    1. Prevention methods of pest control and their use in Poland

      Prevention methods can still at present be a cost effective and efficient tool of pest control. Rational use of prevention methods is a feasible way to reduce dependency on chemical protection in agriculture. The costs, workload and farmers’ awareness are however of the essence.

      In Poland, crop rotation is used as a method of pest control only to a limited extent, due to the high share of cereals in the crop structure. The choice of resistant varieties is satisfactory, but farmers should make use of qualified seed material more often. Liming is recommended on the majority of farms due to widespread soil acidity. The favorable aspects as regards prevention of pest development are biodiversity and popularity of prevention cultivation techniques.
