aspergillus, which are particularly dangerous to humans as sources of secondary metabolites of phytopathogenic fungi – mycotoxins. Despite the significant number of cruciferous flea on plants in all variants, damage to the upper growth point was not observed on the treated plants, while in the control variant there were about 1% of them and the plants did not form a head. In addition, by the time of harvesting, white cabbage plants in the control variant had severe damage Pieris brassicae. The use of a complex combination of biological products makes it possible to obtain high productivity of white cabbage and tomato in open ground conditions in the Moscow region without the use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and plant protection products.
