IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Weed Scientist Chosen U.S. IPM Coordinator U.S. weed scientist H.D. Coble has taken a one-year assignment as coordinator of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's nationwide integrated pest management program. Dr. Coble is the first weed scientist to hold the position which has responsibility for providing leadership to help reach the established national goal of "implementation of integrated pest management on 75 percent of the nation's crop acreage by the end of the century." In a brief interview, Dr. Coble said his first task involved developing a suitable working definition of what growers need to do to qualify as actually practicing IPM. "We can't judge whether the 75 percent level has been reached without some way to measure how far along the pest management continuum we've progressed," he said. A draft definition is being circulated for comment.

Coble also pointed out that if the present acreage-based goal is to be reached, large acreage crops will need to be the primary target, and statistics for these crops show that weed management practices dwarf management for all other pests combined. Thus, achieving the current goal obviously depends on broad implementation of more diversified weed management, he noted.

With only two years (left) in the present plan, Coble feels that it is important to begin developing IPM implementation thinking for the longer-range future. Within that context, smaller acreage crops are very important, he said, and need to be considered in any national IPM planning. Dr. Coble said he soon plans to visit agricultural sites around the country to discuss IPM in general and gain feedback from growers and others. FMI: H.D.

Weeds: Worst Pest in Cambodian Rice In a recent poll, Cambodian lowland rice farmers ranked weeds as the major crop pest they face. The poll was conducted by the Cambodia-IRRI-Australia Project (CIAP). CIAP staff members asked more than 1,000 lowland rice farmers in 10 Cambodian provinces what they consider their major pest problems. Overall, farmers named more than 50 dry season pests and 62 different wet season pests. The most commonly mentioned insect pests were stem borers, caseworms, crickets, and leaffolders.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

III. IPM MEDLEY general information, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Special Feature CONSTRUCTING AN IPM PROGRAM The global push to broaden use of IPM in agricultural and urban settings sometimes neglects a critically important concept: what are the actual procedures involved with constructing and refining an IPM program? One answer comes from a U.S. scientist's lectures and seminars delving into the principles of IPM. In his lecture notes, M. Kogan offers a straightforward, logical 9-step approach to support the design, establishment, and extension of an effective and rational integrated pest management program.

The basic procedures involve first answering questions about the pest, its ecology, and the extent of its impact as the foundation for then developing, testing, and refining a management system. The step-wise procedures, paraphrased from Dr. Kogan's lecture notes, are:

IDENTIFY the target pest or pest complex.

SURVEY information for the targeted pest's biology and ecology, including its natural enemies.

SELECT AND TEST a method to sample and monitor popula- tions of the target pest.

ASSESS the nature and impact of any of the target pest's natural enemies present under local conditions.

CONSIDER all available pest management methods or tactics.

DESIGN a comprehensive management strategy that de-emphasizes chemical-only methods.

PILOT TEST the strategy under both controlled experimental and on-farm field conditions.

EVALUATE outcomes and, through feedback concerning biologi- cal, economic, and social impacts, adjust the strategy de- signed in step #6.

DEVELOP education and training programs to extend the IPM strategy to end-users. FMI: M.

This year's 0,000 Wolf Price in Agriculture was coawarded to Israeli scientist I. Chet for innovations in the use of fungi and other microorganisms to protect crops from diseases and insects, and for "contributing to the spread of ecologically sound approaches to agriculture." .... A team of scientists at the West African Rice Development Association has developed a new type of rice plant with improved ability to successfully compete with weeds.

.... Karnal bunt (or partial bunt), a fungal disease of certain cereal crops, was originally reported during 1931 in wheat-growing areas near the city of Karnal in India's Haryana State. It has now spread across India and to other countries.

.... A U.S. government study based on 1993 data estimated that the aggregate cost (yield loss and other impacts) of banning 2,4-D and all other phenoxy herbicides in the U.S. would be approximately US.3 billion the first production year, but decreasing as growers and marketers adjusted to the new situation.
