IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs IPMnet Begins Its 7th Year The Consortium for International Crop Protection (CICP), originator and sponsor of IPMnet and IPMnet NEWS, is pleased that this issue (#71) of the NEWS begins the seventh year of providing a free information resource to help foster global development and implementation of Integrated Pest Management. The NEWS, now sent to recipients in 113 countries every month, reaches a combined e-mail and web audience estimated to approach 4,000 (from a beginning of just over 200). Many among this group have provided information for inclusion in the NEWS, thereby fulfilling the original vision of a highly collaborative IPM information sharing activity.

And while the future is never certain, CICP believes the global IPM information resource concept is not only feasible, but clearly valuable, proven, and well worth continuation. The Consortium salutes all the NEWS recipients and others who have been, and continue to be, an integral part of this pioneering effort, and looks forward to providing useful, constructive IPM-related information in the future.

World Pest Management Loses a Champion Ray F. Smith, entomologist and co-winner of the prestigious 1997 World Food Prize for his visionary pest management efforts, died earlier in 1999 leaving behind him a unique legacy of new approaches and philosophies for more effective, less environmentally destructive pest control strategies, broadly known today as IPM. A long-time faculty member and Dept. of Entomology head at the Univ. of California, Berkeley, Dr. Smith, according to the World Food Prize Foundation, championed "a world where agricultural pests could be effectively controlled without a blitz of chemicals ... with positive environmental and economic consequences for farmers. From an idea to a proven system, IPM eventually became a resolution."

Along with his extensive research at Berkeley focused on less destructive methods of pest insect management in the intensive agricultural matrix of California's row crops and orchards, Smith headed a long-term, U.S. Government-supported international development program that not only provided high caliber direct technical assistance, but helped train scientists from around the world who have been instrumental in creating the "IPM revolution."

Out of this work came the Consortium for International Crop Protection (CICP), organized by Smith and colleagues, bringing together a group of U.S. landgrant institutions with interests in enlightened approaches to pest management. Ray Smith served six years as the first CICP executive director. His work led to CICP's 1993 launch of IPMnet as a unique, free, IPM global information dissemination activity.

The list of Smith's honors, awards, and fellowships is robust, but perhaps most remarkable was his sustained, dogged devotion to the concept of helping arrest the accelerating downhill slide of agriculture into total chemical dependency. With the death of Ray F. Smith, world agriculture lost a true visionary whose life work left a lasting positive impact.

GLOBAL IPM NOTES ** Researchers at the Centro Internacional de la Papa (CIP) in Peru, together with research collaborators, are working to develop an integrated pest management strategy that would provide Andean potato farmers with better access to the tools and knowledge needed to combat the newly arrived potato tuber moth (Tecia solanivora). CIP also has provided pheromone capsules and technical support to local agencies. > CIP, e-mail: CIP@cgiar.org. ** The result of severe infection of zucchini in Israel with Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus (ZYMV) and the spread to other varieties of Curcubitaceae (squash, melon, gourd) led an Israeli firm, Bio-Oz Ltd., to develop a process of "cross-protection" based on mechanical inoculation of target crops with a weakened version of the natural virus. The process is said to prevent loss, reduce need for spraying fungicides, avoid environmental degradation, and provide a one-time operation whose cost is known beforehand which functions as an insurance policy. > E-mail: Bio_Oz@Nahaloz.org.il.

** Rearing protocol improvements are being investigated to accelerate production of Ectomyelois ceratoniae (Zeller), the date moth. The work is being conducted in Tunisia in conjunction with the Insect and Pest Control Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture. Changes involve diets, methods of collecting, caging arrangements, and use of odors to stimulate oviposition. > Excerpted from: INSECT AND PEST CONT. NEWSLTR., 53, July 1999.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information * Special Forum * Two scientists offer their intriguing viewpoint on a strategy for increasing the effectiveness of arthropod biocontrol. IPMnet NEWS appreciates their generous provision of this material. The opinions expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of IPMnet nor the Consortium for International Crop Protection.

The "Integrated Biological Control" Concept by: G.M. Gurr and S.D. Wratten Pest Management Group, Univ. of Sydney, Orange Campus, PO Box 883, Orange, NSW, 2800, AUSTRALIA; e-mail: ggurr@oac.usyd.edu.au; and, Div. of Plant, Soil and Ecological Sci., PO Box 84, Lincoln Univ., Canterbury, NEW ZEALAND; e-mail: wrattens@lincoln.ac.nz.

