IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Australian Program Targets Weed Resistance The threat increasing herbicide resistance poses to sustainable cropping systems in Australia has mobilized a five-year, multi-sponsored, multi-discipline research and extension strategic program, the Western Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (WAHRI). Based at the Univ. of Western Australia and cooperating with several national organizations, WAHRI was established to develop answers to counter the impact of herbicide-resistant weeds that plague the area's grain growers in particular, and other crops as well. Grower surveys identify several pernicious weeds, especially Lolium spp. and Raphanus raphanistrum, as becoming increasingly resistant to the herbicides that are widely used currently.

The Initiative's plans call for investigation ranging from the biology, and population ecology, of major weed species to developing integrated management strategies through economic and social appraisal of both grower and industry responses to herbicide resistance.

WAHRI director, S. Powles, counsels that, "As with all herbicides, the less often we use them then the longer they will last." Reducing heavy dependence on herbicide use means adopting farming systems incorporating a variety of weed management approaches, noted Dr. Powles. WAHRI aims to articulate and demonstrate the underpinnings for achieving these integrated, reduced chemical use approaches.

GLOBAL IPM NOTES ** A black weevil, Cyrtobagous salviniae, that has helped control the invasive aquatic weeds Salvinia molesta and S. minima in AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AFRICA, INDIA, and the U.S. state of Florida, has been recruited to help battle outbreaks of the aggressive S. molesta in Texas. Unchecked, this aquatic weed can quickly double its spread in only a few days and threaten waterways. Weevil adults and juveniles primarily attack the weed's new, nitrogen-rich buds. > T.D. Center, e-mail: tcenter@ars.usda.gov. ** During a review of the Insect and Pest Control Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture, an external, multi-national review team endorsed the rationale for area-wide control of insect pests, and concluded that, "radiation induced sterility of mass reared insects has played, and for the forseeable future will continue to play, an important role." > J. Hendrichs, e-mail: j.hendrichs@iaea.org.

** The nematode Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita, a parasite of true slugs, is now being commercially produced and marketed for biological control in the UK and Europe. Trials in Switzerland showed the parasite to be as effective for slug control as metaldehyde, a standard chemical bait. Investigation is underway in the USA to see if P. hermaphrodita occurs in any natural slug populations prior to attempting to register it in the USA. > Excerpted from: MIDWEST BIOCON. NEWS, 6(8), August 1999.

** Weedbuster Weed in Australia: October 10-17, 1999. Following successes the previous two years, this expanding national event seeks to heighten awareness of the damage and cost caused by weeds, under the slogan, "Weed Prevention is the Intention." A variety of events take place such as field days, demonstrations, and school activities, all aimed at stimulating "people to do something about weeds." > S.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Focused on Requirements for IPM-grown Crops Two U.S. entomologists have jointly launched the IPM Institute of North America, Inc. recently as a vehicle for explaining, expanding, and helping others experience various benefits derived from integrated pest management. One of the Institute's key roles, says T.A. Green, co-founder and president of its Board of Directors, "is to facilitate the development of credible, practical, and environmentally effective IPM requirements for both IPM labels and other eco-labels, with the collaboration of land grant IPM experts, crop consultants, producers, consumer, and environmental groups."

The Institute's first major project will occur 06-07 December ྟ when it organizes and sponsors a conference titled, "Adding Value through Environmental Marketing: Opportunities for Food Producers, Processors and Retailers," in Madison, WI, USA. The meeting is designed to focus on production, marketing, and distribution of field crops, plus meat and dairy products.

The event is intended to: (1) Increase awareness of what Dr. Green terms Environmental Management Systems (EMSs) and the potential for use in environmentally identified/certified marketing, including rationale and mechanisms; and, (2) Help create an atmosphere where decision makers in a variety of food chains can initiate relationships leading to expanded adoption of EMSs in production and marketing, with a focus on major field crops in the U.S. upper midwest, including meat and dairy products as the largest consumers of these field crops.

IPM FOR STONE FRUIT - AND MORE The latest addition to the notable Univ. of California IPM publications series may be the most comprehensive yet. INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FOR STONE FRUITS, 264 information packed and color plate-laden pages, came off the press in 1999 and raises the bar for delivering practical, usable IPM material in an appealing, user-friendly format. The superior quality softbound work was prepared for growers and pest management advisors (but will be valuable to a much wider audience) and covers contemporary management strategies for insect, disease, weed, and vertebrate pests of stone fruits, ranging from apricots to prunes. Prepared by L.L. Strand with input from dozens of experts, this concise, crisp guide's seven sections help determine when control action is needed and when it is not, how to identify beneficial agents, how to conduct specific tactics, and much more. Besides the 300+ color photos and 100+ line drawings, the nominally priced volume (Pub. #3389) includes: a Pest Damage Table, references, and a glossary. FMI: C.C.

