ABSTRACT
Long-term research on the intensification of economically significant pests in rape cultivation has been conducted by the Plant Protection Institute – National Research Institute (PPI – NRI) Poznań, Poland. This research has allowed for a determination of the economic effectiveness of chemical plant protection against pests. The research was conducted during the 2006–2009 time period. Results showed that the economic effectiveness expressed in approximate profitability indexes E 1 and E 2 in rape cultivation in Poland was diversified. The values were influenced by the selling prices of rape, intensification of pest occurrence, and yield. To prevent losses in yields, chemical crop protection has been implemented. In 2006, rape underwent an average of two treatments against pests: one against diseases and one reducing weed infestation. The primary rape-attacking pests from 2006 to 2009 were: rape pollen beetle ( Meligethes aeneus F.), cabbage stem weevil ( Ceutorhynous quadridenz Penz), cabbage seed weevil ( Ceutrohynorus assimillis Payk.) and pod gall midge ( Dasyneura brassicae Winn.).
