IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Rigorous New Program Offers Broad Based Degree A well-regarded U.S. landgrant university recently announced establishment of a unique, rigorous, 3-year, post-baccalaureate, graduate, interdisciplinary and interdepartmental Doctor of Plant Medicine (DPM) Degree Program designed to educate and train practitioner "plant doctors" in a parallel track equivalent to MDs and veterinarians in the sister professions of human medicine and veterinary medicine. Graduates of the Univ. of Florida's new DPM program are not intended to become researchers, but will be trained to diagnose, and to offer recommendations for management-control of, any condition that adversely affects plants: disease pathogens (fungi, bacteria, viruses, phytoplasmas), insects, weeds, mites, nematodes, nutrient deficiencies and toxicities, toxic air and soil pollutants, pH, temperature, water extremes, and vertebrate pests (birds, rodents, etc.).

DPMs are expected to provide needed expert service to commercial and urban plant growers, and to both the agricultural and general economy. They will have the capacity to contribute to reduced environmental impact as well as improvement of an area's water quality by making correct diagnoses of plant problems and by prescribing the optimum scientifically determined remediation based on the most effective, minimally necessary amounts of treatment materials, applied in the safest, most judicious manner.

Admission to the DPM program requires the same standards as admission to graduate school for an MS or PhD degree, and involves 90 semester credits of graduate course work plus 30 semester credits of internship. Courses are offered by various plant production and plant protection departments, plus those concerned with oral and written communication, business management, and agricultural law. Following successful completion of both course work and internship, students first must pass a comprehensive examination in plant pathology, entomology, and plant science, and then a licensing board exam.

DPM graduates are envisioned to become: private practitioners; governmental specialists; IPM coordinators, and other similar professionals. Individuals planning to return to, and work in, countries where specialist pathologists, entomologists, and weed scientists may not be available to provide needed technical answers, could find the DPM degree particularly useful as a source of broad expertise to help solve all types of plant health problems.

Applications are being accepted for the DPM Program beginning in August 2000. FMI: G. Agrios, Director, DPM Degree Program, 1453 Fifield Hall, Univ. of Florida, Gainesville, Fl 32611-0680, USA. E-mail: GNA@gnv.ifas.ufl.edu Fax: 1-352-392-6532 Phone: 1-352-392-3631 Website: plantpath.ifas.ufl.edu

I applaud Dr. Agrios for leading the way." R.E. Ford, Prof. Emeritus and Executive Director of the Consortium for International Crop Protection. [Former Head, Dept. of Plant Pathology, Univ. of Illinois, USA, and Past President of the American Phytopathological Society.] ** "It is hoped that many promising young undergraduates with talents and potentials for pest diagnostics and for giving "prescriptions" can find this program and benefit from it." J.D. Harper, Prof. and Head, Dept. of Entomology, North Carolina State University, USA. Ed's. note: In conversation, other members of academia that learned about the DPM program have wondered: if the DPM initiative can be a successful approach as envisioned; whether graduates from the program would be educated and experienced to effectively address all the myriad of challenges across every one of the plant, insect, and other disciplines involved in "plant medicine;" as well as, will the DPM degree program cause overlaps and confusion with and among other existing academic programs and objectives. Further comments regarding the DPM degree program are welcome. Innovative Congress Attracts Global Participation The 14TH INTERNATIONAL PLANT PROTECTION CONGRESS, held during July 1999 in the modern Jerusalem, Israel, International Convention Center, lived up to its billing as a premiere event by attracting approximately 1,000 scientists, educators, and extension specialists in entomology, plant pathology, and weed science from more than 70 countries to participate in six plenary sessions, 26 symposia, 31 workshops, and a well planned series of poster presentations. The Congress included innovations: scheduled forums for discussion of the posters; and workshops organized around a series of short presentations followed by one hour of open discussions by all participants.

A new "International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences," was established during the Congress and assumed the role of the former Standing Committee for International Plant Protection Congresses. The new association will coordinate future congresses. The journal CROP PROTECTION, published by Elsevier, Inc., will become the Association's official journal.

GLOBAL IPM NOTES | A new mosquito and biting insect trap emits a combination of carbon dioxide, heat, and octenol the same chemical/physical cues that attract mosquitoes and other biting insects in nature that draws in target pests and then kills them with an electric pulse. The dead pests neatly drop into a removable tray instead of being broadly "splattered" as with the traditional electronic "bug-zapper" type of trap. > W.A.

| Lygus lineolaris (tarnished plant bug) has developed resistance to pyrethroid insecticides, can feed and reproduce on 100+ weed species, causes significant economic losses annually in the USA, and is said to be the only major insect pest in cotton for which scientists have not developed a pheromone. An intensive project is underway to find answers. > G.L. Snodgrass, e-mail: gsnodgra@ag.gov.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Opinion: Rodent Management Approaches Critiqued Two internationally recognized scientists, in a lucid commentary, point out that "rodent management needs to be based on sound ecological understanding of the problem and its surroundings," and that many quick, or unscientific approaches to a very complex problem often can fall short of the desired objectives. H. Leirs, Head of the Mammal Dept. of the Danish Pest Infestation Lab., and G. Singleton, Project Leader of the (Australian) CSIRO Rodent Research Group/Wildlife and Ecology, forwarded a joint statement, "IPM of Rodent Pests - A Different View," in response to the item "Rodents = A Big Problem Globally" that appeared in IPMnet NEWS #66, June ྟ. Space limitations prevent including more than a brief summary of their statement; the complete version can be requested from either author.

