In recent years, the interest in the application of biostimulants has increased, which positively affect the growth and development of plants and contribute to an increase in the yield and quality of crops. In Poland, the area of soybean cultivation is constantly increasing and thus the improvement of the quality of its seeds seems to be purposeful. In the available literature, there are few reports regarding the effect of biostimulants on the antiradical activity of plants. Therefore, studies on the influence of biostimulants on soybean seed antiradical activity seem to be justified. The study was carried out in 2014 - 2016 in Perespa, Poland. Annushka soybean seeds were sown in the third decade of April. During the growing season, four biostimulants: Kelpak SL, Terra Sorb Complex, Atonik, and Tytanit, were used in four combinations, using lower or higher concentrations and single or double spraying. After harvesting the plants, the antiradical activity of the seeds was evaluated by ABTS•+ assay. It has been found that the foliar application of biostimulants positively influenced the studied property. The highest antiradical activity of plants was found upon double spraying with lower concentrations of Atonik and Terra Sorb Complex.
