In study, infuence of chemical protection in integrated potato management on ground beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) was researched. Obtained result was compared with an organic field. The study was conducted in 2008 and 2012 years in Winna Góra near Środa Wielkopolska. Ten Barber traps were placed on each field. Two potato fields were selected: organic and integrated. In total, 1 917 specimens representing 34 species (Carabide family) were captured in integrated fields and 2 579 specimens representing 33 species in organic fields. Harpalus rufipes was the dominating species. In the studied fields, there was no significant impact of the use of insecticides on beneficial ground beetles assemblages, while we found significant use of fungicides and herbicides.
