Within the meson-exchange model we calculate f0-meson production cross section in ${\pi}N$ and NN reactions and investigate the possibility for f0 observation via the $K\bar{K}$ decay mode in pp collisions. Our studies indicate that an extraction of the f0 signal is unlikely due to the large background from other reaction channels.
