IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs New Group Formed to Promote Global IPM A new international organization dedicated to "development and utilization of IPM systems on a substantially larger percentage of the world's principal crops" was formally inaugurated in mid-1999 as the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS), arising both as an outgrowth of, and a move to strengthen, the half-century old International Plant Protection Congress (IPPC) forum. Conceived as a mechanism to meet contemporary communication and integration challenges among IPM's key disciplinary segments and to provide management and oversight of the IPPC fora, IAPPS aims to "promote renewed dialogue and to foster the multi-disciplinary, team approach essential for the development and maintenance of dynamic IPM systems," according to the organization's official documents.

IAPPS is envisioned as a cross-disciplinary umbrella organization through which the various plant protection (i.e., "crop" protection ed.) disciplines can realize collective voice and strength as a major component of the agricultural sciences. The Association aims to "stimulate the development and exchange of plant protection information among researchers, extension specialists, growers, policy makers, administrators, crop protection consultants, and environmental and other interested groups."

Leading IAPPS is entomologist H.R. Herren, recipient of the 1995 World Food Prize in recognition of his efforts in developing and executing biocontrol procedures for an insect pest devastating the cassava crop in sub-Saharan Africa, and currently Director General of the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology in KENYA. Other members of the Association's Governing Board include entomologists, a weed scientist, plant pathologists, a toxicologist, and a biologist. J.L. Apple has assumed the duties of secretary general.

IAPPS is structured as eight regional network centers each headed by a coordinator. Eventually countries will designate a country representative who, together, will comprise a network council in each region responsible for identifying that area's common crop plant protection problems as well as suggesting collaborative regional projects.

The well regarded international periodical CROP PROTECTION has been selected as IAPPS' official journal. A subscription to the journal's electronic (on-line) version will be included in one of the several classes of IAPPS memberships available, based on a sliding scale of annual fees. Since CROP PROTECTION does not require a page charge, it is attractive to scientists worldwide.

excerpted from material generously provided by J.L. Apple on behalf of IAPPS. Synopsis of Selected Pest Management Research The Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (ARS-USDA) investigates and develops a wide range of pest management strategies. Abstracts of selected recent ARS research and findings follow based on news releases issued by the Service. Bt Maize Cuts Mycotoxin Levels Recent research found maize modified with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) to protect against Ostrinia nubilalis (Hubner) (European corn borer) damage had 30- to 40-fold lower levels of fumonisin and other mycotoxins compared to non-Bt maize varieties. Environmental conditions and the specific Bt maize hybrid both affect the actual reduction, but maize varieties expressing Bt protein throughout the plant, rather than in just specific areas, showed the most significantly lowered fumonisin levels. Mycotoxins like fumonisin, a potential cancer-causing agent often present at elevated levels in insect-damaged maize kernels, are both health and export concerns. |> P. Dowd dowdpf@mail.ncaur.usda.gov. Biocontrol for Aquatic Weed ARS researchers discovered a new species of Thrypticus, a very small (1.5mm) fly that attacks the serious aquatic weed Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms (waterhyacinth). Immature flies feed inside the weed's petioles, the small stalks that attach leaves to stems. In addition, the flies' tunneling may enable microbes to enter and further weaken or kill the plants. Tests are on-going in Argentina before a decision will be made as to the fly's suitability, along with other candidate species, for release as biocontrol agents against E. crassipes. |> H. Cordo hacordo@mail.retina.ar. Tripping Up the Beetles In a study designed to look for alternative controls for Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say) (Colorado potato beetle), known for its ability to develop resistance to insecticides, tomatoes transplanted into a mulch of Vicia sativa (hairy vetch) had a lower beetle infestation compared to tomatoes transplanted into black plastic mulch. The leguminous vetch, which impeded the movement of the beetles thus reducing their damage, also added nitrogen to the soil. Yields of vetch grown tomatoes were comparable to tomatoes treated with insecticides. |> K. Thorpe thorpe@asrr.arsusda.gov. excerpted with thanks from ARS news releases. GLOBAL IPM NOTES This year growers opting to plant Glycine max (soybean) capable of resisting glyphosate-type herbicides can choose from among at least 15 glyphosate-type products now on the market, offered by 10 or more manufacturers. |> A.G. Hager hager@uiuc.edu.

