IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs AUSTRALIA UNVEILS NATIONAL AG-VET CHEMICALS STRATEGY As a major global producer and exporter of primary produce, and to ensure protection of human health and the environment, AUSTRALIA has developed and recently made public a forward-looking national strategy for managing agricultural and veterinary (ag-vet) chemicals so as to: ensure long-term sustainability of agricultural productivity; minimize risks to health, the environment, and trade; and, best contribute to national prosperity. The comprehensive national strategy is built on a foundation of nine action points covering a variety of issues and including a clear call for reducing reliance on chemicals through development and adoption of IPM involving integration of various pest management tactics. Another key point promotes the "development and adoption of integrated farm, forest, and natural resource planning and management systems (including catchment management) that minimize adverse impacts and use chemicals only as needed."

The points, as well as the extensive process followed to gather stakeholder opinions prior to preparing the strategy, are fully set forth in a handsome, succinctly organized publication, MANAGEMENT OF AGRICULTURAL AND VETERINARY CHEMICALS: A NATIONAL STRATEGY. The 60-page, softbound, 1998 work includes full color plates and an appealing design to explain the vision, goals, and need for the strategy. The publication is intended as a bridge to implement the strategy and a road map so all involved can contribute to an ag-vet chemical use focused on a modern national consensus. The strategy document (in electronic form) is available on the web at:

STUDY REPORTS U.S. PEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES A just-released government pest management practices study reveals that U.S. agricultural/horticultural growers now utilize either crop rotation or pest scouting as their primary pest management tactic, depending on the crop grown and region of the country. The report, 1997 PEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES, produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), includes information on the percent of acres, and farms, that used selected management practices to control crop pests such as insects, weeds, and diseases. The report is based on questions included in a late 1997 nationwide survey; a similar survey is planned for December 1998.

Results are reported by crop category. For example, crop rotation to control pests was employed on 69 percent of the acres used for growing maize nationwide (80+ million ac, 32+ million ha) followed by pest scouting (47 percent). Scouting was the leading pest management practice for cotton at 75 percent of all acres, as it was on land growing fruits and nuts.

The report grouped survey responses under four broad pest management categories: prevention, avoidance, monitoring, and suppression. Data tables separated the percent of area (acres) receiving a specific practice, and percent of farms utilizing a practice. Regional differences emerged within the various crop categories: 64 percent of all-wheat farms in the northeast rotated crops whereas only 27 percent in the south did.

Copies of the report can be printed (free) from the web site: usda.mannlib.cornell.edu/reports/nassr/other/pest/pestan98.pdf. Hard copies can be ordered by phone from: 1-800-727-9540. For more information contact: B. Pratt; e-mail bpratt@nass.usda.gov Phone: 1-202-720-7017

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information PEST MANAGEMENT HISTORY The Pest Management Resource Center (PMRC), a lively and informative website from Wales, UK, now includes a fascinating overview of the "History of Pest Management," listing key events that have had and continued to have a significant impact on agriculture worldwide. The information, in brief outline form, was researched by D. Dent, editor of IPM REVIEWS, and edited by PMRC impresario, P. McEwen. The information is a sobering perspective on the accelerating obsolescence of pest management tactics, mainly due to development of resistance.

The history overview, as well as a great deal of other information, can be found at: www.pestmanagement.co.uk

IPMporium ... Scientists at the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center demonstrated that transgenic tomato plants carrying the coat protein gene from cucumber mosaic virus show resistance to the virus under field conditions. ... Subscribers to a weekly pest scouting report in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania have drastically reduced routine, preventive pesticide spraying, according to a recent news story in the summer 1998 issue of PENNSYLVANIA IPM NEWS.

... A dual "push-pull" strategy successfully developed in Kenya, and accepted by farmers, combines plants unattractive to pest insects (grown next to crop plants) with other plants attractive to pest predators and as a trap crop located a short distance from the crop.

... Sprayable pheromones for more labor-efficiency in pest insect mating disruption strategies for orchards? A cross-discipline collaboration in 1999 may produce some interesting prospects.

