Plant protection and Phytosanitary inspection
This is a new and unique department on Polish educational market. According to Directive 2009/218/WE member states are obliged to introduce into practice principles of integrated plant protection by 1 January 2014, as well as to provide farmers with access to advisory services concerning plant protection. Consequently, specialists of modern plant protection will be desirable on the job market in the coming years.
Plant protection is considered to be vital and essential part of plant production technology. Its aim is the prevention of lower yields caused by diseases, pests, and weeds, as well as crops protection in warehouses. Additionally, plant protection is assisted by other branches of science such as phytopatology, entomology and herbology. Phytosanitary Inspection plays an important role in domestic and international trade as its aim is to prevent proliferation and transmission of pests and pathogens in plants and plant products while crossing borders.
The curriculum entirely trains students to diagnose plant diseases and pests, to conduct sustainable usage of pesticides, to prepare expert opinions as well as crop protection plans. Moreover, the graduates are capable of sanitary plant inspection, raw plants and plant products inspection, and issuance of phytosanitary certificates.
Graduates of the department are trained to work as qualified consultants for State Plant and Seed Inspection, Agricultural Advisory Centre, Customs, and phyto- and entomological laboratories. At the same time the alumni are entitled to trade and employ plant protection products. In addition, they are qualified to perform instructions and implement strategies and techniques of integrated plant protection, and biological methods of organisms control.
