IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Forum Focuses on IPM for Africa An electronic forum established in 1998, AFRIK-IPM, offers a means of networking and information sharing between IPM professionals throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and beyond, according to the sponsor, the IPM Collaborative Research and Support Program (CRSP) at Virginia Tech in the USA. The CRSP is sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development through its Africa Bureau. The forum's primary goal, note co-moderators J-P. Amirault and C. Ssekewa, "is to serve as a communication channel for IPM and related agricultural interests within Africa." AFRIK-IPM is operational in English and French, and is open to all individuals "who have an active interest in promoting IPM research and information dissemination related to Africa," according to its website which can be found at: www.cals.vt.edu/ail/afrik-ipm.htm.

Topics covered primarily relate to IPM, but also include discussions concerning the broader field of crop protection. The forum arose in connection with the IPM Communications Workshop: Eastern/Southern Africa, held in Kenya during March 1998, but has been revised and expanded. Individuals use e-mail to join the forum following instructions on the website, or by sending the message "subscribe afrik-ipm" to the e-mail address: LISTSERVE@LISTSERV.VT.EDU leaving the subject line blank.

CABI Restructures Bioscience Institutes The UK-based CAB International (CABI, formerly the Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux) has merged several of its internationally recognized scientific institutes into a new entity, CABI Bioscience, to "better address the needs of the 21st century," according to a recent report. The merged scientific institutesdedicated to entomology, biological control, parasitology, and mycologywill, the report noted, integrate CABI's "worldwide scientific activities in the characterization and utilization of biodiversity, biological pest management, and environmental conservation."

While the former International Institute of Biological Control (IIBC) has gone out of existence and its field stations in the Caribbean, Kenya, UK, Pakistan, Switzerland, and Malaysia have been reconstituted as CABI Bioscience Centres, the director of the new Biological Pest Management (BPM) program within CABI Bioscience said that the overall activity will be strengthened. Writing in the IIBC Annual Report for 1997, the last report to be so titled, director J.K. Waage observed that, "IIBC's former biological control activity will be substantially enhanced by closer co-ordination with biosystematics expertise in nematode, fungal, bacterial, and insect biological control agents" and association with "groups involved in biological management of plant diseases and nematodes and the management of insect pests by entomophilic nematodes."

The new BPM program will focus on five areas: biological control of invertebrate pests, weed biological control, biopesticides, biology and management of plant diseases and nematodes, and IPM training and implementation.

Areawide Pesticide Reduction Program Honored The Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. government presented its ARS Technology Transfer Award for 1998 to a team of researchers, extensionists, and field personnel participating in a collaborative three-state program that devised and conducted an innovative areawide program to reduce the use of organophosphate pesticides in commercial orchards. ARS Regional Director A.A. Betschart, in announcing the award, said it recognized the effort conducted in key Western U.S. fruit growing states "for successfully implementing the areawide program for suppression of the codling moth which has demonstrated that mating disruption is a viable and sustainable alternative to chemical pest control."

The areawide program was devised to apply mating disruption techniques against the codling motha major and highly persistent pest in the targeted orchard areasin a coordinated, contiguous block of land. Results through 1997 revealed dramatic reductions in both pesticide usage and cost per land unit, according to materials filed with the ARS.

Both federal and state personnel (from Washington, Oregon, and California), and field representatives were recognized by the ARS award for "a significant level of achievement in transferring technology related to areawide suppression of the codling moth." The program was launched in 1994 and will operate through 1999.

Institute Emphasizes IPM Programs From its headquarters at Ibadan, NIGERIA, the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) marshals an array of research and organizational IPM programs both locally and worldwide with potential to create a massive impact on global agriculture and related activities. Foremost, IITA serves as the convening organization for the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research's (CGIAR or CG) "Systemwide Program on Integrated Pest Management" that involves many of the Group's 16 research organizations situated worldwide plus numerous national programs.

The goal of the systemwide IPM effort is: "To ensure, by encouraging better communication, coordination, and the adoption of more effective approaches, that CG research on integrated pest management (IPM) is more responsive to the needs of IPM practitioners, gains wider recognition, and thereby contributes fully to sustainable agriculture."

Within the systemwide framework, several IITA programs involve research on IPM techniques and strategies, such as integrated management of cassava (Manihot esculenta) pests and diseases, integrated management of Striga hermonthica and other parasitic plants, and application of IPM within improved systems to improve several important tropical crops.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Mating Disruption Economics Studied Mating disruption to control pest insects in orchards can be viewed as a promising method for reducing usage of organophosphate pesticides used in spraying programs while maintaining pest populations at acceptable levels. Well and good, but what about the important aspect of economics: how do costs of spraying (only) programs and mating disruption programs compare? A farm advisor in an intensive pear (Pyrus communis L.) orchard area of central California offers a brief, factual cost study that, while based on a specific set of circumstances for a particular area and set of conditions, provides an interesting comparison. Farm advisor C. Ingels, reported that in this instance costs were determined to be roughly equal.

The main benefit, Mr. Ingels writes, was that mating disruption conserved beneficial insects that could, in turn, help reduce pest management costs for other pests such as mites. He noted that "there is potentially considerable savings in a mating disruption program."

QUOTES "Integrated pest management (IPM) is a site-specific, multitactic decision-making process for the management of pests that is profitable for the grower, and promotes health and environmental quality." Washington State (USA) Horticultural Association's Tree Fruit IPM Work Group. IPMporium ... Add to the list of vertebrate weed controlling species those in the genus Camelus who, under certain conditions, eat forbs and brushy plants and leave forage grasses for cattle or sheep. ... Scientists have isolated a nematode-resistant gene from tomato that also seems to confer resistance against aphids.

... An international tractor maker offers pressurized cabs with filtered air that, together, allow operators to forego wearing respirators during pesticide application, but still be fully protected.

... Promising tests of spraying a water suspension of kaolin (clay) seemed to deter pest insects and diseases in orchards and may offer another tactic for fruit tree IPM.

INSECTS, TEMPERATURE, AND IPM A new work, TEMPERATURE SENSITIVITY IN INSECTS AND APPLICATION IN INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT, explores, analyzes, and describes an array of IPM tools that exploit extreme temperature as a component for managing both pest and beneficial insects. Authors G.J. Hallman and D.L. Denlinger undertook this intriguing work to investigate alternatives to fumigants and as an avenue to reducing pesticide residues. The authors note that the use of temperature to regulate populations "has received little notice in most other IPM tomes." The 311-page, hardbound, 1998 work offers both an overview of heat biophysics as well as a discussion of using temperatures in pest management programs.

FIELDS OF CHANGE, "A New Crop of American Farmers Finds Alternatives to Pesticides," by J. Curtis, offers a series of profiles, plus contributed data, and background information, to support the thesis that real people can successfully follow low, or no pesticide use regimes with little, if any, lost yield. The text, curiously, refers to "efficient, chemical-intensive IPM strategies," and associates IPM with "alternative agriculture" thereby inexplicably ignoring its expanding global employment.
