IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs U.S. Aids Sub-Saharan Crop Protection Several international agricultural research centers (IARCs) with mandates for improving production of crops grown in sub-Saharan Africa requested assistance to conduct research on components of various crop pest management challenges, prompting the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to respond with a US.0 million program of assistance in fiscal year 1998 for engaging U.S. agricultural scientists in collaborative research partnerships with IARC scientists. The effort is a part of the recently launched ten-year African Food Security Initiative aimed at decreasing child and infant malnutrition, and bolstering rural incomes.

Among the key pest management constraints identified by IARCs as needing collaborative research (out of 11 in total) are:

Developing cassava (Manihot esculenta) that resists both African cassava mosaic virus, and whiteflies; Gaining background data to better understand late blight in potato, leading to design of effective IPM strategies: Identifying and monitoring parasitoids for use in classical biological control programs; Expanding expertise in fruit fly/parasitoid systematics; and, Searching for resistance to sweet potato weevils (Cylas spp.); Up to 10 competitive grants, for 1-3 years and not exceeding US0,000 each, are expected to be awarded in 1998, according to a request for applications issued by USAID. The grants are part of the University/IARC Linkages Program (UNIARCL) conducted by USAID. FMI: J. Oweis, UNIARCL Program, USAID, G/EGAD/AFS, Room 2.11.080, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20523, USA E-mail: joweis@usaid.gov Fax: 1-202-216-3010 Phone: 1-202-712-1367 Pesticide Minimization Promoted A report published in the U.K. suggests that, by reducing pesticide application through a combination of strategies, many British farms can not only improve environmental conditions, but (more importantly for gaining acceptance) realize significant financial gains. Labeled "pesticide minimization," the approach is based on:

increasing biocontrol or cultivation for pest management; using varied crop rotations, delayed sowing, and resistant varieties to decrease the need for pesticide application; and, employing threshold monitoring to reduce pesticide application frequency and rates. The 1997 report, PRIVATE COSTS AND BENEFITS OF PESTICIDE MINIMISATION, by Risk & Policy Analysts, Ltd., states that it is easier to persuade farmers to adopt pesticide minimization if the results show a profit and do not increase risks. The text presents tables for two hypothetical "typical" farm enterprises showing the projected financial savings.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Park Service Conducts Diverse IPM Program With over 80 million ac. (32 million ha.) of land, 45,000 buildings, and cultural landscapes ranging from cropland to historic rose gardens, the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) has encountered, and continues to face, just about every conceivable pest problem. The Service launched an IPM program in the early 1980's, became a leader among U.S. federal agencies for implementing IPM, and recently reported that it has subsequently reduced pesticide usage by over 60 percent while improving pest management effectiveness. NPS adopted an IPM approach involving formal training of staff and provision of a wide variety of informational materials. One of the most comprehensive items among these materials is the NPS INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT MANUAL, a resource offering descriptions of the biology and management of 21 species, or categories, of pest ranging from aphids to exotic weeds, and from rats to pests of museums (beyond the variety that lingers past closing hours).

The manual, now in its second edition, offers useful background descriptions about each included category or pest, coupled with information on recommended management and control strategies. See the web version at: www.colostate.edu/depts/IPM/natparks/natpark.html. FMI: T. Cacek, IPM Coordinator, NPS, Ft. Collins, CO 80523, USA E-mail: terry_cacek@nps.org Phone: 1-970-225-3542

IPMporium ... Scientists working in the U.S. state of Florida have developed mechanisms that cause plants to evoke protective compounds which help ameliorate potentially destructive diseases or thwart other pests. ... Rodolia limbata, a ladybird beetle from northern Australia, has proven to be an effective biocontrol agent for keeping breadfruit mealybugs (Icerya spp.) in check on Pacific atolls.

... The California Pear Advisory Board is providing over US0,00 for insect and disease research in 1998, with emphasis on mating disruption and other IPM strategies.

