Myshkevitch Ekaterina Aleksandrovna

Myshkevitch Ekaterina Aleksandrovna was born on April 8, 1985 in the village of Dobraya, Goretsky district, Mogilev region. In 2007 she graduated with honors from the agroecological faculty of the Belarusian State Agricultural Academy with plant protection and quarantine degree. In the same year she entered the graduate school at the RUE “Institute of Plant Protection.” In 2013 she successfully defended her dissertation on the topic:” Substantiation of measures to reduce the harmfulness of weeds in vegetable peas in Belarus”. From 2015 to 2020 she had worked as a leading researcher at the Laboratory of Fodder and Technical Crops Protection. Since January 2021 she had been in Charge of the Pesticide Dynamics Laboratory.

Historical reference: Historical reference. The Pesticide Dynamics Laboratory was created in 1974 in connection with the need to form an effective and safe range of plant protection products in the country. From the day of organization until 2002, the laboratory was headed by Ph.D.Agr.Sci. Aleiz Frantsevich Skuryat. In 2003 a Laboratory for the Technology of Production and Application of Pesticides was attached to the laboratory headed by Ph.D.Biol.Sci. Petr Mikhailovich Kiaslushko and he had been at the Head of the Laboratory until 2020. The laboratory staff carried out a large cycle of studies to study the dynamics and metabolism of pesticides used in the integrated protection systems for potatoes, grain, technical, vegetable, fruit and berry, fodder and other agricultural crops with the objective of their safe use. The behavior of pesticides in plants and soil, their effect on soil microflora, as well as the role of microorganisms and other factors in the detoxication of certain persistent pesticides was studied. As a result of studies carried out for the period of 2015-2020, 44 methods of pesticide residues determination in plants, soil and water using gas and liquid chromatography had been adopted and developed. 680 reports had been prepared on the determination of pesticide pesidues in more than 35 crops. A particularly significant achievement - the Eurasian patent № 014987 “Fungicidal composition and method for its production”.

Direction of work:
- development and adaptation of methods for pesticide residues determination;
- study the dynamics and pesticide residues content in agricultural production and objects of environment;
- development of new environmentally friendly plant protection products based on local raw material use.
