Streszczenie:

The application of seed treatment in the preparation of seed material significantly improves its quality. Treatments contribute to plant protection throughout its development process. Once bought, the seed material of qualified or selected category is already treated and ready to plant. Most farms, however, prepare the seed material or some part of it on their own. The procedure is regulated by the Regulation of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of June 24, 2002 concerning occupational safety and health of application and storage of crop protection chemicals, mineral and organo mineral fertilizers. The goal of the thesis was to examine the compliance with the effective laws by the farms based in Wielkopolska, Poland. The obtained results demonstrate that the majority of farmers do not apply any crop protection measures for seed treatment. The process takes place in improper conditions, and the seed leftovers are not used in compliance with the regulations.