PRACTICAL IPM TECHNIQUES A 6-panel factsheet published in 1996, INTEGRATED WEED MANAGEMENT, MAKING IT WORK ON YOUR FARM, by D. Kelner, et al, graphically show how diversified crops with varying planting dates and weed management needs can help keep weeds off-balance and stymie pest plants' ability to adapt. While aimed at dryland farms in the Canadian plains, the text offers practical management techniques that have broad relevance. Publication CP10390. FMI: Saskatchewan Agriculture and Food, 3735 Thatcher Avenue, Saskatoon, SK S7K 2H6, CANADA E-mail: pad@sk.sympatico.ca Phone: 1-306-933-5092 GUIDE TO IPM IN GLASS/GREENHOUSES INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FOR BEDDING PLANTS, A SCOUTING AND PEST MANAGEMENT GUIDE, is a no-nonsense, very specific and highly useful information resource for anyone faced with managing the myriad insects, diseases, and weeds found in greenhouse/glasshouse crop production. The 112-page, spiral bound handbook succinctly lays out the steps and techniques for conducting effective IPM programs and uses several case studies to illustrate actual implementation. The volume, edited by C. Casey, is an addition to the top-notch IPM materials published by the New York State IPM Program. FMI: Media Services Resource Center, Cornell Univ., 7 Business and Technology Park, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA E-mail: dist_cent@cce.cornell.edu Phone: 1-607-255-2080 BIOCONTROL RESEARCH INNOVATION Under the banner "Innovation in Biological Control Research," the PROCEEDINGS OF THE CALIFORNIA CONFERENCE ON BIOLOGICAL CONTROL, convened in June 1998 at the Univ. of California, Berkeley, presents 61 papers describing current investigation of biocontrol ranging from vertebrates to diseases. The softbound, 245-page work was edited by M.S. Hoddle. FMI: M.S.

The work presents extensive useful details and references. Spiral bound, 207 pages, all text, 1996. FMI: WSU-Puyallup, 7612 Pioneer Way East, Puyallup, WA 98371-4998, USA E-mail: bobbitt@wsu.edu Phone: 1-253-445-4547 BIOCONTROL PRIMER AND CATALOG Billed as "the original bio-control primer," THE GREEN METHODS MANUAL takes a light-hearted and informative view of how to carry out biocontrol while simultaneously offering readers a wide selection of the needed equipment and materials (via mail-order). The 238-page, softbound work by M.S. Cherim (edition IV for 1998) is a graphically attractive work. Readers, once they get past the manual's reference to "bugs," its breezy text style, and its clear anti-chemical bias, can find considerable useful information. FMI: The Green Spot, Ltd., Publishing Division, 93 Priest Road, Nottingham, NH 03290-6204, USA Fax: 1-603-942-8932 E-mail: grnspt@internetMCI.com Phone: 1-603-942-8925 WEEDS IN ASIAN RICE: A CRITIQUE OF STRATEGIES The rapid adoption and ofttimes indiscriminate use of herbicide-based weed control in Asia triggered concerns culminating in a 1994 international conference that sought to foster a broader overview and a more balanced approach. Papers from this event, fleshed out with additional material, became HERBICIDES IN ASIAN RICE: TRANSITIONS IN WEED MANAGEMENT, edited by R. Naylor, and published in 1996 by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). The 270-page, soft-bound work is dedicated to K. Moody, long-time international weed scientist. While proposing a more balanced weed management strategy, the text will annoy some readers by using terms such as "good and bad weeds." Addressing risk, the work focuses on chemical usage while ignoring the severe socio-economic consequences that can result from unwanted plants competing with crop plants. It's also a credibility stretch to get past the cover illustration: of the 10 chemical containers shown, one can't be identified, four are insecticides, one is a fungicide, and just four are herbicides.

Jolivet, aims to summarize in an understandable way the basis of food selection among insects and to review the various aspects of their relationships with plants. The hardbound, 309-page volume also discusses plant adaptations and "behavior" in response to insects. Line drawings and an exhaustive reference list are included.

Created by an editorial team led by R.R. Harwood, the all full color volume focuses on the biological basis of sustainability and, of course, in the process devotes attention to pest management. Edited by M.A. Cavigelli, the softbound, 92-page, 1998 work offers a practical framework for achieving on-farm movement toward sustainable practices. Refer to: MSU Ext. Bull E-2646. FMI: R.R.

OTHER RESOURCES IPM ELECTRONIC DATABASE GROWS With a goal of promoting global IPM development and adoption through rapid access to information scattered all across the Internet, the DATABASE OF IPM RESOURCES (DIR) now receives 1,400 "hits" daily and serves more than 100 users every day, according to an independent report from Webtrends. DIR, sponsored by the Consortium for International Crop Protection, has proven to be extremely reliable; of the 335,000 "hits" during the 8-month period surveyed, less than 3 percent failed. DIR has collected several internet awards along the way and has become a keystone for electronic IPM information delivery. DIRmeister W.I. Bajwa continues to add links and install new wrinkles to make searching and finding information even faster and less tedious. DIR can be found, and used, at: www.IPMnet.org/DIR. NEMATODE CONTROL Among several publications offered on-line by ATTRA (Appropriate Technology Transfer for Rural Areas), a U.S. government funded program, ALTERNATIVE NEMATODE CONTROL offers useful information on a class of widely disbursed pests.