According to AgNet, an 11 April statement by the European Union's executive Commission (via Reuters) announced a pilot project for authorities in Europe and the USA to jointly conduct evaluation of a new herbicide for maize. If successful, the pilot project may lead to improved transatlantic cooperation in sharing the costs of evaluating new pesticides. |> D. Powell dpowell@uoguelph.ca.

The International Rice Research Institute (Los Banos, Philippines) recently marked its 40th anniversary, convened "Rice Research for the New Millennium" to commemorate four decades of scientific effort devoted to rice improvement, and hosted the 23rd International Rice Research Conference under the theme "Rice Research for Food Security and Poverty Alleviation," which attracted more than 150 participants. |> N. Dionson N.Dionson@cgiar.org.

A scientist listing crop pests in CAMEROON included porcupines, goats, monkeys, hawks, partridges, antelopes, and human beings [must be the local chapter of the "night gardeners"ed.].

A session on "Risk assessment for Fungal Biological Control Agents" will be included in the 22-27 April 2001 meeting of the British Mycological Society. |> T.M. Butt T.Butt@swansea.ac.uk.

LANDSCAPE IPM The revised (1999) version of PACIFIC NORTHWEST LANDSCAPE INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT MANUAL, though directed at one region in the U.S., presents widely applicable IPM tenets and generally useful landscape information. Authors V.M. Bobbitt, et al explain tree and shrub problem diagnosis and then set forth management options emphasizing ecologically oriented IPM. The softcover, spiral bound work, publication no. MISC-0201, contains 160 pages plus appendixes, but no illustrations. |> WSU Bulletins, PO Box 645912, Pullman, WA 99164-5912, USA. E-mail: bulletin@coopext.cahe.wsu.edu. Fax: 1-509-335-3006. Web: caheinfo.wsu.edu. IPM COMMUNICATIONS IN AFRICA In March 1998, the IPM Information Partnership, composed of several organizations interested in fostering global integrated pest management, organized and conducted a week-long IPM COMMUNICATIONS AND INFORMATION WORKSHOP FOR EASTERN AND SOUTHERN AFRICA (ICWESA). The purpose was to explore ways in which access to electronic mail and the internet could enhance communication and knowledge transfer of IPM in sub-Saharan (and Eastern) Africa. The proceedings for this event including presented papers, discussions, and more are available on the web at www.ag.vt.edu/amirault/ail/ipmcw/proceedings/proceed.htm mirrored at informatics.icipe.org/icwesa/, and now as a 165-page, softbound publication. |> G.A. Schaefers, CICP Director for African Initiatives, NYSAES, Cornell Univ., Geneva, NY 14456, USA. E-mail: gas1@nysaes.cornell.edu. Fax: 1-315-787-2418. Publication & CD Notes A forum convened in Japan during 1998 sought answers to the questions: Does microbial control still have a place in insect management? Which factors characterize the most (and least) successful microbial control programs? And, Are there features commonly found in both successful and failed projects? Papers that suggest answers to these points have been collected as "Factors in the Success and Failure of Microbial Insecticides" and published as vol. 4, no. 4, 1999, of INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT REVIEWS. Guest editors W.D. Gelernter and H.F. Evans include five articles, a panel discussion, and an overview. Since microbial insecticides based on insect pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and nematodes are an increasingly important pest management component, the presented material can be a valuable guide for planning and conducting both research and implementation. |> For IPM REVIEWS: Kluwer Academic Publishers, PO Box 17, 3300 AA Dordrecht, THE NETHERLANDS. E-mail: kluwer@wkap.com. For W.D. Gelernter: e-mail gelernt@pace-ptri.com.

The insect and pest control section and the entomology unit within the joint FAO/International Atomic Energy Agency program collaborate to publish the periodic INSECT AND PEST CONTROL NEWSLETTER. Included information covers a variety of activities, events, publications, and more. |> J. Hendrichs J.Hendrichs@iaea.org.

Two new resources from the Univ. of California (UC): LA SEGURIDAD EN EL MANEJO DE PESTICIDAS, Manual de Referencia para Aplicadores Privados, a 1999, 144-page Spanish language version of a popular illustrated publication, is well suited as both a study guide and general instruction source.