WAYS TO PARE PESTICIDE USAGE During the last 20 years in the intensively farmed U.S. midwest, growers and researchers have developed and refined methods to not only manage pests, but reduce chemical inputs and improve profits as well. A handsome 1999 extension publication from the Iowa State Univ., EIGHT WAYS TO REDUCE PESTICIDE USE, describes the techniques involved, their benefits, and their risks, if any. The softbound, full color work lists the eight ways as: reduce soil insecticide rates; rotate crops (for insect control); rotate crops (for weed control); scout fields; band herbicides; delay planting; control weeds mechanically; and, spot spray if needed. This publication (IPM 59) offers 33 pages of practical information clearly and attractively presented. FMI: Extension Distribution Center, 119 Pubs.

ISLAND CROP PESTS PROFILED The Republic of Palau, more than 200 islands and the second largest island group in Micronesia, is rich in pest life, both native and increasingly imported. A liberally illustrated 1999 publication, SURVEY OF INSECT PESTS OF CROPS AND INVASIVE WEEDS IN THE REPUBLIC OF PALAU, presents information on the status, hosts, biology, and natural enemies (if any) for a range of insect pests found in 27 crops, plus a brief review of five noxious weeds. The 42-page, softbound work was prepared by R. Muniappan, et al and includes dozens of full color plates on high quality paperstock. FMI: R. Muniappan, Agric. Exp.

THE GRASS IS GREENER, NOT BUGGIER A recent, informative addition to the "Turfgrass Science and Practice" series is DESTRUCTIVE TURFGRASS INSECTS: BIOLOGY, DIAGNOSIS AND CONTROL, a comprehensive, 344-page study of virtually all the insect and mites that attack both warm and cool season turfgrasses. Entomologist-author D.A. Potter describes the various species and then presents practical guidelines for their management. Though U.S.-oriented, this volume will have much wider application. The hardbound, 1998 work includes extensive black/white graphics, plus a 32-page full color inserted section offering clear photos of both pests and the problems they cause. FMI: S. DeWall, Ann Arbor Press, Inc., 121 S. Main St., Chelsea, MI 48118, USA E-mail: skip@sleepingbearpress.com. TWO NEW TITLES FROM MARCEL DEKKER ** A massive, 864-page, versatile new reference incorporating a wide range of pest management fundamentals, as well as contemporary ideology, has been published as the HANDBOOK OF PEST MANAGEMENT, and is said to provide a detailed summary of pest management principles and techniques, outlining a broad selection of critical issues regarding current practice and future technology. Edited by entomologist J.R. Ruberson, the 1999, hardbound work presents material by 46 authorities, plus an introduction by 1997 World Food Prize co-laureate, P.L. Adkisson. Chapters begin with an examination of pests as part of an agroecosystem, and progress through pest biology and management, including issues of broad current concern. ** CONTROLLED-RELEASE DELIVERY SYSTEMS FOR PESTICIDES, a 1999 work edited by H.B. Scher, covers the latest advances in pesticide delivery technologies and highlights new means of reducing toxicity, increasing efficacy, lessening environmental impact, and facilitating new product development. The hardbound, 336-page monograph features chapters by 26 international authors reflecting perspectives of industry, academia, and government representatives. Sections address microcapsules, microparticles, granules, and delivery devices.

TWO NEW TITLES FROM ACADEMIC PRESS ** Subtitled "Principles and Applications of Biological Control," an exhaustive new work, HANDBOOK OF BIOLOGICAL CONTROL, offers a global in-depth overview of biocontrol. More than 60 authors, with a third coming from the Univ. of California system, contributed material to this hardbound volume which was originally conceived in 1986, but greatly expanded, reshaped over time, and published in 1999. In its 1058 pages, this monograph spans topics from the scope and significance of biocontrol, through principles, practices, and implementation, to research and the future...some 40 chapters later. Editors T.S. Bellows and T.W. Fisher are entomologists so not surprisingly this milestone reference emphasizes biocontrol of insect pests, though including several chapters on weeds, diseases, and vertebrate pests. ** Of narrower scope, a 1998, 414-page publication offers a more limited though important focus on avenues for maximizing biocontrol through practices that help enhance and support natural enemies of pest insects. CONSERVATION BIOLOGICAL CONTROL, a 20-chapter monograph with less than five illustrations, was prepared by 38 international experts and edited by P. Barbosa. The hardbound work unfortunately interprets the broad term "pests" to mean only insect pests, and also suffers from some glaring typographical errors.