Despite some spectacular, well known successes, most introductions of classical biological control agents are unsuccessful. For arthropod pests, the BIOCAT database (Greathead and Greathead, 1992) shows that approximately 50 percent of introductions, or less, lead to establishment of the agent, while only 10 percent or so actually contribute to control of the target organism. One explanation is that too little attention is given to the requirements of the agent other than host range testing and, perhaps, climate matching. Conservation biocontrol couples an understanding of insect ecology with habitat management techniques (Landis, et al, 2000) to enhance the impact of natural enemies, but usually focuses on native species.

Gurr and Wratten (1999) use recent research results to argue that habitat management approaches, such as providing alternative food and moderated microclimate, can improve the performance of exotic natural enemies. Greater concern with the requirements of agents also may maximize longevity and impact of mass released natural enemies in inundative/augmentative biocontrol. There is no ecological reason why conservation biocontrol techniques should be less relevant for an introduced agent. On the contrary, there is obviously more likelihood of a mismatch between an introduced agent and its environment than applies to a native species which may have co-evolved with particular native floral structures/phenologies, etc.

Thus, the Integrated Biological Control (IBC) concept seeks to break down methodological barriers such that the benefits of habitat management approaches are recognized and exploited by those engaged in all branches of biocontrol.

IBC will become increasingly important in classical biocontrol as authorities more tightly regulate the releases of exotic organisms. Hence, it will be vital to ensure that releases are not further constrained by a lack of the ecological resources that could be provided by minor changes to agricultural practice (e.g., field-margin plantings; Hickman and Wratten, 1996). Such changes may also make inundative biocontrol more successful.

NEW TITLES FROM THE ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA A handsome, 1999 publication from the Entomological Society of America, HANDBOOK OF CORN INSECTS, presents the latest research-based knowledge (in North America) for diagnosing insect-caused problems in maize/corn and for activating effective management strategies. Using nearly 160 color photos and dozens of detailed illustrations, editors K.L. Steffey, et al, have drawn on information from 74 contributors to describe key insect pests, identify damage they cause, and lay out in detail a variety of management techniques and considerations. The softbound work discusses development of IPM programs. One section of the useful handbook's 164 pages is devoted to beneficial organisms and their deployment.

ARTHROPOD MANAGEMENT TESTS 1999 is the 24th volume in the annual series that reports on the performance of various insect management techniques covering insecticides, biocontrol agents, resistant varieties, acaricides, microbials, and insect growth regulators. Editor K.N. Saxena has neatly organized more than 450 reports conducted by a cadre of researchers in North America working in a broad spectrum of field and orchard crops, ornamentals, and other settings. The softbound, 478-page work is moderately priced; the same information can be accessed cost-free online at www.entsoc.org/pubs/amt.htm. FMI: N.L.

U.S. PEST MANAGEMENT REPORT A 1999 report describes PEST MANAGEMENT IN U.S. AGRICULTURE, clearly emphasizes IPM, and is based on results of an extensive nationwide study conducted in 1996. The 73-page, softbound publication (Agric. Handbook 717) was prepared by J. Fernandez-Cornejo and S. Jans, and offers revealing insights into the specific crops and geographic areas that are either spearheading or lagging in IPM adoption, and the reasons why. FMI: USDA, ERS, 1800 M Street, NW, Washington, DC 200036-5831, USA Website: www.econ.ag.gov. ATTRACTING BIOCONTROL AGENTS Another recent publication that focuses on ecological manipulation to enhance predators and parasites of insect pests, ENHANCING BIOLOGICAL CONTROL, edited by C.H. Pickett and R.L. Bugg, is slightly mis-subtitled, "Habitat management to promote natural enemies of agricultural pests;" this extensive 1998 work's text quickly clarifies the term "pests," as used here, primarily refers to arthropods, not weeds, diseases, or vertebrates. An international contributor group offers wide ranging insights and research results for such matters as natural enemies, refugia, and habitat in general. The hardbound, 422-page volume touches on both theoretical and practical issues in the emerging arena of intentional habitat modification.

Publication & CD Notes A new CD from the Univ. of Minnesota Extension service offers a wealth of information concerning HERBICIDE MODE OF ACTION AND CROP INJURY SYMPTOMS. With more than 500 color photos and images, timelapse video clips of crop injury development, animation of herbicide and plant interactions, a find-it-fast index that cross-references hundreds of topics, and more, this CD is said to be easy to navigate. Featured crops are corn/maize, soybean, small grains, and sugarbeets. Weed scientist J. Gunsolus and colleagues developed this useful information resource which will operate on both PC and Mac computers and includes a crop photo library. FMI: J.

