IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Neem Conference Draws International Interest Convened during May 1999, NEEM 99 - THE WORLD NEEM CONFERENCE focused on Azadiracta indica (Indian neem tree) and the use and potential for neem-based products in pest management. Conference coordinator M.B. Isman generously provided the information that follows. IPMnet greatly appreciates Dr. Isman's contribution. The event, the 6th international neem meeting, was held at the Univ. of British Columbia, Vancouver, CANADA, and attracted 125 participants representing 23 countries, 60 percent being from other than North America. Previous international neem meetings have been held in Germany (2), Kenya, India, and Australia. The conference highlighted the biology and utilization of neem derivatives. Though many of the 14 plenary papers, 42 contributed papers, and 20 posters dealt with neem insecticides and their role in IPM systems, other topics, such as the medicinal uses of neem extracts and the role of neem in agroforestry, also were reviewed.

An exciting and potentially valuable new development is the discovery of antifungal principles in neem oil and leaves that may lead to commercialization of a new generation of botanical fungicides for agricultural use, following the paradigm of neem-based insecticides. Another important development is the use of neem insecticides to protect high-value forest trees from insect-caused defoliation through ULV aerial application or via systemic action following stem injection.

Neem insecticides should see increasing usage for food production in the USA due to implementation of new, strict food quality regulations. Several conference co-sponsors are either already marketing neem insecticides in the USA, or expect to do so in the near future.

Elsewhere, several small companies in the U.K., Scandinavia, Africa, and the Caribbean have developed neem-based insecticides for regional use. The neem tree itself continues to be widely propagated outside of its native India, with large plantations being established in Australia, Hawaii, Mexico, and Africa.

Vector and disease control is another potential important use of neem. Neem insecticides are potent insect growth regulators against mosquito larvae; neem oil and other derivatives can be effective personal repellents against biting adult mosquitoes; and certain neem fractions have antimalarial action.

Proceedings of the conference with full papers are expected to be published early in 2000, and Indian delegates proposed that a subsequent neem conference be held in their country in 2002. FMI: M.B.

New Forum for Insect IPM Extends Invitation The Kenya-based International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) recently announced establishment of a web based forum titled "IPMAfrica," though limited to insect-related subjects, and extended both a regional and global invitation for participation. The colorful site, located at: informatics.icipe.org/AfricaIPM/, almost buzzes itself with moving type and other visual tricks. Developed by the Centre's Insect Informatics section and sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development Africa Bureau and ICIPE through the IPM Information Partnership, the site offers access for discussion and information sharing through a free registration process. Postings are encouraged within a series of insect subject categories. FMI: Y.

GLOBAL IPM NOTES ## The U.S. state of California recently announced !!news_content!!.73 million in Pest Management Alliance program grants to fund ten large-scale projects aimed at reducing the use of high-risk pesticides in production of cotton, tree fruit, almonds, rice, walnuts, sugar beets, seeds, and cut flowers. This program, now in its second year, is designed to encourage broad adoption of pest management techniques that reduce pesticide risks to workers, consumers, and the environment. > D. Supkoff, dsupkoff@cdpr.ca.gov. ## In the U.S., the growing environmental and economic threat of invasive species, such as the weed Euphorbia esula (leafy spurge), has spawned the creation of an Invasive Species Council co-chaired by the federal secretaries of the Departments of Agriculture, Interior, and Commerce. The Council will coordinate the federal strategy to combat invasive species and identify ways to prevent their introduction and spread in the U.S. Meanwhile, President Clinton's proposed budget for fiscal year 2000 includes an increase of more than US.8 million to counteract and prevent invasive species.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information PUBLICATIONS AUTHORS, EDITORS, AND PUBLISHERS

IPMnet NEWS welcomes mentioning any publication, or CD, related to, or focused on, IPM. To assure coverage, please send a review copy of the publication, with full information where to obtain copies, data about the author/editor(s), and any other particulars or descriptive materials to:

IPMnet NEWS, c/o Integrated Plant Protection Center 2040 Cordley Hall, Oregon State University Corvallis, OR 97331-2915, USA After review, materials will be cataloged into the joint CICP/IPPC international IPM and crop protection literature collection (which the worldwide IPM/crop protection community is welcome to use), or returned if so requested.



