The main areas of work relate to:
- sustainable agriculture and environmentally-friendly plant protection technologies that are based on the implementation of measures for decreasing the risk due to the use of pesticides and implementation of the principles of integrated plant protection;
- risk assessments, studying bionomy, morphological and genetic studies of the economically most important species of pests;
- interactions between the host plants and various plant pests or abiotic stress;
- diagnosing, developing and implementing new laboratory methods for the harmful organisms diagnostics.
