Four samples of soil from the saline soils of East Georgia (environs of the city Rustavi) have been taken. Different physiological groups of microorganisms, among them actinomycetes were isolated from these soils, and their quantitative composition has been studied. Among the four isolated strains of actinomycetes most revealed selective antagonistic activity towards the gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. the mutual antagonistic properties of antagonists were investigated.