PLANT VIRAL DISEASE REFERENCE An international authors group led by D.D. Sutic has prepared the HANDBOOK OF PLANT VIRUS DISEASES, a comprehensive information compendium of viral-caused and viral-like diseases in many cultivated crops worldwide. The hardbound, 1999 text presents authoritative discussions including symptoms, illustrated with black and white photos, and listings of identification characteristics that support understanding of plant virus diseases and correlate with instituting effective control. The work's 553 pages also offer: an extensive list of references; lists for geographic distribution, host range, symptoms, and pathogensis for each virus; and an improved and revised acronym list. FMI: CRC Press, 2000 NW Corporate Blvd., Boca Raton, FL 33431-9868, USA E-mail: VCash@crcpress.com Fax: 1-561-998-9114 Phone: 1-561-994-0555 Website: www.crcpress.com. CONTAINMENT FACILITY DESIGN Until the American Phytopathological Society (APS) published CONTAINMENT FACILITIES FOR EXOTIC PLANT PATHOGENS AND PESTS, information concerning facility design has been scattered throughout literature, obscure reports, and private files. Editors R.P. Kahn and S.B. Mathur have changed all that by compiling a work that includes actual floor plans and other important aspects of numerous existing facilities. The hardbound publication includes 75 black/white illustrations and draws on the experience and contributions of 51 global specialists. In its 220 pages, this comprehensive volume offers a multinational view of containment facility use and safeguard procedures.

FUNGICIDE ADVANCES REPORTED Ranging from the impact and development of new technologies to the potential of biological controls, the proceedings of the 1998 Reinhardsbrun Symposia cover the leading edge of fungicide science, and have been published as MODERN FUNGICIDES AND ANTIFUNGAL COMPOUNDS II, edited by H. Lyr, et al. The 505-page, hardbound volume's seven sections address integrated control of plant diseases, as well as managing fungicide resistance, natural products and biological control, plus more.

MANAGING ORCHARD INSECT PESTS Nearly 200 full color photos spread throughout 288 pages of practical information, coupled with a reader-friendly design, not only made ORCHARD PEST MANAGEMENT, A RESOURCE BOOK FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST a comprehensive tree fruit insect pest identification and management reference source with much broader geographical application, but a widely sought-after title when it first appeared in 1993. Now, after being out of print for several years, the softcover title edited by entomologist E.H. Beers, et al, has been reprinted with limited changes and is again available at a nominal cost. The text introduces IPM concepts and strategies and then provides directly related useful data. FMI: Good Fruit Grower, 105 S. 18th St., Suite 217, Yakima, WA 98901-2149, USA E-mail: getit@goodfruit.com Fax: 1-509-453-4880 Phone: 1-509-575-2315 Website: www.goodfruit.com. Publication Special Once in a while, a publication appears that is a standout: loaded with practical information, straightforward, clearly written, attractively illustrated and designed; in other words, well worth a second (or even third) mention. The review below appeared in IPMnet NEWS #48, December 1997; however, the publication is still a valuable "must have" reference for anybody concerned with weed management options involving cultivation and mechanical means. If the term "MWC" is unrecognized, it will become amply clear after reading STEEL IN THE FIELD, A FARMER'S GUIDE TO WEED MANAGEMENT TOOLS. The 128-page, 1997 book focuses on "mechanical weed control" and promotes the concept that utilization of mechanical cultivating and weeding including flaming, when integrated into a carefully crafted overall weed management approach, can significantly reduce reliance on herbicides and increase grower profits. The softbound volume's goal, says its publisher, is to provide information about how each of the many implement classes works in the field and in sustainable weed management systems. Editor G. Bowman has drawn on the experience of over 20 successful growers and a knowledgeable group of specialists to describe a wide range of rotary hoes, various mechanical weeders, cultivators, flamers, and related equipment. Clear line drawings illustrate the equipment considered. A reasoned discussion covers the cons as well as the pros of MWC. This is an eminently readable, informative, and highly useful book. FMI: A. Clark, c/o AFSIC, Room 304, NAL, 10301 Baltimore Ave., Beltsville, MD 20705-2351, USA Fax: 1-301-504-6409 E-mail: san@nal.usda.gov Phone: 1-301-304-6425 Website: www.ces.ncsu.edu/san/. Publication & CD Notes The U.S. State of New York's IPM Program marked completion of another productive year with publication of its 1999 ANNUAL REPORT. The softbound, tastefully illustrated 40-page report, in addition to listing IPM projects, presents a series of IPM activity vignettes that include useful details for specific crops. In another section, growers recount their experiences with field application of IPM tactics.

EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS BIRD SCARE RIBBON Flexible, mirror-like strips of mylar ribbon placed throughout vine, tree, or row crops move with air currents, sharply reflect the sun's rays, and help frighten away avian pests according to the product's U.S. manufacturer. The highly visible, one-inch (2.5 cm) wide, lightweight ribbon (or "tape") also crackles as it moves, adding to its impact. The strong, two-sided ribbon is available in 500 ft. (152 m.) lengths as chrome/chrome, or chrome/red configurations. FMI: G. Brown, Adcock Mfg.

TRACTOR CABS BLOCK OUT SPRAY An international equipment manufacturer says its new "spray-ready cabs" for its tractors permit operators to apply sprays "in comfort without a respirator and chemical suit." The cabs are slightly pressurized, including a pressure monitoring device, and fitted with carbon-based filters to both trap particulates and adsorb vapors. The system is also said to virtually eliminate entry of all pollen, mold, silica, grain dust, and most airborne allergens.
