Skrócony opis:

The main objective of this course is to provide up-to-date and relevant knowledge in plant protection. Lectures are focused on the description of main groups of plant pests, weeds and pathogens, methods of their determination, and methods of plant protection. In practicals, the students will work with weeds, pests and pathogens, determine them and learn to choose the optimal methods of their control.
