IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs GEORGE A. SCHAEFERS The Consortium for International Crop Protection sadly announces the death on 28 March 2001 of George A. Schaefers, past executive director of the Consortium and long-time active member of its Board of Directors. Dr. Schaefers, an entomologist with strong links to African entomologists and programs, was Professor Emeritus at Cornell University (USA), and involved during his entire career in various aspects of entomology research and education locally, nationally, and internationally. "He was," noted current Consortium executive director R.E. Ford, "an effective international champion of IPM." A Vision of IPM in the Future Integrated pest management stands as one of the stronger agricultural constructs to emerge in the 20th century. Yet looking ahead, will IPM's acknowledged strengths and benefits be able to withstand the future onslaught of drastically changing conditions and increasing pressures, and if so, how might the IPM concept itself have to evolve? Two scientists recently peered into their dusty crystal ball and determined that a potent combination of societal and natural factors will ultimately shape IPM's future evolution, adoption, and application. From their vantage point as IPM researchers, M. Kogan and W.I. Bajwa envision a mix of increasing pressure on pesticide usage by consumers in the marketplace expressed through governmental action, a global upsurge of invasive species, and shifts in climatic conditions individually and collectively that could exert dynamic impacts on the future shape of IPM.

In a recently presented paper, the scientists agree that pesticides will remain an integral part of IPM in the foreseeable future. However, industry, given proper incentives and with an increased understanding of pest species' vulnerable target sites, will develop effective new products. These innovative pesticides will replace old compounds and be both significantly more selective and environmentally sensitive.

Advances in crop pest management research can be expected to accelerate, note Kogan and Bajwa, as "old" pesticides disappear, and strategies shift to softer, more environmentally integrated methods. Use of both sex and food attractants will grow as science produces more effective materials and improved dispensing methods. Crops with genetically engineered characteristics certainly will become a key element in the pest management toolbox.

The explosion in information systems based on personal computers, other devices, and expanded Internet access will play a major role for growers faced with critical decisions in IPM implementation. Global information systems coupled with increasingly accessible geographic positioning system devices will help managers identify emerging problem areas and improve IPM planning and deployment. If anything, IPM already an intensely information-dependent exercise is likely to be even more heavily information-based as scouting, pest identification, threshold determination, and other related techniques become the norm instead of the cutting edge.

The prognosticating scientists also posit that IPM will: mature; trigger greater regional cooperation needed to advance IPM to higher levels of integration; and expand the areawide IPM concept to include the entire pest complex, not only the targeted pest.

As a bottom line, crop protection, including IPM, will remain a key component of sustainable agriculture and the backbone of an overall holistic integrated production approach backed by market forces particularly in an era of burgeoning global trade and governmental action that induce producers to innovate and promptly adopt new, more environmentally compatible technologies.

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information IPM Award Nominees Sought in California IPM innovators wanted! According to a press release, the U.S. state of California seeks nominees for its annual IPM Innovators Awards. The awards, established in 1994, have honored 63 innovators ranging from major agricultural producers to urban community groups. The program was conceived to encourage cooperative, local problem solving and to foster an environment where pesticide users try innovative practices. Award criteria include:

"A history of using biological and cultural pest control techniques to deal effectively with pests in a particular situation or pest management system; Use of pesticides only when necessary to achieve acceptable levels of control with the least impact on non-target organisms and the environment; and, A demonstrated willingness to share technical information with others, as well as research and development efforts that stress communication with peer groups." *> C.

COPING WITH PIERCE'S DISEASE An informative, beautifully designed 2001 publication from the Univ. of California/Davis, PIERCE'S DISEASE, concisely covers key aspects related to a devastating bacterial malady (Xylella fastidiosa) of grapevine transmitted by four major insect vectors in the sharp-shooter subfamily. The 20-page, softbound work incorporates 26 color photos to graphically describe Pierce's disease symptoms, and to identify vectors. The text covers the role alternative plants serve as a reservoir for the bacteria, discusses pattern variations of disease spread for various vectors, and suggests methods to monitor vectors. Authors L.G. Varela, et al conclude with a section devoted to practical management strategies. Pub. #21600. *> ANR Communications, 6701 San Pablo Ave., 2nd. floor, Oakland, CA 94608-1239, USA.

FARM CHEMICALS HANDBOOK UPDATED The latest annual edition of the massive reference, FARM CHEMICALS HANDBOOK 2001, fills its more than 1000 pages with detailed technical information for thousands of products, and extends beyond pesticides and fertilizers to cover biocontrols including "biochemical pest control agents, biocontrol agents, predators and parasites, and microbials." While the section on regulatory compliance is U.S. oriented, the softbound Handbook contains a huge information base of global interest. Over 40 percent of the included data is said to have changed in each annual edition. A comprehensive index lists all product trade names, terms, and regulations while a Buyer's Guide is said to comprise 20,000 entries in 4,100 categories. *> Meister Publishing Co., 37733 Euclid Ave., Willoughby, OH 44094-5992, USA.

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 titles that follow. E-mail requests to: IPMnet@bcc.orst.edu. Featured Paper Severe Leaf Damage: Impacts on Rice Yield Depend on Plant Stage Researchers in Cambodia simulated pest defoliation of rice plants as a method to evaluate types and levels of (primarily insect) damage affecting yields at various crop stages. Removing 50 percent of the leaves from rice seedlings, or at the tillering stage, did not reduce yields. But at the booting stage, the same leaf loss dropped yields an average 21 percent. Writing in International Rice Research Notes (IRRN), B. Khiev et al suggest that, based on these results, rice has considerable capacity to compensate for drastic leaf damage, and that most leaf damage before panicle initiation is not worth preventing. *> Excerpted, with thanks, from: Khiev, B., et al, "Effects of Simulated Pest Damage on Rice Yields," IRRN, 25(3), 27-28, December 2000.
