IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Kenmore to Head IPM Facility P. Kenmore, one of the prime movers behind FAO's much heralded farmer field school approach to implementing IPM for rice in south and southeast Asia, has been selected to head the new, multi-sponsored IPM Facility at FAO's Rome, Italy headquarters, according to knowledgeable sources. Dr. Kenmore, a U.S. scientist, will lead the Facility which is jointly backed by the United Nations Development Program, UN Environmental Program, CAB International, and World Bank. Formerly referred to as the "IPM Group" at FAO, the IPM Facility recently drew upon international expertise to sharpen its thrust and focus. A WWW page for the IPM Facility is located at:

Sub-Saharan IPM Networking Examined The Ethiopian national IPM Coordinator and the U.S.-based IPM-Collaborative Research Support Program (IPM-CRSP) jointly organized the "Sub-Saharan IPM Networking Workshop" held at Addis Ababa and Nazareth, Ethiopia, to strengthen linkages and share experiences among selected national IPM coordinators in Eastern and West Africa nations. The October 1996 event, which drew 26 attendees, representing a variety of countries, agencies, programs, and assistance groups, examined the status of IPM activities and networks in selected African countries and both reviewed and demonstrated potentials for electronic IPM communication in Africa.

An intensive discussion focused on promoting IPM networking in Sub-Saharan Africa resulted in recommendations, chiefly that the IPM-CRSP, in close consultation with various stakeholders, take the lead in coordinating establishment of a sub-Saharan Africa IPM Network that would encompass all IPM-relevant crop protection disciplines. The meeting also endorsed efforts to develop and promote communication through various channels including electronic means (facilitated by AfricaLink and Africa IPM-Link), bulletins, meetings, workshops, and newsletters.

Workshop participants also:

encouraged other regional nations to adopt IPM as part of their national agricultural development policy; and, called for an inventory of existing national, regional, and international IPM activities in Africa as well as collaboration among existing IPM projects/activities with interest in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Partnership will specifically seek to promote the exchange of information between organizations and individuals involved in promoting and/or implementing IPM for sustainable agriculture in developing countries.

The four involved organizations are:

IPMForum (formerly known as IPM Working for Development), a loose affiliation of donors, international agricultural research centers, and other interested organizations, established to promote the implementation of IPM in developing countries; IPMnet, the three-year old electronic global information system created and managed by the Consortium for International Crop Protection; the System-Wide Program on IPM of the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research Centers; and, IPMEurope, the secretariat for coordinating IPM support efforts directed toward developing country needs by the European Community. The Partnership, based on acknowledging the principals' common interests and long-standing involvement in agricultural research and development to meet the demands of developing countries, is expected to evolve and encourage participation by other organizations. Specific envisioned actions include:

Promoting contact and dialogue with: national agricultural research systems; national development agencies; other elements of the scientific community; and with funding agencies.

Cooperative management of Internet resources, involving mirroring and cross referencing between sites.

Mutual promotion: seeking to integrate the approaches and efforts of the member organizations in fields of common interest.

Building joint capacities in information management and communication.

The study's long range objective is to collect and then disseminate relevant key data with the hope that the study's results "will help clarify evaluation of IPM initiatives and offer a basis for guidelines for their application," according to official documents. IPHYTROP involves institutions in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands that offer research, extension, and training expertise in tropical and sub-tropical agriculture. The same group has sponsored development of "Databases on Pesticides and the Environment, An Information Key Tool for the Implementation of IPM in Developing Countries."

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general information, publications of interest, and other information and resources related to IPM WWW Database of IPM Resources Searching for references on a particular aspect of IPM that are scattered all across the Internet can be a daunting task and a lesson in frustration. Now, a unique new information tool has been developed to expedite that process and help promote global IPM development and adoption through rapid access to IPM information throughout the Internet. Say hello to "DIR," the DATABASE OF IPM RESOURCES. Jointly sponsored by the Consortium of International Crop Protection and the Integrated Plant Protection Center at Oregon State Univ. (USA), DIR was designed and created by W.I. Bajwa to provide a unified path to all facets of IPM information dispersed among hundreds of sites, electronic and otherwise.

For example, is there a need to find all the references to research and application focusing on disease prevention in cool season cucurbit vegetables in China? DIR can do it and in a few mouse clicks, take a user to the exact page on any site containing the desired information.

Additionally, DIR contains 50 (at last count) attributed definitions of IPM, possibly the most comprehensive existing summary. DIR also offers a special up-to-date bibliography, with abstracts, concerning pheromones related to codling moth (Cydia pomonella).

DIR searches can be initiated in several ways: by discipline, by crop, or by IPM topic. The screens are graphically clear and colorful. Dr. Bajwa cautions that DIR, while fully operative, remains a dynamic work in progress with further refinements and additional features still in the construction phase.

The temporary URL for DIR is: www.ippc.orst.edu sponsors offer DIR as a free resource for the purpose of facilitating and encouraging global exchange of IPM-related information. FMI: W.I.

Cotton Pests in Sub-Saharan Africa COTON DOC, a 4-module software program aimed at 14 nations in Francophone sub-Saharan Africa, provides extensive texts and color pictures for cotton. One module is devoted to cotton pests while another focuses on integrated pest control. The program includes a step-by-step practical guide with graphics to assist in pinpointing the cause of observed symptoms. The producers note that this educational software provides a wide audience with easy access to cotton crop protection information and meets the needs of people specifically involved in the cotton sector: research scientists, development technicians, and crop protection personnel. COTON DOC, first published in 1995, is available on CD-Rom (for PC computers), along with a user's manual and a copy of the publication COTTON PESTS AND DISEASES IN AFRICA SOUTH OF THE SAHARA, by J. Cauquil.

