IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Report: Pesticides Will Remain Important in U.S. A committee chartered by the prestigious U.S. National Academies' National Research Council (NRC) concluded in a newly released report that chemical pesticides will continue to play a significant role in U.S. agriculture for at least the next decade, but also called for increased research, development, and deployment of alternatives. The NRC's Committee on the Future Role of Pesticides in U.S. Agriculture found no justification for completely abandoning chemical pesticides, not only because the environmental compatibility of pesticides is improving, but also because effective and affordable alternatives are not yet widely available. "No single pest management strategy will work in all ecosystems," noted entomologist M.R. Berenbaum, the Committee's chairperson, "so chemicals need to be part of an ecologically-based framework that can safely increase crop yields."

The 258-page report, THE FUTURE ROLE OF PESTICIDES IN U.S. AGRICULTURE, offers a wide-ranging sequence of pragmatic recommendations advocating increased investment by both public and private sectors aimed at creating and "maintaining a diversity of tools for maximizing flexibility, precision, and stability of pest management."

The Committee identified a series of promising opportunities for increasing benefits of, and reducing risks posed by, pesticide use, such as: promoting scientific and social initiatives to increase the competitiveness of pesticide alternatives; paying increased attention to so-called "minor" crops; and, providing incentives to develop and implement alternative pest management strategies.

Threat of Vast Blast May be Past A management strategy jointly explored by scientists from the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and Yunnan Agricultural Univ. (China) successfully and rapidly controls blast, a traditionally devastating fungal rice disease. The relatively simple strategy, as outlined in the colorful IRRI ANNUAL REPORT 1999-2000, involves interplanting different varieties of rice side-by-side in the same field. Field results revealed both a significantly lowered incidence of blast, plus increased crop yields. "The key," observed T. Mew, head of IRRI's Entomology and Plant Pathology Div., and an architect of the strategy, "is to use different varieties, with different resistance genes. Never plant the same varieties every season. Rotate them. Achieve an equilibrium," he explained. The process has an additional important benefit: substantially reduced fungicide usage.

Beyond minimizing blast's impact, now Dr.Mew's crew is investigating the potentially winning prospect of what, if any, effect varietal or germplasm diversification of rice cropping might have against other pests. > Information Services, IRRI, MCPO Box 3127, Makati City 1271, PHILIPPINES.

AUSTRALIA's Weedbuster Week concept was front and center during the recent 3rd International Weed Science Congress in BRAZIL, reports representative C. Walton. The Weedbuster Week poster won the "Communicating Weed Science" award, and the 700 attendees (representing 70 countries) at the Congress took away 250 copies of the poster in a handout version as well as badges, stickers, posters, and fridge magnets. Walton commented that, "Weedbuster Week got great coverage, generated a lot of interest, and hopefully this is one of the early steps in Weedbuster Week becoming international." > C. Walton, Craig.Walton@dnr.qld.gov.au.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Event Targets Environmental Weeds A national Australian 2-day event next October (see Calendar 1) will focus on the issues and people involved with weed management of open spaces, and emphasize the impact (costs, devastation) weeds can exert on natural and productive systems. WEEDSHOW 2000 is designed to raise the profile of environmental weeds, and the individuals linked with their management, through a combination of workshops and panels of experts along with an opportunity for numerous involved agencies, industries, and community groups to share achievements, display products, and disseminate information.

According to the organizers, WEEDSHOW 2000 is timely because: 1). Weeds "remain one of the greatest threats to the extent and quality of the Australian environment;" 2). Weed management strategies across all levels of government and the community have dramatically evolved during the past decade; and, 3). "Never before has there been such a substantial industry sector of researchers, consultants and technicians involved as the impact of weeds becomes evident on our natural and productive environment." > M. Coffey, GAV Inc., PO Box 525, Heidelberg, VIC 3024, AUSTRALIA. E-mail: MCoffey@gavic.org.au. Phone: 61-9457-3024.

