IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs IPM For Public Landscapes A U.S. university has launched a multi-goal project, "IPM for Public Landscapes," to compare the effectiveness and cost of differing pest management schemes at two large public facilities, and to engage in a proactive public education effort. The Univ. of Kentucky, in collaboration with a popular amusement park and the immediately adjacent state exposition center and fairgrounds, will conduct a two-phase effort to monitor insect and disease pest problems on woody landscape plants at both facilities. Pest control methods at both locations will be compared, costs logged, and where possible data recorded showing potential differences in pest populations and damage.

One of these facilities has used IPM tactics for several years while the other has followed a more traditional pest control strategy involving pesticide application on a calendar basis, without regard for actual pest population levels or damage thresholds.

M.P. Johnson, extension entomologist and a program architect, notes that "Some of the most important as well as highly sensitive situations for an IPM strategy to be implemented are in public areas where people, especially children, are potentially exposed to areas treated with pesticides." Johnson believes that, "Imposed control measures should be used only where economic or aesthetic damage levels would otherwise be exceeded," and that control tactics such as host plant resistance, cultural practices, and biological control can be used effectively to augment pesticide applications.

The program's second phase involves development of a multi-disciplinary educational program based on preparing a videotape, slide set, and a demonstration poster showing the benefits of "IPM for Public Landscapes." These materials will be aimed at organizations and facilities with public landscapes (other than the two collaborators), as well as extension agents, trainees at pesticide applicator training sessions, and the general public.

Integrated Control of Coffee Rust A program to develop more integrated systems for control/management of the fungal disease, coffee leaf rust (or coffee rust), is seeking new, more durable approaches. Genetic and chemical methods were among the first methods used. However, scientists at the Centre de Cooperation Internationale en Recherche Agronomique Pour le Developpement (CIRAD) point out that resistance can decrease the effectiveness of various methods over time and that chemical control has been based on systemic fungicides metabolized by the coffee plant.

Recent field research results show that development of the disease is closely linked to agronomic factors such as planting density, shading, fertilizer use, and pruning. Environmental factors soil chemical content, rainfall, and altitude also exert an influence. As a result, investigators think that giving greater consideration to these factors should help advance development of strategies for integrated control.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general information, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Brazilian IPM Scientist Receives Award A Brazilian scientist developing biocontrol tactics for use of baculovirus against pests of soybean received the 1996 Award in Agriculture, bestowed by the "Third World Academy of Sciences." F. Moscardi, entomologist and Chief of the National Center for Soybean Research at Londrina, Parana, BRAZIL, was presented the prestigious award by the president of Brazil during ceremonies held during September 1997.

Dr. Moscardi has been a leading figure in IPM in South America. Another internationally recognized IPM research scientist notes that presentation of a major award to an IPM leader confirms the growing recognition, by the scientific community and the public at large, of the contribution that IPM is making to agriculture and the environment.

Methyl Bromide Alternatives Directory A source in NEW ZEALAND has published an INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORY OF COMPANIES SUPPLYING ALTERNATIVES TO METHYL BROMIDE as a resource designed to assist methyl bromide users identify products and services that can control the same pests and pathogens currently controlled by methyl bromide. In preparation for a second edition, the authors seek information for additional firms, products, and services, including names and addresses of companies worldwide that offer products to control soil pests or diseases (for crops such as strawberries, melons, tomatoes, peppers, and flowers in seedbeds, open fields, or greenhouses) such as:

plastic sheets for solarization; biological control products (Trichoderma, Gliocladium, and microbial additives); natural or artificial substrates or substrate systems; soil amendments, disease-suppressive compost and composting equipment; steam equipment; and, chemicals such as dazomet, metham-sodium, and chloropicrin. Not-for-profit organizations or individuals providing information for the Directory will receive a free copy when the next edition is published. Information is needed as soon as possible, preferably by 15 October 1997. FMI: M.

IPMporium .... From its start in Queensland, Australia's "Weedbuster Week" has gone national this month (October 1997) with a range of activities to alert the public to the devastation caused by pest plants, the public's role in land degradation, and the national responsibility for sustainable use of land resources. .... Egyptian scientists, in conjunction with the International Potato Center, used extensive field trials to seek IPM strategies for controlling the potato tuber moth (Phthorimaea operculella Zeller), and determined that the combination of planting and harvesting early, regular cultivation, monitoring, and introduction of biological controls would significantly improve results.

.... Ninety percent of 21 U.S. sheep grazing operations provided with llamas reported a reduction in sheep lost to vertebrate predators (mainly coyotes) in the first year of a government- sponsored study.

.... A product that combines a pheromone with a fast-acting synthetic pyrethroid insecticide in an "attract-and-kill" tactic was first tested in 1988, later formulated for use against cotton insects in Egypt, and most recently successfully tested as a management tool for Cydia pomonella L. (codling moth) in northwestern U.S. apple orchards.

.... Research is under way to identify banana genotypes that are resistant to the virulent and widespread nematode species Radopholus similis and Prtylenchus goodeyi.

PHEROMONES FIND FAVOR Nearly 40 international researchers presented papers during a "pheromones and other semiochemicals" working group technical meeting convened at Montpellier, FRANCE, in September 1996. The resulting proceedings have been published as TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER IN MATING DISRUPTION. The 301-page document was edited by P. Witzgall and H. Arn, who note that, in the 37 years since the first insect pheromone was synthesized, the scientific community has sought to develop commercially practical applications of this environmentally "soft" technique. Papers included in these proceedings address a wide variety of uses and successes, as well as problems and areas needing further investigation and refinement. The softbound work is vol. 20, no. 1, of the IOBC/WPRS BULLETIN (International Organization for Biological and Integrated Control of Noxious Animals and Plants, West Palaearctic Regional Section).

OTHER RESOURCES NEW TAXONOMIC KEY SOFTWARE The Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Tropical Pest Management has released the software program LucID Player 1.0, the first component of the LucID Interactive Identification System that allows users to construct and view identification or diagnostic keys to almost anything. The program's keys, which are multimedia capable and include a database of other information and media on taxa within the key, select identification characters using graphical or textual characters. LucID's Windows-based components are said to be extremely easy to use and require no programming experience to build the keys. The Centre believes that LucID represents a complete new approach to the delivery and presentation of taxonomic data.

EQUIPMENT PROCESS REDUCES HERBICIDE USE A patented new process uses "sand blasting" to typically lower herbicide use 70 percent for both crop and non-crop weed management. A German firm has developed a process that propels granules (usually sand) onto target weeds immediately prior to applying the herbicide. Trials with a variety of crops yielded adequate weed control with 30 percent of the recommended herbicide rate, and with no reduction in crop yield or quality. Sand is fed into a revolving impeller that forces the granules downwards toward the target plants. Conventional spray nozzles located just behind the impeller apply a herbicide solution. The firm found that, in some situations, acceptable weed control was achieved with as little as 10 percent of recommended herbicide doses. FMI: A.
