IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Asian Center Promotes IPM Research Insects and Pathogens in Focus From its Taiwan headquarters and global outreach programs, the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC) conducts an IPM research and development program that focuses on several phytophagous pest insects and two key plant pathogens that pose serious impediments to vegetable production worldwide. The pests are especially important under tropical and subtropical conditions which tend to be conducive to year-round growth and development of hosts and pests.

AVRDC's project, "Integrated Insect and Disease Management (IPM) for Environment-friendly Production of Safe Vegetables," aims to develop "pest-control technologies that emphasize biological, cultural, and mechanical control to minimize the use of chemical pesticides," according to the Center's recently issued Annual Report for 1998. "Harmonious integration of these approaches ...... is the keystone" of AVRDC's IPM research.

Among the targeted pest insects are: Plutella xylostella (diamondback moth); Hellula undalis (cabbage webworm); Crocidolomia binotalis (Zeller) (cabbagehead webworm); Spodoptera exigua (Hubner) (armyworms); and several others. The main pathogens being studied are: Ralstonia solanacearum (bacterial wilt) and Fusarium oxysporum F. sp lycopersicon (fusarium wilt).

Central American Vegetable Research Network Formed

The Interamerican Institute for Cooperation in Agriculture (IICA) and the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center are jointly spearheading the Collaborative Network for Vegetable Research and Development for Central America (Spanish acronym, REDCAHOR). The program, which began operating in seven nations in the region, aims to improve vegetable production in the member countries.

IPM forms a fundamental element of REDCAHOR. Regional IPM workshops were held in both the Dominican Republic and in Nicaragua during 1998. The meetings led to initiation of programs including evaluation of IPM practices for selected crops, biological control procedures, and evaluation of pest-resistant germplasm. The Network's early activities also included plans for regional vegetable production trials.

Citrus Pest Targeted for Biocontrol A virulent insect pest has invaded the U.S. state of Florida, one of the country's most important citrus production areas and, according to entomologist M.A. Hoy, unless contained by natural enemies, has the potential to spread to other citrus areas within the U.S. as well as across the Western Hemisphere (beyond Brazil where it has been established for many years). The pest, Diaphorina citri (Asian citrus psyllid), can damage citrus two ways: by directly feeding on, and causing distortion and even death of, young citrus shoots through its toxic saliva, and as a vector of Liberobacter asiaticuma (citrus greening), a serious disease of citrus. The pest has a high reproductive rate with multiple, overlapping generations that lead to vast populations.

An active biological control effort was initiated and is well underway based on importing, testing, and releasing two host-specific parasitoids: Diaphorencyrtus aligarhensis and Tamarixia radiata, both parasitic wasps known to be associated with D. citri in the Asia Pacific region. Classical biological control could depress D. citri populations and thus reduce feeding damage and (potentially) transmission of greening disease should the pathogen ever become established in Florida.

Trutmann to a new position, coordinator of international IPM within the Cornell International Institute for Food and Agricultural Development (CIIFAD). The initiative aims to draw on CIIFAD's expertise and longstanding involvement with non-Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development nations to develop IPM related programs with partners for Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Dr. Trutmann, a plant pathologist with extensive international experience, noted that special emphasis will be given to pest resistance management, biological control, soil health management, and distance learning. > P. Trutman, pt15@cornell.edu.

Through a collaborative Vietnamese-International Rice Research Institute program and involvement of rice farmers, routine use of category I insecticides for control of leaf folder, a serious rice pest, was shown to be ineffective and uneconomical. The research results led Vietnam to withdraw insecticide registration for leaf folder control. > K.L. Heong, k.heong@cgiar.org.

Crop Data Management Systems (CDMS), a U.S. firm, says it has "compiled the most extensive electronic database of agricultural chemical label information in the world." CDMS offers a range of related information at www.cdms.net. > CDMS, jim@cdms.net.

New strategies for controlling Cercosporella rubi (rosette disease), a serious disease of Rubus sp. (blackberries), have been developed based on a modified application schedule for fungicides both before and after harvest. > B.J. Smith, bjsmith@ag.gov.

The Global Crop Protection Federation (GCPF), which represents crop protection product manufacturers in 73 countries, issued a call to the World Trade Organization meeting in November 1999 to eliminate tariffs on all crop protection products by 01 January 2001. The GCPF's press notice cited potential benefits of improved access to products, stimulated economic growth, and development of more new products. > GCPF, GCPF@pophost.eunet.be.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Preventing Field Rodents In and Around Structures During periods of cold, wet weather, field rodents will seek out warmth and food often found inside structures. Rodents can contaminate human food, damage electric wiring, and act as disease vectors. Several basic procedures can help prevent rodent entry or presence. Avoid, or remove, any spilled garbage, or trash around buildings.

Use containers with tightly fitting covers for externally storing any garbage or trash.

Keep any plants or shrubs trimmed at least 12 in. (30 cm) away from a structure's exterior.

Seal any holes or cracks in a structure's exterior surface, especially around pipes, wires, conduits, or other utility lines that enter the structure.

Make sure that all doors, windows, hatches, or vents fit snugly without any gaps, and are kept closed.

IPM FOR URBAN SETTINGS "IPM is the springboard of pest management into the next century," asserts M.S. Lacey, primary author of the URBAN IPM HANDBOOK, a welcome newer addition to urban pest control literature. Subtitled "An Integrated Approach to Management of Pests in and Around Structures," this 1998 work, published by the U.S.-based National Pest Control Association (NPCA), clearly articulates the advantages of an IPM approach for urban pest management paralleling the situation that has emerged in crop pest management. Lacey establishes five fundamental steps for urban IPM: inspection, identification, establishment of threshold levels, employment of multiple control measures, and evaluation; he then describes how the steps are effectively applied. The 149-page, softbound volume not only provides a balanced text, but adds a section on specific urban IPM examples, plus practical forms and a comprehensive reference list.

NEMATODES AND CROPS PLANT NEMATODE INTERACTIONS, a recent hardbound addition to the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) Monograph series, explores the concepts of nematode biology, systematics, and ecology while offering key information on important crop-nematode interactions. Editors K.R. Barker, et al, have arranged the 27 chapters and 772 pages of this 1998 work, ASA Monograph 36, to constitute "the most comprehensive treatise available on these complex nematode-plant relationships," according to the publisher.

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 While citing 50+ years of IPM endeavor worldwide, N. Gotsch and T. Braunschweig argue that there exists an ever-increasing demand for a broader understanding of (agricultural) pest problems and their solution. In "Problem Identification and Knowledge Acquisition for the Solution of Pest Problems: A Suggestion for a Comprehensive Approach," the two scientists contend that modern IPM needs more emphasis on reducing losses rather than controlling pests, and that this implies a need for broader analysis of pest problems and potential solutions beyond host-pest interactions. Further, processes for analyzing and arriving at solutions must remain cost effective despite a higher degree of complexity, and, note the authors, will need to be applied in multidisciplinary fashion.
