The primary aim of The National Action Plan for Mitigating the Risks Associated with the Use of Plant Protection Products for 2013-2017 is to promote the general principles of integrated pest management and eliminate hazards linked to the use of plant protection products. This aim has been pursued in a number of projects with the active involvement of consultancies, research institutes, public administration bodies, and sectoral organizations.
Essential support in the pursuit of the objectives and measures of the National Action Plan comes, among others, from multiannual programs carried out by research institutes and supervised by the Ministry of Agriculture, which additionally ensure knowledge transfers into practical applications. A key new plant-protection-related task performed in the multiannual programs is to develop and launch an Online Pest Warning System (Platforma Sygnalizacji Agrofagów, www.agrofagi.com.pl) and monitor the agricultural plant pests of economic significance. The system is operated by the Institute of Plant Protection – the NRI in close cooperation with the Institute of Horticulture and the Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation of the NRI. The project is financed by the Multiannual Programs and implemented by:
This tool enables all stakeholders and organizations to protect plants together by cooperating closely and extensively to provide:
Considering the experience of research institutions, public administration bodies and sectoral organizations, and their prior contributions to promoting and adopting general integrated pest management principles, we encourage the use of the Online Pest Warning System, including past monitoring in crops and observation sharing with farmers.
If you are interested in contributing your own observations from regular, demonstration or experimental farms, you will be provided with access to the application and enabled to publish detailed information.