PLANT DISEASE SERIES EXPANDS Among the most recent additions to the well-received APS Press series of plant disease compendia are: ** COMPENDIUM OF STRAWBERRY DISEASES, 2nd Edition, edited by J.L. Maas; this extensively revised version of the 1984 first edition includes more information, more full color plates, and greater emphasis on internationally important disease problems such as anthracnose, Botrytis rot, and virus and virus-like diseases. A 4-star roster of international specialists contributed contemporary information to this 1998, 128-page volume.

** COMPENDIUM OF LETTUCE DISEASES, R.M. Davis, et al, eds.; also an international account, though its contributors are predominantly Californians, this informative 96-page effort describes infectious diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, nematodes, and viruses as well as noninfectious disorders related to pollution, allelopathy, bolting, mineral deficiencies and toxicities, pesticide-related injury, rib blight, tipburn, and others. In each instance, the editors provide a thorough overview; the work offers more than 100 color illustrations.

** COMPENDIUM OF CONIFER DISEASES, E.M. Hansen and K.J. Lewis, eds.; as the editors note, this 1997 volume "is the cumulative effort of many forest pathologists" representing regions where conifers are an important resource. In its 128 pages, this compendium differs from others in the series by including a larger, more diverse group of hosts, and addressing diseases over 80 found in both managed forests as well as wild, natural conditions. More than 160 color photos enhance the text.

All the APS compendia are softbound and printed on high quality paperstock. FMI: APS Press, 3340 Pilot Knob Rd., St. Paul, MN 55121-2097, USA E-mail: aps@scisoc.org Fax: 1-651-454-0766 Phone: 1-651-454-7250 Web: www.scisoc.org

INSECT-RESISTANT CROPS Because of its entomological focus, GLOBAL PLANT GENETIC RESOURCES FOR INSECT-RESISTANT CROPS, is said to be a unique addition to the massive existing body of literature regarding the importance and use of genetic materials. In this 1998 work, editors S.L. Clement and S.S. Quisenberry organized the text as crop-based chapters to convey the message that germplasm stocks are an indispensable resource for scientists to utilize in insect resistance evaluation. A distinguished group of specialists contributed to the 295-pg., hardbound volume that views cereal, legume, vegetable, and root/tuber crops.

Heong and M.M. Escalada and published as PEST MANAGEMENT OF RICE FARMERS IN ASIA. The 245-page work describes various methods employed and also serves as a basis for evaluating change, particularly as IRRI and collaborating entities seek to increase acceptance of IPM systems that are almost entirely non-chemical. The 1997, softbound work contains 16 chapters; #16, "A Comparative Analysis of Pest Management Practices of Rice Farmers in Asia," by the editors, summarizes findings and advocates improved communication to provide more useful information as a foundation for decision-making.

III. RESEARCH/TECHNICAL PAPERS research/technical topics related to IPM. NEW: IPMnet NEWS, in support of global IPM and in response to reader feedback, now offers a free service of providing first author mail addresses (for those articles marked with "##" at the end of the citation) to facilitate contacts, requests for reprints, or other interaction. While not every paper is included initially, the NEWS aims to eventually mark (##) every paper mentioned. Interested parties can request first author address information via e-mail from: IPMnetNUZ@bcc.orst.edu or by mail, phone, or fax (see box at end of this issue). As before, IPMnet also can provide mailing addresses for any of the listed journals.

FEATURED PAPER One of the world's weed villains, Euphorbia esula (leafy spurge, or Hungarian spurge) exhibits several negative traits: its latex causes severe dermatitis in humans and grazing animals, and is unpalatable and toxic to cattle and horses. E. esula has become a serious problem in several countries. In "Integrated Control of Leafy Spurge," L. Swiadon, et al describe in depth and detail a range of control strategies that have been used with varying degrees of success. Among the more promising: biocontrol with predaceous insects. The authors conclude that "an integrated program of monitoring, prevention, biological control, grazing, burning, mulching, mowing, cultivation, and herbicide use can be used to manage leafy spurge infestations." excerpted from, THE IPM PRACTITIONER, 20(7), 1-11, July 1998. ##
