Institute of Plant Protection and Ecological Agriculture

General Information

The history of the Institute of Plant Protection and Ecological Agriculture of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova is starting in October 1968 when there has been founded National Institute of Biological Methods for Plant Protection. The organization of the Institute was conditioned by the need to develop alternative methods of plant protection and halt abusive chemistry in agriculture.

Currently Institute has 104 employees, including 21Doctors of Science, 5 PhDs and 55 research fellows.

Institute’s Focus

Main activity direction of the Institute is focused on ‘Elaboration of environmentally safe, integrated systems, methods and means of plant protection against diseases, pests and weeds and their application technologies’. This fundamental directions includes the following objectives:

  • Determination of the structure and mechanisms of interaction useful components and pests (pathogens, pests, nematodes, weeds, etc.);
  • Methods for identifying pests and plant control with application of automated information collection and forecasting the development;
  • Technologies for production and application of plant protection means (entomophagous, microbiological preparations, biologically active substances, etc.); assessment of new biological agents (entomophagous microorganisms, viruses, pheromones, biologically active substances, extracts of vegetable origin, etc.);
  • Production of new means of plant protection and developing indications, scientific and methodological recommendations for their application in integrated plant protection systems;
  • Development requirements, designing and creating scientific and technological equipment, machines and apparatus for plant protection.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Methods of assessment the degree of resistance to major pests for the major classes of pesticides;
  • Phenological model for the development of key pests of apple orchards – codling moth.
  • Methods of monitoring and control of stored products’ pests Ephestia kuehniella (Zeller) and Plodia interpunctella (Hubner) using pheromones traps;
  • Ecological safe technologies for greenhouse pest management;
  • Methods of production and application of Trichogramma spp with different qualities for the agriculture crops protection;
  • Pheromones and pheromones traps for detecting, monitoring and mass trapping of 18 pests species;
  • Technological processes and technology for production and application of baculoviral preparations;
  • A technology of production and application of Rizoplan, Trichodermin, Vericilin, Nematofagin preparations for biological control;
  • Integrated pest management systems for tomato and grape production;

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

The Institute has cooperative relationships with a number of institutions worldwide (Ukraine, Russia, Romania, USA, Canada) as well as some biotech companies, private companies, from inside and outside of Moldova.