Two New Titles from APS Press In 1999, North Carolina State Univ. (USA) hosted a 2.5-day conference designed to: stimulate development of new concepts and approaches for implementation and integration of emerging technologies in IPM; provide a forum for interdisciplinary education and the sharing of perspectives among disciplinary specialists that will be necessary to sustain the success of IPM; and to, identify constraints, problems, and needs with respect to the development, implementation, and adoption of emerging technologies in IPM. Proceedings of the event, which attracted attendees from 14 countries, have been published in 2000 as EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES FOR INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT: CONCEPTS, RESEARCH, AND IMPLEMENTATION, by the American Phytopathological Society (APS), edited by an interdisciplinary team of G.C. Kennedy and T.B. Sutton. The 544-page, hardbound work presents papers on an array of topics relevant to advancing IPM, from diagnostic techniques to sociological aspects, and ranks as one of the most thorough recent overviews of IPM's original roots and current direction.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ A new, 376-page monograph, ADVANCES IN VERTICILLIUM RESEARCH AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT, comprises the more than 60 papers offered during the 7th International Verticillium Symposium held in 1997. E.C. Tjamos, et al, have edited the material from this highly international and informative event into a useful softcover reference work. > APS Press, 3340 Pilot Knob Rd., St. Paul, MN 55121-2097, USA.

WEED MANAGEMENT IN AUSTRALIA Australia's recently published first textbook on integrated weed management presents a straight-forward overview of contemporary weed management, not surprisingly from an Australian perspective. In AUSTRALIAN WEED MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS, editor B.M. Sindel has drawn on expertise from leading weed scientists across the nation and coherently organized 24 chapters into five sections ranging from weed biology and ecology, through integrated weed strategies and techniques, to a discussion of future challenges. Case studies are included to illustrate the diversity of approaches to effective weed management. The softcover, 506-page work was produced by the Cooperative Research Centre for Weed Management Systems and represents clear evidence of the increasing awareness of the extensive costs weeds impose on various enterprises and the resulting need for weed science research and training. > RG and FJ Richardson Publishers, PO Box 42, Meredith, VIC 3333, AUSTRALIA.

PLANT DISEASE COMPENDIUM ONLINE Extension scientists at Oregon State Univ. (USA) have developed a comprehensive plant/crop disease information resource written in clear, understandable text and featuring tons of color photos. The latest ONLINE GUIDE TO PLANT DISEASE CONTROL (plant-disease.orst.edu) allows readers to select a plant, or a disease, click on a menu, and let the site's extensive database deliver the desired data. For example, clicking on "wheat" brings up a list of 28 diseases, each of which can then be accessed for details and specific management recommendations. Other interesting material is included such as a discourse on nematodes, improving spray efficiency, and a description of fungicide families. While the site is aimed at the Northwestern section of the USA, a large share of the information contained could well be useful in many other regions. The site was authored by pathologists J.W. Pscheidt and C.M. Ocamb. A parallel hardcopy version is also available as the 2000 PACIFIC NORTHWEST PLANT DISEASE MANAGEMENT HANDBOOK. > J.W. Pscheidt PscheidtJ@bcc.orst.edu. WEED BIOCONTROLS LISTED Newly arrived on the web, CLASSICAL BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF WEEDS is sub-titled "The Use of Beneficial Organisms for Control of Weeds in Canada," but has both broader use and a highly rational organizational approach. The site res2.agr.ca/lethbridge/weedbio/index.htm lists 29 weed species, plus aquatics, and a long list of their biocontrol agents. Weeds can be found by common name, species, or family. Certain key weeds are described in depth. For each weed, there follows a brief analysis (in a reader-friendly format) of the specific biocontrol agents, the year first released, the status and degree of control, and the type of damage. This well presented information resource includes a glossary and other support data. > Weed Biological Control Lab, Research Ctr., PO Box 3000, Lethbridge, ALB T1J 4B1, CANADA.
