Abstract: The European Union has adopted Agenda 2000 reform package, which defines the extent of agricultural production, whose concept of the production of biologically safe food and environmental and economic impact. Proper fertilization is one of the preconditions for the production of healthy food. Therefore, in recent decades, increasing attention is paid to the results of biological nitrogen fixation. This is a natural process which is not only significant but also in a biological practical sense. In the production of basic agricultural crops (corn, wheat and soybean) reduced consumption of mineral fertilizers is very important for the economic viability of production and environmental protection. Numerous studies have shown that the application of biofertilizers reduced use of mineral fertilizers to 60 kg.ha -1 and influences the increase in the quality of land for the plant.
