IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Database Will Improve Crop Disease Management A collaborative effort involving government, research, and industry in the U.S. state of California will expand the use of computer-based, weather related crop disease forecasting. The end goal: help support disease management decisions that reduce unnecessary pesticide use. The project, California PestCast, is designed to provide an infrastructure to collect appropriate weather data, facilitate research and validation of models of crop diseases, demonstrate their utility, and ultimately support implementation of more efficient crop disease management at the local level.

Regional weather networks are under development based on proposals being solicited from, and submitted by, participants in both the public and private sectors. Incoming data will be gathered centrally, quality controlled, stored, and then made available to users.

PestCast's technical advisory committee includes most of the research and extension plant pathologists within the Univ. of California system. The project involves the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) and representatives from California's agricultural industry as well as Univ. of California staff.

An element of PestCast is devoted to developing a centralized database containing crop disease models from around the world. DPR staff members responsible for constructing the database are alerting interested researchers and members of the agricultural community about the existence of this project and asking for suggestions about which crops, crop models, and parameters to include in the database. A web page with information about PestCastand forms for submitting informationis located at:

www.cdpr.ca.gov Once developed, the database will reside with the rest of the California PestCast network at the Univ. of California's Statewide IPM Project. FMI: J.C.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general information, publications of interest, and other information and resources related to IPM SPECIAL SECTION - Aspects of Biocontrol The Ethics of Biocontrol: Unanswered Questions If usage of broad-spectrum pesticides for pest management created ethical dilemmas, the burgeoning field of biological control poses a literal and figurative ethical can of worms. In an earlier stage, biocontrolharnessing living organisms as allies in controlling pestspromised an ecologically based, environmentally sound "natural" alternative to the perceived (and real) abuses of pesticides, but little thought was given to the unique kind and degree of environmental risks associated with biological control. Because biocontrol often hinges on living organisms reproducing and spreading from the point of release, there emerges potential to permanently and irreversibly alter ecosystems on a continental, if not global, scale. To address this critically important topic, the editors of the journal AGRICULTURE AND HUMAN VALUES are preparing a special issue to explore the consequences of biocontrol strategies, their effectiveness, andpointedlytheir ethical implications. A call for papers published in the Newsletter of the Society of Invertebrate Pathology noted that pest management technologies used to be spatiotemporally limited, both in their benefits and harms; environmental alterations caused by chemical, mechanical, and cultural tools were usually localized and almost certain to disappear with ecological time.

By contrast, when biocontrol involves establishment of an organism with the capability to track its host in time and space, the permanent suppression of pest or nontarget species across entire ranges becomes possible. Thus, along with the possibility for indefinite benefit to human interests comes the potential for permanent, unintended, and largely unpredictable disruption of ecosystems, including the extinction of nontarget species.

The Journal's editors posed a series of topics/questions for contributors to consider in preparing papers, including:

How certain must society be of any effect on nontarget species prior to a biocontrol release?

How can the possibility of species extinction be balanced against agricultural and other human interests?

What social and legal constraints are necessary to assure the ethical application of biocontrol technologies?

What are the moral obligations for compensating (often poor) nations from which biocontrol agents are taken?

Who is responsible for damages from unintended environmental impacts of biocontrol?

There were many other equally important issues raised. This eagerly awaited and possibly troubling issue of the journal doubtlessly will be a springboard to continuing and valuable debate. FMI: R. Haynes, Editor, AGRICULTURE AND HUMAN VALUES, PO Box 118545, Univ. of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-8545, USA E-mail: aghuval@nerv.nerdc.ufl.edu Phone: 1-904-392-2084 excerpted from material graciously provided by M.C. de Oliveira

FAO Adopts Biocontrol Code of Conduct Several organizations collaboratively prepared a new international Code of Conduct for the Import and Release of Biological Control Agents. The Code was adopted by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in late 1995 as a vehicle to help governments address their interest in safe and effective biocontrol, and as a parallel to a similar international Code covering appropriate use and handling of pesticides. J.K. Waage, director of the International Institute of Biological Control (IIBC) which worked closely with FAO, notes that adoption of the new Code is timely "as many countries are starting classical biological control programs for the first time." Dr. Waage also points to an "environmental community which may be unfamiliar with classical biological control" and seriously concerned about the practice of introducing alien organisms.

The new Biocontrol Code is not intended to constrain, but in fact support, commercial development; it's provisions allow for quality control procedures and facilitation of imports of predators and parasitoids for both classical and augmentation biocontrol, Waage noted. One of the Code's principal features recommends that importers submit (to regulatory authorities) information on the agent to be introduced, including an assessment of its potential effects on non-target species.

Waage congratulated FAO on adopting the Code and labeled it "an important step to protecting the future and future contribution of biological control."

The Maturing Microbials Market The burgeoning microbial pesticides market now includes products designed to protect crops against soil and foliar pathogens, herbivorous insects, structure-damaging insects, and weeds. In his usual thorough manner, IPM PRACTITIONER managing editor W. Quarles has summarized the topic in the journal's August issue, and in doing so provide a highly useful information summary. Dr. Quarles points out, in the article, "New Microbial Pesticides for IPM," that, "microbials are safe alternatives to the use of chemical pesticides," and are "target-specific, generally benign to beneficial insects, and are useful additions to IPM programs." They are also less acutely toxic to mammals than many pesticides that Quarles defines as "conventional."

The article not only describes and discusses applications for several broad classes of microbials, it includes a comprehensive summary of commercially developed microbials (other than Bacillus thuringiensis and nematodes which will be described in some future edition of the publication) and presents a current listing of the firms that produce and market microbials internationally.

End, Special Section Bird Control Information Sought Certain bird species become serious pests when, in large flocks at grain storage and shipping facilities, animal feed facilities, dairies, and other sites offering roosting opportunities, they consume or contaminate appreciable amounts of feed, create a nuisance with their droppings, or create safety concerns by interfering with aircraft or other activities. Most currently available control methods have shortcomings. Scaring birds is only temporarily effective until birds become accustomed to the scare devices. Physical restraints, such as netting or other materials to exclude birds from perching on girders and other structures, is often expensive to install, and expensive and difficult to maintain. Several pesticides used to kill pest birds can result in the death of valued raptor species due to secondary poisoning.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is studying a range of control measures in an effort to ascertain effective, more integrated tactics with reduced potential for secondary poisoning of raptors. EPA specialists are examining the characteristics and situations of pest bird flocks and seeking to identify points of vulnerability where change can be achieved. In this, EPA solicits information, ideas, and suggestions for developing successful IPM for pest bird species.

Pest Management's Challenges R. Carson's 1970 book helped make "spring" a trigger word in modern lexicon. Now, a new work published by Chapman and Hall on behalf of the United Nations Environment Programme, BEYOND SILENT SPRING, INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT AND CHEMICAL SAFETY, again refers to Ms. Carson's seminal work, but focuses on the intervening time period, IPM's emergence, and the relevance for developing nations. Scientist-editors H.F. van Emden and D.B. Peakall, building on reference material presented at a 1972 conference held in Kenya, have added information to provide a distillation of current views on the issues Carson raised in 1970. The 11-chapter, softbound, 322-page work, aims to describe how current pest management tacticspredominantly for control of insect pestsrelate to problems of chemical resistance in targeted species, unintended elimination of predator species, and general environmental degradation. Some non-agricultural factors are addressed. The overall theme stresses the need for an international approach to pest and chemical-based challenges.
