IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Program Seeks Maize that Resists Striga A major international foundation, in collaboration with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture and other research organizations, has initiated a global research thrust to develop maize varieties for Africa that resist the devastating predations of Striga spp. parasitic weeds. The concept: focus the facilities and energies of a diverse scientific group on solving a specific, challenging problem involving crop yield loss. The Rockefeller Foundation has used the approach successfully in the past; recent advances in maize transformation now trigger cautious hope that research breakthroughs can lead to new varieties that resist Striga.

Writing in a recent issue of the IWSS (International Weed Science Society) NEWSLETTER, J.D, DeVries, et al note that, "In spite of years of agronomic and genetic research, the parasitic weed Striga spp. continues to ravage the maize fields of sub-Saharan Africa." A December 1997 meeting in Kenya led to formation of an international Striga Working Group and a plan to facilitate ongoing research in: breeding, biotechnology, cropping systems, and technology transfer all aimed at reducing Striga's impact in Africa.

A research strategy was formulated that is broadly based on: a) reducing the presence and impact of Striga; and, b) developing maize plant resistance. A number of specific actions are called for under each of the two main categories including everything from hand-pulling to transfer of genes that confer resistance.

The authors conclude that, given the deep concern over food security in Africa, "there is a sense of urgency regarding the need for solutions to be advanced to farmers as quickly as possible."

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Brazilian Congress Focuses on IPM With a theme of "Integrated Pest Management: A Global Reality," the 17th Congress of the Brazilian Entomological Society (Sociedade Entomologica do Brasil, SEB) convened in August 1998 and attracted over 1,500 participants from across Brazil and beyond. A 2-volume printed, bound compilation of abstracts (in Portuguese) for the 1,041 submitted papers was produced and copies given to attendees at registration.

"It was obvious that IPM was the main thrust of entomological research in Brazil," observed M. Kogan, director of the Integrated Plant Protection Center at Oregon State Univ., who was invited to present the opening address at the Congress.

Dr. Kogan also noted that, "The biennial event is evolving into a focal point of entomological research information exchange for all Latin America. This National Congress," Kogan said, "provided a preview of the enthusiasm, technical capacity, and organizational skills that are being mobilized towards the XXI International Congress of Entomology, to be held in Foz do Iguacu, Parana, Brazil, in 2,000."

PRACTICAL BIOCONTROL ILLUSTRATED From its attractive and informative front cover right through 164 information-laden pages, the Univ. of California's 1998 publication, NATURAL ENEMIES HANDBOOK The Illustrated Guide to Biological Pest Control, stands as possibly the most useful practical resource for biocontrol currently available today. Authors M.L. Flint and S.H. Dreistadt, backed by a host of technical editors, advisors, and reviewers, have included virtually every insect, mite, and spider family important in biological control, and illustrated each with a taxonomically correct line drawing or color photo. The softbound (hardbound available) work contains 180 color photographs and 140 line drawings for hundreds of predators, parasites, and pathogens that attack pests. Beyond the visual, the handbook, while technical, provides information in a straight-forward manner that helps users find, identify, and deploy natural enemies. The comprehensive and authoritative work covers pest weeds, insects, pathogens, nematodes, and mites. A "biological pest control quick guide" section identifies those natural enemies most likely to help control a specific pest species. As with other earlier volumes in the Univ. of California Statewide IPM Program publication series, NATURAL ENEMIES HANDBOOK (pub. #3386) represents an excellent value for the depth of information provided.

The 312-page work, prepared by D.E. Johnson, offers nearly 190 color photos, plus line drawings, of the principal weed species found in upland and lowland rice in West Africa. Attractively presented and with a weather-resistant plastic jacket, this 1997 volume was designed to assist extensionists and researchers with weed identification, but could well be useful to anyone involved with weed management in rice production. Beyond weed identification, the text discusses ecology and weed management strategies, especially for the most noxious weed species. FMI: D.E.

Research involving crop canopy management, weed suppression, and crop yield loss prediction is aimed at reducing the need for herbicide application. Another thrust is focused on understanding the role of wheat crop architecture and development in epidemics of leaf blotch caused by Septoria tritici, a highly damaging foliar fungal disease of wheat in Western Europe. The balanced, 92-page, full color report succinctly chronicles these and numerous other IACR initiatives underway. FMI: R. Atkin, IACR-Rothamsted, Harpenden, Herts.

OTHER RESOURCES U.S. PEST INFORMATION KNOWLEDGEBASE The National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) incorporates a wide range of U.S. national plant pest survey data and is an electronic compilation of information formerly published in hardcopy form. NAPIS serves as the database for the U.S. government's Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey. The NAPIS gateway website at www.ceris.purdue.edu:80/napis/ is a key entry point for accessing a variety of material, both current and older, on specific pest species. An extensive portion of the included information, while based on U.S. conditions, also has international applicability. FMI: J.

The site, "Codling Moth Information Support System" (CMISS), is designed to provide information for research and extension and is found at: www.ippc.orst.edu/codlingmoth. One CMISS list contains 6,500 references blanketing the literature from 1700 to 1998. Several other sections are devoted to various control strategies, as well as phenology and population dynamics...even how the little rascal got its name. A generalized degree-day calculator on CMISS can be used worldwide to forecast codling moth phenology under local conditions. The site was designed and prepared by W.I. Bajwa under sponsorship of the Integrated Plant Protection Center (USA) in concert with the U.S. Agricultural Research Service. FMI: W.I.

FMI: JPPA, 1-43-11, Komagome, Toshima-ku, Tokyo 170-8484, JAPAN. A related group, the Japan Crop Protection Association, has established a companion website at: www.jcpa.or.jp EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS For Predators & Parasites: New Delivery Systems While the use of biocontrol agents to help manage pest species holds the potential to reduce reliance on pesticides and gain other advantages, the practice continues to face a major challenge of effectively and economically attracting or introducing the desired agents into a targeted field, orchard, vineyard, etc. Two intriguing new developments promise to expedite the delivery process and thereby lower, if not remove, a barrier to broader use of biocontrol. A design team in California has developed a launching device that flings small, lightweight, disc-shaped containers of predators or parasites into the target area. The device officially labeled the "Aerodynamic Transport Body for Distribution of Biological Agents," or ATB uses disks designed with an appropriate exit for the beneficials to use when the disk lands. Disks can be made from any of several fast degrading materials that, says team leader L.M. Carter, "will deteriorate naturally after a few rains or after the field is irrigated a few times."

An ATB unit can be mounted on a variety of vehicles which then travel along beside a field dispensing disks. The process is said to be much faster than manually placing containers of biocontrollers in an area, and obviously less labor intensive. Operating from the perimeter of the field also reduces soil compaction and lowers the potential for physically spreading weed seeds, among other benefits.

The second device, the Mite Meter, dispenses a controlled stream of predatory mites that attack insects frequently found in cotton. The meter mounts on a tractor or other vehicle and can be calibrated to discharge from 500 to 20,000 biocontrol mites per ac. (or ha.) along with an inert carrier material such as vermiculite. Tests found that 95 percent of the predators survived the metering process and the short drop from exit point of the meter to the surface of the field.

The Mite Meter, as with the ATB, offers several potential advantages such as pre-loading tanks of predators directly at an insectary, infrequent stops to refill the tank because of the small volume being dispensed, and cost reductions in both material and labor.
