  • Studies on the protection of agricultural plants against pests: nematodes, snails, insects, game and birds.
  • Analysis of the occurrence, biology, ecology and ethology of selected species of pests together with developing methods of preventing their occurrence and harmfulness.
  • Detection and diagnosis of new pests and assessment of their risk to plant production and biodiversity.
  • Monitoring of resistance of selected pest species to plant protection products and identification of resistance mechanisms.
  • Assessment of the effects of active substances in plant protection products on pollinating insects (honey bee, buff-tailed bumblebee) and other beneficial organisms.
  • Studies on the ability of nematodes, snails and insects to transmit plant pathogens.
  • Evaluation of varietal resistance of agricultural plants to selected pests.
  • Biological efficacy studies of nematocides, molluscicides, insecticides and repellents and development of recommendations for their use.
  • Identification and testing of non-chemical methods, agents and techniques for the protection of crops against nematodes, snails, insects and game.
  • Studying the impact of climate change and crop technology on plant pests (insects, snails, nematodes, game) and beneficial organisms (bees, ground beetles).
