Journal of Plant Protection Research is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes original papers, rapid communications, reviews, covering all areas of plant protection. Subjects include phytopathological virology, bacteriology, mycology and applied nematology and entomology as well as topics on protecting crop plants and stocks of crop products against diseases, viruses, weeds etc.
The Journal is published by Institute of Plant Protection – National Research Institute and Committee on Agronomic Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences. By 1997 under the title Prace Naukowe Instytutu Ochrony Roślin and Annals of Agricultural Sciences - Series E - Plant Protection).
JPPR publishes original research papers, rapid communications, critical reviews, and book reviews covering all areas of modern plant protection. Subjects include phytopathological virology, bacteriology, mycology and applied nematology and entomology as well as topics on protecting crop plants and stocks of crop products against diseases, viruses, weeds etc. We publish papers which use an interdisciplinary approach showing how different control strategies can be integrated into pest management programmes, which cover high and low input agricultural systems worldwide, within the framework of ecologically sound and economically responsible land cultivation.
Relevant topics include: advanced methods of diagnostic, and computer-assisted diagnostic plant research and new findings, biological methods of plant protection, selective chemical methods of plant protection, the effects of plant-protecting agents and their toxicology, methods to induce and utilize crop resistance, application techniques, and economic aspects of plant protection.

The rules and guidelines for integrated pest management specified in Annex III, sections 2
and 3, state “General principles of integrated pest management”: Harmful organisms must
be monitored by adequate methods and tools, where available. Such adequate tools should
include observations in the field as well as scientifically sound warnings, forecasting and
early diagnostic systems, where feasible, as well as advice from professionally qualified advisors.
As part of Multiannual Programs, the Institute of Plant Protection – NRI in Poznań
has been carrying out work and research for many years to develop or modify guidelines for
monitoring short- and long-term forecasting of pest occurrence on crops. These guidelines
are extremely helpful for farmers and advisers in determining the optimum date of chemical
control of pests on plants. Regularly revised and improved the guidelines deal with pests
which currently pose a threat to crops. They are developed according to the latest scientific
findings and are successfully promoted among professional users and agricultural advisors.
These guidelines are standardized to include descriptions of species, life cycles, symptoms
of damage/infestation of crops, methods of observation targeted at warning of the need
for plant protection treatments, and threshold values of harmfulness. All guidelines include
extensive photographic material. Guidelines for the monitoring of pests on orchard
plants, vegetables and others are prepared at the Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation
− NRI in Puławy and the Institute of Pomology in Skierniewice. Guidelines for about
80 pests of crops are available for public use in the on-line Pest Warning System (Platforma
Sygnalizacji Agrofagów, www.agrofagi.com.pl).
