IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Pest Management Shifting to IPM by K.M. Maredia Globally, pest management programs in agriculture are in transition from a state of dependence on chemical pesticides toward a more balanced approach relying on a broad range of pest control strategies. In this situation, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has garnered increasing attention as a potential means of ameliorating commodity losses to pests while reducing reliance on chemical pest control, thereby enhancing the long-term sustainability of agroecosystems.

IPM is a comprehensive approach to pest management that utilizes multiple strategies to reduce or prevent pest problems. IPM is knowledge-based, requiring of its practitioners a practical grounding in the biology of the relevant pest species (insects, pathogens, weeds), as well as an understanding of environmental cohesiveness of whole agroecosystems and contiguous ecosystems.

IPM programs include several key steps:

Detecting a pest; Identifying the species; Understanding the biology and ecology of pests and beneficial organisms; Measuring economic significance; Selecting, integrating, and implementing control methods; and, Evaluating a pest management program. IPM is a systems approach to the design, use and continued evaluation of pest management procedures that result in favorable socioeconomic and environmental consequences. The fundamental importance of IPM is evidenced in its recent adoption as a basic tenet of the sustainable agriculture movement.

Mulch Impedes Weeds, Aids Crop Growth Data from two years of field tests in California's desert-like Coachella Valley support a preliminary conclusion that certain cover crops can produce enough biomass during the hot summer months to function as a mulch during the following fall cropping season and thereby effectively reduce the need for herbicides and fertilizers. Using Vigna unguiculata (L) Walp. (cowpea) as the cover crop and mulch, scientists at the Univ. of California, Riverside, planted Capsicum annuum L. (bell pepper) as a crop in a split plot design to determine the mulch's impact on crop plant growth as well as its influence on weed activity.

Not only were there fewer weed plants in the mulched plots over the season compared to conventional treatments, the crop plants in the mulched plots tended to be larger, suggesting a positive not negative result of growing within the cover crop.

IPM: A Priority in Asian Rice Production Cambodia, as most other Southeast Asian nations, relies heavily on rice production, a crop whose health and yield are keenly sensitive to a variety of pests. IPM has thus become a top priority, a point reflected in the recently issued Cambodia-IRRI-Australia Project (CIAP) ANNUAL RESEARCH REPORT 1997 which devotes approximately 20 percent of its 183 pages to the thriving CIAP IPM Program CIAP comprises a collaborative effort between IRRI (the International Rice Research Institute), the Cambodian government, and the Australian Agency of International Development. During 1997 the Project was active in 20 Cambodian provinces and municipalities.

The CIAP IPM program conducted "research, training, and extension activities to advance the basic understanding of rice pest ecology, improve pest control practices, and contribute to the ultimate development of a practical IPM system appropriate for Cambodian rice farmers," the report states.

Program research confirmed the fact that there was no significant yield difference between treated and untreated plots due to insect damage or insecticide applications; farmers' pesticide practices did not increase yields. Only the incidence of weeds had a clear (negative) effect on crop yield.

For the past four years the CIAP IPM Program has maintained a database of reported pest outbreaks throughout Cambodia. From these reports, patterns have emerged; certain pests tend to occur at particular times of the year. The aggregated data have been distilled into "A Rice Pest Calendar for Cambodia," summarizing the typical periodic occurrence of lowland rice pests and providing a useful resource for timing pest management practices.

Beyond the pest occurrence calendar, a series of practical, wide-ranging pest management recommendations were formulated based on a combination of research results and farmer practices.

GLOBAL IPM NEWS NOTES * The City of Toronto (Canada) has turned to a multi-practice urban IPM approach to reduce pesticide use and increase the effectiveness of its program to contain and manage a pair of pernicious insect pests, Xanthogaleruca luteola (elm leaf beetle) and Fenusa ulmi (elm leaf miner). The October 1998 issue of THE IPM PRACTITIONER offers full details. > E-mail: birc@igc.apc.org. * At its recent annual meeting, the Entomology Society of America presented its Award for Excellence in IPM to J.H. Benedict, a staff research professional in the Dept. of Entomology at Texas A&M Univ. (USA). Among his many accomplishments, Benedict was honored for his pioneering scientific discoveries involving utilization of Bacillus thuringiensis in cotton plants to reduce pesticide applications for lepidopteran pests. > See: ESA Newsletter 21(11), November 1998. E-mail: pubs@entsoc.org.

* Organizations in New Zealand have adopted "KiwiGreen" as a banner for producing Actinidia chinensis (kiwi fruit) through IPM involving a combination of monitoring, thresholds, reduced usage of pesticides, and introduction of biocontrols.

* Researchers at the Institute for Environmental Studies in THE NETHERLANDS, in a study commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Environment, are surveying European nations to find out whether farmers' use of pesticides traditionally influenced by public policy has been impacted by recent initiatives launched by the food processing industry and retail trade. A questionnaire is being circulated to gain information leading to an "inventory of relevant corporate initiatives in most European countries." > F. den Hond, IVM/VU, Provisorium I, De Boelelaan 1115, 1081 HV Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS E-mail: f.d_hond@scw.vu.nl Fax: 31-20-4449553.

The two infest many crops, can rapidly overrun a field, and are unaffected by most herbicides. However, during a 1997, one-day conference on nutsedge biology and management, several presentations discussed numerous cultural and other control possibilities. Proceedings of the event, which covered field, vegetable, vine, tree, turf, and ornamental crops, now have been placed on the web at: cnas.ucr.edu/%7ebps/hnutsedge.htm. WORKSHOP FOR INTRODUCTION OF BENEFICIALS The Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, recently established a list-server for an internet "workshop on research needs for assessing and reducing non-target impacts of biological control introductions." The electronic workshop is designed to promote discussion among researchers involved with ths problem. While discussions will generally emphasize introductions of arthropods to control arthropod pests and weeds, other sorts of introductions will also be included. The plan is for the workshop to last 6-12 months followed by distribution of a summary of the discussions that develop within the workshop's framework. Initially, the list is open and unmoderated.
