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 increased cultivation of highbush blueberry in Poland has been paralleled with enhanced
damage to this crop by different pests and diseases, including soft scales. We have
carried out trials to assess methods for controlling soft scales of the genus Parthenolecanium
in highbush blueberry grown in open fields or under a plastic tunnel, with an approach
based on integrated pest management (IPM) principles. The reduction of Lecanium
scale population using alternative products, with mechanical mechanisms of action, was
similar to that achieved with treatments of different formulations of neonicotinyl-based
pesticides; sometimes they were even more effective on protected crops. Control programs
on plantations with a large population of Lecanium scales based on the application of these
alternative products in spring and at harvest time and chemical compounds in autumn resulted
in a very high efficacy and are considered the most suitable strategies to assure yields
without residues and a reduced impact on the environment.
