On the last two years, one of the targets of our research work from the area of Nera river basin was to determine the diseases of plantains (Plantago sp.) species from Nera river basin. Also, it is an attempt to see the dynamics of those pathogens. It is our duty to show from the very beginning that this paper contain data of just two years of research and this is the reason why data statistic interpretation could suffer dramatic changes in the near future, after we bring more observations data for statistic analyze. Regarding to the work method, all observation data were collected during vegetation period of years 2017 and 2022. In this paper there are presented only averages of data collected during the time period mentioned previously. Our observations consist from three separate operations: first operation was to determine the areas with representative populations of Plantago sp., second to determine the density of those populations and third operation was to see if those plants are affected of some pathogens and forth operation was to evaluate the attack parameters of each pathogen. The novelty is relatively high because this work provides important data for both agricultural practices especially for breeding process and also for local environment protection authorities. Taking in consideration that Plantago sp. plants are used on a relatively large scale for some pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, it is important to know the infection pressure of the plants pathogens from natural environment. From this point of view, we appreciate that the plants from wild flora are considered to be a consistent source for diseases resistance genes in the plant breeding process. Limits of the research are that data from the research are just from two years and greatly influenced by local climatic and soil factors. Results point out the small variation of attack degree between different populations and between the years of the observations time period