Proceedings have been published for a tightly focused, multidisciplinary, three-day risk assessment workshop, ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF PEST RESISTANCE GENES IN MANAGED ECOSYSTEMS, convened in the U.S. during early 1999. The science-based workshop generated extensive information and arrived at interesting conclusions. The Executive Summary portion of the Proceedings can be found in the October 1999 issue of ISB NEWS REPORT (a free monthly newsletter published by Information Systems for Biotechnology).

OTHER RESOURCES PHEROMONES OFFERED IN EUROPE At a 1997 meeting in Hungary, strong concern was expressed with the uneven quality of commercial pheromone lures available in Europe. For instance, some suppliers inadvertently changed lures (dose, chemical composition, dispenser types) without field-testing them. Other lures failed to attract, or if they did, often varied in attraction levels from year to year thus invalidating their use in research aimed at monitoring insect population levels. The result: a group in Europe has launched Phero.Net as an organization to both test and produce materials rather than preparing recommendations and waiting for commerce to follow. To date, Phero.Net has tested, certified, and produced pheromones for 13 insect species and has plans to expand as well as develop, test, and market traps. FMI: P.

AVOID SPRAY DRIFT Important basics are set forth in an article, "Steps to Help You Avoid Pesticide Drift," in the October 1999 issue of IPM SOLUTIONS newsletter. Avoiding application under adverse conditions (intensity and direction of wind), opting for the largest possible spray droplets, and properly adjusting spray boom height (or other controls) to minimize distance between nozzle and target are mentioned.

EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS EFFECTIVE WEEDING ALTERNATIVE Powered, vertically rotating, circular brushes can provide effective between-row weeding for high value crops (vegetables, fruits, nursery stock) planted in narrow rows. Known as brush hoes or brush weeders, these units offer an alternative to hand-weeding and herbicide application. The brush discs: 1) are composed of high-wear flexible nylon bristles; 2) range in diameter from 20 in. (50 cm) to 30 in. (76 cm) and are at least 4.75 in. (12 cm) wide; 3) rotate in the direction of travel; 4) pull and shred weeds (depositing them rearward on the row surface); and 5) aerate the soil surface approximately 1 in. (2.5 cm) deep without moving or scooping soil, or causing any compaction. Typically, multiple discs are spaced along a powered shaft separated by "tunnel" shields that protect crop plants as the unit passes by. Brush hoe models are available as either tool carrier mounted, or 3-point hitch systems which require a second operator (sitting behind the brushes) for precision steering. Units are said to be usable in a variety of soil moisture conditions, but less effective when the surface is hard and dry.

COMPACT VALVE IMPROVES SPRAY EFFICIENCY Widely used lever-operated knapsack sprayers, or handpumped compression sprayers, characteristically produce broad pressure fluctuation depending on the force and frequency of pumping action applied by the operator. The result can be inconsistent spray solution flow and thus inaccurate, unsatisfactory results. A new, lowcost, durable device, the CF Valve (constant flow) has been introduced to address the problem by effectively controlling and managing spray solution pressure and flow. The lightweight, rugged plastic valves, constructed with a preset pressure, are fitted between the end of a spray lance/wand and its nozzle. The sprayer will then only produce spray when sufficient pressure is built up to open the valve, and will not exceed the predetermined pressure range regardless of the operator's action. Similarly, when pressure drops below the allowed minimum, the CF Valve closes, stopping further spray emission. Valves are offered in a variety of sizes and pipe threads to fit many sprayers.

IPM RESEARCH/TECHNICAL PAPERS --- categories and topics related to IPM

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. E-mail requests to: IPMnetNUZ@bcc.orst.edu. Featured Paper A unique concept, hydrophobic particle film technology, combines a synthesis of previous knowledge and experimentation with hydrophobic films, physical particle barriers, and white reflective plant surfaces, to provide broad spectrum protection against arthropod pests as well as diseases in certain crops. The extensively researched technology, as recently reported, reduces opportunities for disease propagule germination, and also can severely impair insect movement, feeding, and other physical activities due to making plant surfaces physically and tactually unrecognizable. Particle film was found to reduce heat stress, but not negatively impact plant photosynthesis or productivity.
