Vladimir Grigorievich Ivanyuk (23.07.1941, v. Mefedovichi, Kobrin district, Brest region – 22.05.2009), plant protection scientist. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2003), Corresponding Member of the Academy of Agrarian Sciences of the Republic of Belarus (1992-2002). Doctor of Biological Sciences (1982), Professor (1992).
Scientific works in the field of immunity and crop protection from diseases and pests. He conducted a study of the biology of pathogens of potatoes, vegetables, lupine, and others. He revealed the influence of environmental factors, means of protection and resistance of varieties on the basic vital functions of pathogens and pathogenesis. Established the structure of populations and its dynamics in space and time. He developed methods for predicting and controlling microevolution of phytopathogenic microorganisms. Revealed the effectiveness of a number of agricultural practices, pesticides and biological means of protection against the complex of fungal and bacterial diseases. He proposed highly effective methods for assessing and selecting a breeding material on the basis of disease resistance. He developed mathematical models of relationships in the plant-pathogen-environment system, allowing to predict the nature of the manifestation of the most harmful diseases of agricultural crops in Belarus and plan the volume of protective measures. Identified the causes of the onset and development of epiphytotic diseases, methods for suppressing the parasitic activity of pathogens and increasing the disease resistance of agricultural crops.
