THE 1st STUDY VISIT IN LUBLIN WITHIN THE INTERNATIONAL PROJECT "QKIS (Quadraspidiotus Knowledge Information System) network"
The 1st study visit within the "QKIS (Quadraspidiotus Knowledge Information System) network" project will take place at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin (Poland) on June 18-19, 2024. Awaited meeting will be held at the Department of Plant Protection (Subdepartment of Entomology) University of Life Sciences in Lublin and the hosts of the meeting will be:
Ph.D. Katarzyna Golan, Assoc. Prof. – Project Coordinator,
Ph.D. Izabela Kot, Assoc. Prof.,
Ph.D. Katarzyna Kmieć, Assoc. Prof.,
Ph.D. Edyta Górska-Drabik,Assoc. Prof.
Representatives from Association of Fruit Growers of the Czech Republic Biosad z.s. (Czech Republic), the Institute of Plant Protection, Agricultural Research Center (Hungary) and partners from the University of Belgrade (Serbia) will take a part in the study visit as the members of the project consortium.
This meeting is the first of three planned study visits, during which Consortium members will work on an invasive pest species, the San José scale (SJS), occurring in the V4 region.
At the laboratory of the Department of Plant Protection (University of Life Sciences in Lublin) the Hosts of the meeting will conduct practical training on the: SJS identification, preparation of microscope slides, the morphological features of particular developmental stages (under the optical microscopy), degree days (effectiveness temperatures) monitoring based on research methodology and SJS management methods.
Project Partners will take a part in field trips to orchards located in Opole district(commune: Wilków, Łaziska). During the field trips Partners will have the opportunity to observe the damage caused by SJS in Polish orchards, collect material for analysis and obtain information regarding orchard farmers' problems caused by the SJS feeding.
One of the goals of the study visit is to exchange the knowledge and experiences between Project Partners and work on the "Practical guide on SJS monitoring and management in V4 region”. This will be used to create future recommendation for fruit producers and other stakeholders on the SJS management.
In connection with planned field trips by members of the Project Consortium, we invite orchard owners who have problems with the San Jose scale to contact us by e-mail at: tarcznik@gmail.com.
The course of the meeting and its summary will be available on the project website.
The project is co-financed by the governments of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia as part of the Visegrad Grants from the International Visegrad Fund. The fund’s mission is to promote ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.

Basic information about VŠÚO

RESEARCH AND BREEDING FRUIT INSTITUTE HOLOVOUSY s.r.o. has been engaged in research of fruit growing and the breeding of fruit crops continuously for almost seven decades. The research activity of the institute includes practically all fruit crops that are grown on the territory of the Czech Republic as market cultures. As part of the solution of research projects supported by various providers (MZe/ NAZV, MŠMT, GAČR, MK, TAČR), it creates almost all types of outputs defined by the Research Organizations' Results Evaluation Methodologies and submitted to the Register of Results Information. These are both results of a publishing nature and applied results. Researchers and scientists publish research results in impacted, peer-reviewed, as well as in other professional and popular journals. The organization has been publishing Scientific Work on Fruit Growing for 60 years. The journal publishes original scientific works from the fruit growing industry. It is a peer-reviewed journal included in the List of peer-reviewed non-impact journals (periodicals) published in the Czech Republic. It is cited in CA B Abstracts/Horticultural Science Abstracts, Plant Breeding Abstracts, AGRIS. The successfully commercialized results include legally protected varieties, so far almost 85 varieties of individual fruit species have been entered and registered, other varieties are still undergoing the registration process. A number of varieties were granted a protection of rights in the Czech Republic and subsequently in the European Union. In particular, there is a great interest in cherry varieties in the world, two varieties have been granted a US Plant Patent. Furthermore, several results in the field of pilot plant and verified technologies were realized and contractually handed over to the user in VŠÚO Holovousy in the last five-year period. An important component of the transfer of research results into practice are growing methodologies, which are passed on to users - professionals - professional fruit growers
