Centre for Agricultural Ecosystems

The Centre’s research work is focused on the ecology of pesticides in various agricultural ecosystems and pest, disease, and weed management according to the principles of integrated pest management (IPM). Our research studies are focused on the development of various agricultural management practices while maintaining safe and profitable food production. The development of new agricultural management practices on the level of agricultural ecosystems and their implementation in agronomic practice will enable sustainable production, improve resource conservation, and minimise the environmental impact. Our activities are closely connected with the Institute's other departments through various research projects as well collaboration with other domestic and international research and educational institutions.