A demonstration copy of COTON DOC can be found on WWW at:

IPM RESEARCH/TECHNICAL PAPERS --- categories and topics related to IPM

III. SPECIAL SECTION Consortium Profile Why and How to Register

[ Note: The section that usually appears here, "Research and Findings Related to IPM," will resume next month. ] CONSORTIUM PROFILE a brief profile of IPMnet's sponsoring organization, the Consortium for International Crop Protection.

THE CONSORTIUM - For more than three years, the Consortium for International Crop Protection (CICP), initially with another organization but now alone, has sponsored IPMnet, a global integrated pest management information sharing effort. Since there may be NEWS readers who aren't familiar with CICP and the reasons why it's interested in IPM and sponsors IPMnet, a brief explanation follows.


The Consortium was formed in 1978 specifically to assist developing nations reduce food crop losses caused by pests (all), and to also promote economically efficient and environmentally sound crop protection practices.

CICP's basic mission still stands as it's core tenet, with minor evolution to reflect shifts in technology. The Consortium exists to:

reduce pest-caused losses of food crops; foster development and adoption of sustainable integrated pest management systems appropriate to local economic, sociological, and environmental situations; provide information and consultation to help reduce hazards to growers, consumers, and the environment; function as a resource and gateway to a global talent pool for expertise in virtually any aspect of IPM; and, serve as a global IPM information service and exchange. The not-for-profit Consortium was formed by a group of U.S. land grant universities together with the Univ. of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. While these institutions are predominantly located in the U.S., CICP clearly emphasizes an international focus. The Consortium's current institutional members are: Univ. of California CICP is a direct outgrowth of an earlier program, "Pest Management and Related Environmental Protection," that was managed by the Univ. of California (Berkeley) and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. That program's leader, R. Smith, was one of the original architects and originators of the IPM concept.

Cornell Univ. Scientists at Cornell have been pioneers in establishing a strong IPM program, both in the U.S. state of New York, and in several international contexts.

Univ. of Florida Situated in a tropical environment, this major land-grant institution supports IPM research in a wide variety of tropical crops and related disciplines.

Univ. of Hawaii From its Pacific location, the University has been the site of specific notable tropical crop protection programs and research for many years.

Univ. of Illinois In the heart of the U.S. corn/soybean belt, UI engages in an extensive program of forward-looking agricultural research and extension.

Univ. of Minnesota Along with Illinois and Purdue, the Univ. of Minnesota offers strengths in crop protection disciplines, breadth of experience, and commitment to IPM.

North Carolina State Univ. A long-time Consortium member, NCSU's notable research and extension programs emphasize a robust IPM component, as well as being the base site for the U.S. National IPM Network.

Oregon State Univ. OSU, through its Integrated Plant Protection Center, was a partner with Univ. of California in the program that led to the Consortium's formation, and conducted a long-running international weed management effort that also included an active global information dissemination effort used as a model for IPMnet NEWS.

Univ. of Puerto Rico UPR is an active site for sugarcane research, including IPM, as well as other tropical crops and small-farm cropping systems.

Purdue Univ. Long a center for IPM research and development, Purdue offers a diversity of expertise and scientific knowledge on important crops and farming systems.

Texas A&M Univ. As a major U.S. land-grant research institution, TAMU maintains a broad-based innovative IPM program across a range of temperate and sub-tropical crops and farming conditions, backed by deep expertise.

U.S. Dept. of Agric. Through its new National Wildlife Research Program (in transition from a previous structure) USDA engages in IPM aimed at vertebrates that can impact crops.

The Consortium operates under the guidance and direction of a Board of Directors representing each member institution. CICP's programs are managed by an executive director and a very small administrative staff.


Several years ago Consortium leaders, all senior scientists with extensive international experience, foresaw the need for an IPM information network that utilized the emerging, immediate features of electronic communication and the inherent capability to link and assist researchers, extensionists, producers, governmental specialists, and others interested in developing and implementing IPM.

The result was IPMnet, conceived during 1993, and launched late that year with the help and support of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's National Biological Impact Assessment Program. CICP assumed sole responsibility for IPMnet in late 1995 drawing upon funding from other sources.

IPMnet promptly began a monthly newsletter in late 1993, the IPMnet NEWS, and has produced 35 "issues" since then, plus the one you're reading. The NEWS is available only in electronic form, via either direct e-mail (semi"list-serve"), or on the Web. An estimated 1,500 recipients in more than 80 nations see the NEWS each month.

In mid-1995, through collaboration with the (U.S.) National IPM Network, the Consortium established a Web site that includes access to:

IPMnet NEWS RESISTANT PEST MANAGEMENT, a periodic newsletter devoted to research concerning development of chemical resistance in pest species, and management techniques; technical information resources; and, a forum, message center, and databases. WHY AND HOW TO REGISTER Voluntary registration to help promote IPM... IPMnet REGISTRATION -

WHAT: complete an IPMnet Registration form available from the sponsoring Consortium for International Crop Protection (CICP) that asks about your IPM-related interests, experience, language facility, location, affiliation, etc.
