The National Action Plan for limiting the risks associated with the use of plant protection products for years 2013-2017, primarily aimed at the promotion of the general principles of integrated pest management and the prevention of hazards related to the use of plant protection products, has been implemented through many projects. Importantly, all these projects have been realized with the active participation of advisory services, research institutions, public administration, and sectoral organizations.
Essential elements supporting the implementation of objectives and measures adopted in the National Action Plan include, for example, multiannual programmes carried out by research institutes supervised by the Ministry of Agriculture and also ensuring the transfer of knowledge from theory to practice. One of the key new tasks carried out under the framework of multiannual programmes in the field of plant protection is the development and launch of the Online Pest Warning System (Platforma Sygnalizacji Agrofagów, www.agrofagi.com.pl) and the monitoring of plant pests which are economically important in agriculture. The system is operated by the Institute of Plant Protection - PIB in close cooperation with the Institute of Horticulture and the Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation PIB. The project is financed from the budget of Multiannual Programmes implemented by:
This tool enables broad and coherent cooperation in the area of plant protection between all stakeholders and organizations by providing information on:
Considering the experience of research institutions, public administration and sectoral organizations, as well as their previous cooperation in the promotion and implementation of the general principles of integrated pest management, we encourage the active use of the Online Pest Warning System, including the monitoring of pests in crops and sharing observations with farmers.
Persons interested in the entry of their own observations conducted on standard production farms, demonstration farms or experimental farms can get access to the system and publish detailed information. Reports and questions should be forwarded to the Institute of Plant Protection - National Research Institute, tel. 61 864 9075, fax 61 864 91 20.
