Insecticide resistance of the most important insect pests in oilseed rape in the Czech Republic – dissemination of information among farmers


Abstract: Central Institute for Supervising and Testing in Agriculture (ÚKZÚZ), as an independent Czech state institution, decided to build up a web tool for Czech farmers. Phytosanitary Portal (PP) was launched in 2014 with the aim of making information about Integrated Pest Management (IPM) more understandable for farmers. Important part of PP is Maps of occurrence displaying results of large-scale monitoring of harmful organisms including outcomes of prognostic models. Besides the Maps of occurrence, there are Maps of resistant populations displaying outcomes of research on resistant insect, fungi and weed populations. There can be found results on Brassicogethes aeneus, Ceuthorhynchus obstrictus (syn. assimilis), Phyllotreta sp., Psylliodes cyrysocephala (= chrysocephalus) with tested active ingredints including chlorpyriphos, cypermethrin, indoxacarb, lambda-cyhalothrin, tau-fluvalinat and thiacloprid. Thanks to its expanding content, PP should serve not only for farmers and researchers but also for gardeners and students. We hope that we managed to create an interesting application which can also attract more research professionals. Our current aim is to transfer this application into mobile phones so that the information can used directly in the field.
