IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs IPM: Challenged But Still Valid Three scientists recently drew on the colorful metaphor of U.S. style football to tartly comment on, and challenge, an extensively discussed 1996 report issued by the (U.S.) National Research Council (NRC) which forcefully promoted replacing the term "integrated" with "ecologically based" as applied to pest management. To the proposed scrapping of "IPM" in favor of "EBPM," authors T.A. Royer and colleagues unequivocally state, in "Renaming (Redefining) Integrated Pest Management: Fumble, Pass or Play?," that they do not believe "IPM needs to be renamed." Writing in AMERICAN ENTOMOLOGIST, 45(1), 136-139, 1999, Royer, et al essentially concur with the conclusion reached earlier by M. Kogan [PHYTOPARASITICA, 27(2), 93-96, 1999] who noted that in the past three decades IPM matured into "the fundamental paradigm that has emerged" in crop protection, and that the call to consign the term "integrated" to the waste bin would remove the bedrock conceptual foundation of this widely accepted approach.

According to Royer, et al, the NRC report's support for retiring "IPM" can be distilled into a trio of criticisms that IPM:

# is not eco-logically based; # but is pesticide based; and, # is not interdisciplinary. The authors discuss and present information to broadly refute each NRC rebuke, while concuring that there are needs for increased cross-discipline activity (less solo entomology, more interaction with and between both plant pathology and weed science) as well as greater emphasis on, and implementation of, IPM's ecological foundations.

Two years earlier, R.H. Miller wrote a cogent review of the same NRC report [ENVIRONMENTAL ENTOMOLOGY, 26(3), 725, June 1997] commenting: "the committee's [report's] arguments that a new pest management paradigm is needed or that EBPM will solve the problems of construct drift in IPM are not convincing." In fact, Miller concluded that to foist on producers, administrators, and regulating authorities "a new and rather awkward acronym marking an incremental rather than a quantum change in pest management strategy would be needlessly confusing and counterproductive."

Since all three cited critiques do concur with the NRC's strong concern that ecology must be an elemental factor in pest management, one can conclude that, while there is but sparse support for a change of banners and acronyms, the NRC report arguably served an important role in reminding the global pest management universe of the continuing critical need for heightened cross-disciplinary activity and strengthened ecological approaches within the valid IPM framework.

GLOBAL IPM NOTES Results from recent research indicate that a fungus associated with Cassia tora (sicklepod) effectively controls Pueraria lobata (kudzu) a non-native, highly invasive weed widely found, but not effectively controlled, in the southern USA. In both laboratory and field studies, the fungus Myrothecium verrucaria killed 100 percent of kudzu plants. |> C.D. Boyette, dboyette@ag.gov.

Three of the four sessions during the multi-sponsor, April 03-04 conference, "The Economic and Commercial Impact of Integrated Crop Management," London, UK, will at least touch on some aspect of crop protection. |> L. Cole, Lynnc@chemind.demon.co.uk.

In December, both Tasmania, AUSTRALIA Houses of Parliament passed The Weed Management Act 1999 that for the first time directly underpins a strategic approach to integrated and coordinated weed management at a state level. The Act, among other things, requires a scientifically based weed risk assessment as part of the process for declaring a plant species to be a weed, and provides communities with improved statutory powers to implement weed management/control. |> A. Bishop, Andrew.Bishop@dpiwe.tas.gov.au.

The U.S. State of California has awarded US8,000 in grants to support 19 projects in 2000 that promote environmentally-friendly pest management. The grants, part of an annual program, range from urban school gardens to large-scale farming operations, and include projects to help growers work in harmony with their residential neighbors. |> N. Gorder, ngorder@cdpr.ca.gov.

Management and control of vertebrates will be one of the key subjects addressed during "Human Conflicts with Wildlife: Economic Considerations," a conference scheduled for 01-03 August 2000, at Fort Collins, CO, USA. |> NWRC@usda.gov.

BIOCONTROL: PLUS AND MINUS Entomologists P.A. Follett and J.J. Duan organized a 1997 symposium, "Biological Control for a Small Planet: Nontarget Effects of BC," that attracted eight papers, to which they added nine other studies, and in 2000 published the combined collection as the 316-page NONTARGET EFFECTS OF BIOLOGICAL CONTROL. Said to be "the first book of its kind," the hardcover work addresses key areas of concern: the irreversibility of alien introductions; prevalence of host switching to innocuous native or beneficial species; dispersal of biocontrol agents to new habitats away from croplands; and the lack of research on the efficacy and impact of biocontrol attempts. The 17-chapter monograph offers a balanced treatment of the topic through incorporating diverse viewpoints and approaches in what the editors label "this neglected area of applied ecology," and provides important information to reduce risks in planning and evaluating future biocontrol releases. |> Kluwer Academic Publishers, POB 322, 3300 AH Dordrecht, THE NETHERLANDS.

MODERN PESTICIDE APPLICATION For the foreseeable future, selective, thoughtful use of pesticides will remain an important element within the spectrum of IPM strategies. A 1999 softcover volume by respected international authority G.A. Matthews presents information on this timely topic and succinctly summarizes modern day APPLICATION OF PESTICIDES TO CROPS. The 325-page work examines pesticide application techniques and caveats, primarily from a grower's viewpoint, that are appropriate for a range of major crops field, orchard, turf, and protected cropping. Beyond the extensively illustrated text, appendixes provide additional highly practical technical data. |> E. Haigh, WSPC/Imperial College Press, 57 Shelton St., Covent Garden, London WC2H 9HE, UK.

Publication & CD Notes In the USA, a federally funded program sponsors dissemination of IPM information generated by regional groups of states. The 1999 REPORT ON NORTHEAST REGION INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT capsulizes last year's activities for one group. A cleverly designed series of fact sheets for the 12 involved states presents case studies: the issue, the action taken, and the impact, along with key contact information. The sheets come arranged in a folder that describes the overall program. |> J.R. VanKirk, 248 Grant Ave., Auburn, NY 13021, USA. E-mail: jrv1@cornell.edu. Fax: 1-315-255-1187. Phone: 1-315-255-1183.

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 recent article, "Development of Strategies for the Incorporation of Microbial Pesticides into the Integrated Management of Locusts and Grasshoppers," assessed the impact and future of the isolate IMI 330189 of Metarhizium anisopliae (flavoviride) var. acridum based on use in Africa. Authors C. Lomer, et al, concluded:

On the basis of extensive field testing, use of M. anisopliae is an important component for management of pest locust and grasshoppers. Its advantages were efficacy and persistence, low vertebrate toxicity, little environmental impact, conservation of natural enemies, and potential for recycling. Additional socio-economic advantages include the possibility of local production, ease of disposal, and versatility in use. Principal disadvantages relate to operating characteristics such as slower speed of kill and slightly greater lability in storage compared to chemical pesticides.

Use strategies are being developed to integrate biological control agents into locust and grasshopper management schemes; for M. anisopliae accent is being placed on (i) treating the targeted pest before it invades crops and (ii) situations with a high premium on environmental issues.

Alternatives should be kept viable, such as fast-acting chemical pesticides in some situations. More research, particularly on the long term impact in Africa, would be useful for a less expensive biological agent, such as Nosema locustae with the capacity to persist in the pest insect population. Possible importation of egg parasitoids, such as Scelio parvicornis from Australia, should be evaluated.

Further development work is needed to: clarify the economics and politics of locust and grasshopper control; improve the regulatory framework for biopesticides; inform key decision-makers of the availability and potential of M. anisopliae; and, to implement the biointensive IPM strategies described.
