SUZBIAN AMBROSION IN PROTECTED AREAS
Ambrosia is already widespread today in the territory of the Pannonian Basin, and it often builds large population, mostly in open and rural habitats. The invasive nature of the plant and the rate of its spreading disrupts the usual vegetative assembly of various types of plant communities. This invasive species not only disturbs the normal vegetative composition, but is also widely known to cause turbulent allergic reactions in sensitive people. The presence of pollen of this species in the air causes allergics, rhinitis, conjunctivitis and even skin changes.
The ambrosia suppression will be carried out on 270 ha, in 4 protected areas in the north of AP Vojvodina (Special Nature Reserve „Selevenjske pustare” and „Ludaško jezero”, Landscape of Outstanding Qualities „Subotička peščara” and Nature Park „Palić“) and in the territory of Hungary, National Park “Kiškunšag”. Treatments will be carried out during two vegetation seasons, after monitoring and mapping invasive species. Treatments will be carried out mechanically using mowers and trimmers and / or chemically using eco-toxicologically acceptable active substances.