Publication & CD Notes Two late 1998 CDs deliver a wealth of both noxious aquatic and terrestrial plant management information. The CD titled AQUATIC PLANT INFORMATION SYSTEM (APIS) covers identification and various management strategies for more than 60 aquatic and wetland species. Hyperlinks, photos, simulation models, and much more are included. The second CD, NOXIOUS AND NUISANCE PLANT MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (PMIS), parallels the APIS CD while incorporating a broader range of species plus additional data. Both interactive CDs require Windows 3.1 or 95, have a U.S. focus, and are free on request from: M.J. Grodowitz, Waterways Exp.

Since 1972, the huge U.S. state of Texas has conducted a major IPM program designed to "deliver unbiased, credible, reliable and timely solutions to pest problems of agricultural and urban customers," according to a handsome 1999 publication, IPM PROGRESS THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS. The all color, softbound work's 28 pages highlight in-state IPM programs for a variety of crops from rice to peanuts/groundnuts, all within the framework of cooperation between the private and public sectors.

OTHER RESOURCES MANUAL: IPM FOR SCHOOLS A group within the U.S. State of Wisconsin has prepared a SCHOOL INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT MANUAL designed to provide schools (in Wisconsin, though broadly applicable) with the essential elements for establishing and conducting a minimal pesticide use IPM program. A 1999 draft version of the work is posted on the web at: ipcm.wisc.edu/programs/school/default.htm. It introduces IPM concepts, then presents sections for addressing each of the most commonly encountered pests, as well as procedures specifically for playing fields, parking areas, fence lines, and turf areas, plus indoor pest management and control of vertebrate pests.

BOLSTER THAT POSTER Attendees at most conferences these days have an opportunity (if not an obligation, dreaded as it may seem to be) to march into the space dedicated to posters and selectively view dozens of offerings. Some posters will quickly and concisely convey useful information. Others will be avoided or, if glanced at, quickly forgotten. Why do posters widely range in quality from excellent to abysmal? Now, a professional educator has developed a useful set of guidelines for improving poster impact and avoiding many of the common pitfalls. "Come and Look at This One: Tips for Getting Your Poster Noticed," by H. Carter, is posted on the web at: ianrwww.unl.edu/ianr/agronomy/range/poster1.htm, and addresses the very advanced planning needed to prepare a winning poster, as well as all phases of actual production including best type faces and minimum type size to use, along with other useful ideas. Applying the caveats and hints provided should lead to improved communication of the poster's message. FMI: H. Carter, Ctr. for Sustainable Agric.

Two of the newer offerings are: 1.) "DIR's Best Outstanding IPM-Related Websites," the creme-de-la-creme chosen (by the DIR-webmeister) for demonstrated creativity, usefulness, and high quality design including user friendliness; 2.) An expanded "IPM Informatics Section," with information ranging far and wide, all based on over 60 specialty search engines, databases, and directories linked to IPM, as well as an automated slide style presentation, "IPM Principles, Approaches and Ecological Basis", and other resources. The website for DIR is: www.IPMnet.org/DIR/. Navigating the site is an adventure in itself. FMI: W.I.

Univ., using advanced technology and software called "BugVisux," has developed MORPHOR, a tool for morphometrics based on mathematical morphology of insects, but applicable to plant and other biota as well. MORPHOR works with image processing methods such as image acquisition, enhancement, edge detection, segmentation, feature extraction, and recognition. Uses include insect imagery, and automatically identifying insects such as Helicoverpa armigera, Ostrinia furnacalis, and Ectomocoris atrox. The tool also is said to have potential to explore computer vision and digital technology for IPM on plant diseases, weeds, and rodents. FMI: Z. Shen, IPMIST, China Agric.

III. RESEARCH/TECHNICAL PAPERS categories and topics related to IPM. IPMnet NEWS will gladly provide the postal address for any first author mentioned in the listed titles that follow. Please direct requests for this information via e-mail to: IPMnetNUZ@bcc.orst.edu. Featured Paper Biocompatible Materials vs. Fungicides With a goal of identifying biocompatible materials that can effectively replace conventional chemical fungicides for controlling cucurbit crop diseases, such as powdery mildew caused by Sphaerotheca fusca, researchers evaluated four commercially developed products against a control and a fungicide treatment on a variety of crops. The work was conducted under field conditions in the eastern coastal USA. Results revealed that all four biocompatible products suppressed powdery mildew to some degree, but none could match the degree of suppression attained with conventional fungicide treatment. A possibility of combining use of biocompatibles with fungicide may offer promise. See: "Evaluation of Biocompatible Products for Managing Cucurbit Powdery Mildew," McGrath, M.T., and N. Shiskoff.