New in 2000, THE UC GUIDE TO SOLVING GARDEN AND LANDSCAPE PROBLEMS is a comprehensive, authoritative, and interactive CD covering a huge range of pest management information based on the acclaimed printed manuals developed by UC scientists. The CD contains over 2,800 screens with nearly 5,000 color photos and is said to offer "solutions to hundreds of garden problems." |> ANR Communications, Univ. of California, 6701 San Pablo Ave., Oakland, CA 94608-1239, USA. E-mail: danrcs@ucdavis.edu. Fax: 1-510-643-5470. Web: anrcatalog.ucdavis.edu. OTHER RESOURCES COMPREHENSIVE Bt INFORMATION Tucked away under layers of information on a U.S. Forest Service website resides one of the most comprehensive and readable information summaries available for the widely used biological insecticide Bacillus thuringiensis. This Pesticide Fact Sheet, while understandably oriented toward usage in forest settings, covers nearly everything one ever wanted to know about Bt from basic information, uses, and mode of action through environmental impacts. The fact sheet for this spore-forming bacterium states that, "Bt formulations have no known toxic or pathogenic effect in humans or other mammals." Web: www.fs.fed.us/foresthealth/pesticide/bacillus.html SOY ARTHROPOD DATABASE An extensive bibliographic database established in 1969 collects and indexes the world's research literature on soybean-related arthropods, and is now available via the Web at insectweb.inhs.uiuc.edu/Soy/Siric. The Soybean Insect Research Information Center (SIRIC) at the Illinois Natural History Survey's Center for Economic Entomology (U.S.) indexes all relevant literature according to a thesaurus prepared by professional entomologists. The graphically attractive site is free to all users. |> L.M. Hanson, SIRIC, 1101 W. Peabody Drive #144, Urbana, IL 61801, USA. E-mail: siric@uiuc.edu. LISTSERV FOCUSES ON WEED IMPACTS A lively, free, web-based listserv (e-mail discussion group) offers both the periodic ENVIROWEEDS BULLETIN as well as a forum for nearly 500 subscribers to exchange information. The activity is sponsored by the Cooperative Research Centre for Weed Management Systems and dedicated to disseminating a wide range of information on the management of environmental weeds in natural ecosystems in Australia. |> K. Blood, Kate.Blood@nre.vic.gov.au. VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS COLE CROPS IPM A new video, COLE CROP INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT, covers IPM as applied to both major and lesser known cole crops. The 31-minute work, by J. Chaput, a vegetable IPM specialist at Guelph, CANADA, and colleagues, emphasizes correct pest identification and monitoring methods as well as useful, realistic management strategies. |> OMAFRA; e-mail: products@omafra.gov.on.ca.

EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS New Device Cuts Spray Drift A new spray nozzle design devised to reduce droplet drift was unveiled during an April 2000 conference in the UK. Known as the Neale Thomas nozzle, the device directs a fanshaped air jet at a shallow angle toward the sheet of liquid spray emerging from a hydraulic nozzle's orifice. The jetted air generates modified droplet production and provides a finer spray, but one where these smaller droplets remain entrained within the air flow directed at the crop.

Wind tunnel assessments of a prototype Thomas nozzle indicate less potential for drift despite creating and applying smaller spray droplets that are normally prone to stray off target. Linking air jets to individual nozzles offers the advantage of being able to position nozzles in a manner so they project spray more selectively in relation to crop architecture and pest habitat.

The new nozzle is intended to help address the increasing conflict between requirements for efficient pesticide application demanded by optimized yield, versus avoidance of spray drift, elimination of off-target impacts, and maintenance of unsprayed buffer zones. |> G.A. Matthews g.matthews@ic.ac.uk.

BIRD PEST DETERRENT A 5cm (2in.) wide ribbon of 2 mil thick iridescent polyester foil holographically printed with a pattern of interlocking circles (resembling the eyes of owls, the natural enemy of many small birds) provides a visual, aural, and in some cases physical, deterrent to unwanted avian pests. IRRITAPE reflects sun (or any) light and when stirred by moving air brilliantly "flashes." The flashing and crinkling metallic sound made by the moving ribbon, plus its constantly changing patterns and colors, combine to create a threatening environment for many birds. |> M.