According to Drs. Leirs and Singleton, rodent damage management despite the existence of various technologies, and the several texts describing them remains underdeveloped for several reasons: the complexity of rodent ecology and behavior; the unpopularity of studying the problem in contrast to insect pest problems; and the over-reliance on rodent predators or other non-scientific strategies.

The erroneous belief among agricultural scientists that current rodent damage levels have to be accepted as a way of life is another contributing factor impeding effective, damage-preventing rodent management, say the two authors.

Rodent controls such as those based on the use of baits require a thorough knowledge of rodent habits and preferences which can differ significantly with the involved species. Collecting information about rodent biology is a daunting, difficult, and time consuming challenge. While indigenous knowledge can be highly useful, it should both factor in the full impact of ecological understanding, and be buttressed by sound scientific information, observe Leirs and Singleton.

TWO NEW TITLES FROM APS PRESS The prolific American Phytopathological Society (APS) offers two new titles: ** The latest in the plant-microbe interaction series is PLANTMICROBE INTERACTIONS, Volume 4, which explores examples of microorganisms and their sometimes unexpected effects on plants. Edited by G. Stacey and N.T. Keen, and with eight chapters by an array of international authorities, this 1999, 296-page, hardcover work discusses contemporary science with implications only beginning to be realized, and points to vast future potential. The series, and certainly this knowledgeable volume, aims to synthesize and chronicle recent advances in cutting-edge science.

** Originally published in 1973, COMPENDIUM OF CORN DISEASES has been thoroughly revised and re-issued in 1999 as a 128-page 3RD EDITION now containing over 170 clear color photos plus a two-page, color guide to nutrient deficiency symptoms. Editor D.G. White has skillfully melded information supplied by numerous contributors to create a practical and informative resource for all those involved with corn/maize production. The volume follows the traditional APS compendia softcover, graphically practical format.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT STANDARDS Establishing and following standards for pesticide application equipment is a logical and critical component of the FAO (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization) program to minimize, and more judiciously manage, the use of pesticides. A no-nonsense 1998 2-volume publication, AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE SPRAYERS, sets forth: ** Vol. 1 (32 pgs)FAO Guidelines on Equipment Quality Control and Use, and FAO Minimum Standards;

** Vol. 2 (63 pgs)FAO Technical Standards, Sprayer Specifications and Test Procedures.

The same two volume set is also available in Spanish as ASESORES PARA PLAGUICIDAS AGRICOLAS.

The softbound work presents safety standards, specifications, and test procedures for major agricultural sprayers manufactured and used in FAO member countries, with guidelines for compression sprayers, mist blowers, and other pesticide application apparatus. The material is based on contemporary information provided by a group of international experts.

ALL ABOUT BACTERIAL WILT DISEASE Reports from the 2nd International Bacterial Wilt Symposium convened in the French West Indies during June 1997 have been collected and published in hardback form as BACTERIAL WILT DISEASE, MOLECULAR AND ECOLOGICAL ASPECTS. Editors P. Prior, et al, have deftly arranged the presented material which summarizes all aspects of current information on bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum. The 447-page, 1998 volume includes more than 60 presentations by an array of international specialists, as well as several color photos.

CRUCIFER CROP PESTS IN MICRONESIA Among the more recent slim, but informative, publications from the University of Guam that let their numerous full color photos do most of the "talking," is PESTS OF CABBAGE AND OTHER CRUCIFER CROPS IN MICRONESIA. Authors R. Muniappan and N. Esguerra present useful background information to supplement the photos. Softbound, 12 pages. FMI: R. Muniappan, CALS, Univ. of Guam, Mangilao, Guam 96923, USA E-mail: rmuni@uog9.uog.edu. A CRITICAL RELATIONSHIP: GENDER AND IPM In its 107 pages, WOMEN AND IPM: CROP PROTECTION PRACTICES AND STRATEGIES makes very clear women's importance to crop protection in the developing world and suggests ways to increase their involvement in decision making. In terms of women's roles in crop protection, and specifically IPM, editors E. van de Fliert and J. Proost, drawing on an authoritative group of international authors, ask and attempt to answer critical, flash-point gender issues, such as: who holds the power to design training courses, or select trainers and participants. The softbound, 1999 volume's bottom line message emphasizes the urgent need for revised gender-blind strategies and significantly broadened access to IPM information and training such as local farmer field schools.
