IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Electronic IPM Text Evolves A modest IPM information web site launched by two U.S. scientists just over a year ago has mushroomed into an extensive electronic source for "communicating information on IPM that is truly international in scope and multidisciplinary in content," commented E.B. Radcliffe, senior author of the site, now named RADCLIFFE'S IPM WORLD TEXTBOOK. Dr. Radcliffe, an entomologist at the Univ. of Minnesota, along with colleague W.D. Hutchison, created the web page as a freely accessible electronic alternative or complement to printed textbooks offering material bearing on IPM. The web site now includes 43 contributed chapters on a variety of IPM aspects, with 80 more chapters in progress or promised.

"Our objectives," Radcliffe said, "are to provide: 1) a venue for easily maintaining and up-dating 'state of the art' information from the world's leading experts on all aspects of IPM; 2) a resource economically deliverable anywhere in the world that can be freely downloaded and used by students, teachers, and IPM practitioners; 3) a forum for the international presentation of practical information and theory on IPM; and 4) a link to the vast and rapidly growing IPM resources available on the Internet including photographs and decision-support software."

The web page formerly was "Ted Radcliffe's Gopher State IPM Site," and recently adopted the new name to reflect its content and aims, Radcliffe noted. The site is co-sponsored by the Univ. of Minnesota and the Consortium for International Crop Protection. Radcliffe and Hutchison invite inquiries for authoring additional chapters. The site contains guidelines for prospective contributors.

The authors note that instructors at seven U.S. universities and several othersuse the site as a primary reference in teaching a graduate level course. Aside from better information delivery, the site helped raise student grades and improve evaluations of instruction. "But the greatest benefit we have seen is the sense of community that this shared adventure in electronic communication appears to engender," Radcliffe observed.

Rodents Plague No-till Schemes Rapidly multiplying colonies of rodents, primarily voles (Microtus spp.), have caused documented reductions of no-till maize and soybeans ranging up to 100 percent in the U.S. state of Illinois, according to a report in the 1997 Illinois Agricultural Pest Management Handbook. Vole populations can explode in a relatively short period under favorable conditions. Litters of three to eight voles can be produced every 21 days. Females mature in 35-40 days and start raising their own litters. Populations are influenced by the amount of food available and the competition for it, observes R.A. Hines, a Univ. of Illinois research specialist, author of numerous papers on rodent pest management, and vole watcher.

To control rodents in no-till crop fields where there is exive "rodent cover" left on the soil surface, Hines offers a list of tactics that can be employed singly or in a combined strategy. These include:

cultural control (where feasible, though often not an option in no-till conditions); providing alternative food (scattering grain such as wheat or maize on the field surface just before crop planting); chemical control (where permitted); and, habitat modification such as mowing existing vegetation close to the ground surface to reduce voles' overhead cover from natural predators; pasturing livestock and controlled burning are additional habitat modification possibilities.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general information, publications of interest, and other resources related to IPM WWW Database of IPM Resources Expands If there's a site on the WorldWideWeb and it relates to IPM, one's chances of locating it amidst thousands of addresses on the Internet are significantly improved by using the continuously updated and expanded DATABASE OF IPM RESOURCES, or "DIR," that was jointly launched in 1996 by the Consortium for International Crop Protection and the Integrated Plant Protection Center at Oregon State Univ. (USA). DIR, a free service dedicated to fostering implementation and adoption of global IPM, now has more than 2,700 entries organized by topics and searchable by keywords, noted site manager and DIR architect W.I. Bajwa. A "Bibliographic Database on Cultural Control of Insect Pests" is searchable using any of several key elements (author, year, and publication). DIR's contents span most of the disciplines involved in IPM.

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 views DIR as a resource in progress and cordially invites users to contact him regarding materials and sites to add, as well as suggestions for additional features. The URL for DIR is: ipmwww.ncsu.edu W.I. Bajwa, IPPC, 2040 Cordley Hall, Oregon State Univ., Corvallis, OR 97331-2915, USA E-mail, bajwaw@bcc.orst.edu Fax: 1-541-737-3080 Phone: 1-541-737-6272

IPMporium .... Collaboration between scientists in Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands has resulted in identification of a nematode resistance gene from wild beets, and claimed to be the first step toward development of nematode-resistant crop varieties. .... Scientists have identified a new whitefly-transmitted closterovirus affecting both field and greenhouse-grown tomatoes in Italy as well as two states in the USA.

.... A 1994 survey of more than 600 crop producers in 25 counties of the U.S. state of Texas showed that an array of IPM tactics had helped reduce their use of pesticides and increased their profits by US6 million.

.... Reported research shows that as much as 80 percent of all human exposures to chemicals occur through the skin and most often involve the hands. The answer: wear thick, unlined, liquidproof gloves that are long enough to protect arms as well as hands from splashes.

For use on weeds in emerged, hardy crops (cotton, maize, soybean), the flame is directed at the new leaves of lower growing weed plants. The momentary dramatic temperature increase damages cells in the tender leaves causing the weeds to wilt and die. Flaming, also said to be effective against some insects, eliminates the risk of pesticide drift or overspray. Flaming units range from a handheld single nozzle unit to multirow, vehicle mounted systems.
