Zum Inhalt

The main objective of any plant protection product application is to ensure optimal status of cultural plants and crop, while causing minimal environmental damage. For spraying against diseases, preventive fungicides have to be used. The aim of preventive fungicide spraying is to keep infections at levels that do not cause damage to plants. Consequently, the likelihood of infection on non-treated plants grown in treated areas is much lower than in areas that have not been exposed to fungicides for a long time.

With supervision and controlled usage, plant protection products can reduce soil and environmental pollution. Integrated pest management is one of the tools used to supervise and limit the use of plant protection products. In Slovenia, the use of integrated pest management for production of grapes and vines has been officially recognized since 2000 and, consequently, enables control over which plant protection products can be used.

This publication about use of copper in plant protection and its effect on soil and environment contributes to knowledge with intention to reduce incorrect and uncontrolled use of plant protection products and consequently diminish a risk for an economic damage because of inadequate yields and quality, a threat for wild life with undesired effects on non-target species, and a hazard for environment because of a direct pollution. Furthermore, it is an additional project contribution to a formulation of a monitoring agent within the decision support system related to agribusiness areas.

The book contributes to knowledge with intention to reduce incorrect and uncontrolled use of plant protection products and consequently diminish a risk for an economic damage because of inadequate yields and quality, and a hazard for environment because of a direct pollution. It is the outcome of past research and advisory activities in the agribusiness field at the Slovenian Institute of Hop Research and Brewing in Žalec, Slovenia.
