Abstract

Chemicals are frequently used in protection of tobacco and other cultural crops. Statistical data reveal that in a long-term period of 25 years, the consumption of chemicals by farming companies and co-operatives has a tendency of decreasing. Thus, from the total amount of 2.584 tons of chemicals consumed in the first investigated year - 1979, if fell down to 222 tons in 2003, which is almost 12 times lower. A questionnaire which included about 300 individual tobacco farmers revealed that 95% of them used some product for tobacco protection during the whole process of growing, of which 42% apply chemicals in the soil during the phase of seedling production, 21% make preventive protection and 74% protect transplanted tobacco when necessary. Data from the long-term investigations (1979-2003) and results of the poll (2005) are presented in this paper.
