IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Growers See Benefits in Biotech Soybeans A recently reported study commissioned by the largest U.S. soybean grower association revealed that more than half of the 450 growers polled credited biotech-derived soybeans as the main reason they were able to adopt reduced tillage practices leading to less loss of topsoil, reduced soil compaction, and significant fuel savings. The American Soybean Association (ASA) study confirmed that 73 percent of the growers in the study leave more crop residue on the soil surface than they did five years ago before herbicide-tolerant soybeans were introduced. Growers have increased both "no-till" and minimum tillage practices, and 53 percent said they now make fewer tillage passes across soybean fields.

The Association calculated that reduced tillage in soybeans during 2000 alone "saved 247 million tons of irreplaceable topsoil," and cut fuel usage 886 million ltrs. (234 mil. gal.) due to decreased trips across fields. *> ASA, 12125 Woodcrest Executive Dr., Suite 100, Saint Louis, MO 63141, USA. E-mail: BCallanan@soy.org. Fax: 1-314-576-2786.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information Potpurri of Phytopathologicality Plant-Pathogen Relationships Explored The UK-based Institute of Arable Crops Research (IARC) annual report for 2000-2001 provides an informative and graphically appealing review of the Institute's diverse research activities. Within the 100-page, softbound, extensively illustrated publication, one of the six research themes profiled is that of Plant-Pathogen Interactions. Under the direction of J.A. Lucas, the division's mission is "to develop effective, durable, economic and environmentally sound strategies for the control of crop diseases through an improved understanding of the interactions between plants, pathogenic agents and the environment." Staff scientists are developing strategies for detection and diagnosis of plant diseases including novel molecular methods for identifying fungal pathogens in crops. Early detection and diagnosis are seen as keys to more accurate forecasts of diseases, along with improved precision of fungicide application and other control measures. *> J.A. Lucas, John.Lucas@bbsrc.ac.uk. For information about the report: *> S. Bolton, IARC-Rothamsted, Harpenden, Herts. AL5 2JQ, UK. E-mail: Susannah.Bolton@bbsrc.ac.uk. Fax: 44-01-582-760981. Phone: 44-01-582-763133. Website: www.res.bbsrc.ac.uk.

Avoiding Fungicide Resistance The Canadian Province of Ontario's Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs lists tactics for staving off development of fungicide-resistant pathogens. Use multiple countermeasures against crop diseases: disease resistant crop varieties; biological controls; and appropriate hygienic practices, such as crop rotation, removal of diseased parts of perennial crop plants, and clean seeds.

Once verified, treat diseases in their early stages before further spread occurs when there is a better chance for eradication; in the case of a fungus, early treatment leaves fewer spores that could possibly develop resistance.

Vary the fungicides used, if possible, to avoid a fungal pest becoming less vulnerable: rotate products with differing modes of action as another defense against developing resistance; keep accurate records of crops, fungicide(s) applied, as well as number and timing of applications.

Be sure to scrupulously adhere to a label's recommended dose; applying less of a product when an infestation doesn't seem widespread might get rid of the immediate problem, but lower doses could provide an opportunity for fungi to survive a treatment and potentially build up resistance to the fungicide. Coming: DNA-based Pathogen Identification Under a recently announced cooperative agreement, trials will test the efficacy of portable, DNA-based devices that can identify plant disease organisms in less than 60 minutes, compared to days or weeks by traditional methods. The devices use a polymerase chain reaction to replicate a target pathogen's DNA its unique genetic fingerprint and thus detect trace levels of DNA from disease-causing pathogens. The process generates a fluorescent signal that is measured and displayed on a laptop computer.

Manufactured by Cepheid, the portable detection systems are being tested by the U.S. Agricultural Research Service whose scientists are using their expertise in bacterial, fungal, and viral genetics to design primers and probes targeting specific DNA sequences of major plant pathogens including Pierce's disease, citrus canker, watermelon fruit blotch, bacterial wilt, brown rot of potato, potato ring rot, Karnal bunt, soybean rust, and plum pox. *> Cepheid, 1190 Borregas Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94089-1302, USA.

PLANT INVADERS IN AUSTRALIA An attractive, information-packed 2001 publication could set the standard for perceptive discussion of plants labeled "weeds." Not only does BUSH INVADERS OF SOUTH-EAST AUSTRALIA serve as an admirable field guide to the identification and control of environmental weeds found in south-east Australia, its graphically pleasing format is both user-friendly and broadly inclusive. For each of the more than 150 species, subspecies, varieties, and hybrids included in this 304-page work, author A. Muyt provides the usual nomenclature, plus pre-introductory origin, form, and distribution in Australia, accompanied by one or more clear full color photos. There follows a unique summary of why each species is invasive, its diagnostic features, and its forms of reproduction and dispersal. Control and removal are discussed. Notes are provided for similar invasive species as well as on indigenous species that may be confused with an invader. Each entry concludes with a set of reference numbers referring to the more than 370 titles grouped at the back of the softbound work. Since the bulk of the species mentioned are prevalent elsewhere, the information set out could be highly useful far beyond the targeted region. *> R.G./F.J. Richardson, Publishers, Timbarra, PO Box 42, Meredith, VIC 333, AUSTRALIA. E-mail: Richardson@weedinfo.com.au. Fax/Phone: 61-03-5286-1533. Website: www.weedinfo.com.au. WHERE ARE THE WEEDS? A very tastefully designed 2000 work employing clever use of a second ink color throughout for emphasis presents a dilemma: NATURAL CROP PROTECTION IN THE TROPICS, while covering a wide range of crop pests, fails to even mention, much less discuss, one of the rampant pest challenges in many tropical crops weeds. The 376-page, hardbound volume primarily focuses on insect pests and on other-than-pesticidal methods of pest management. Author G. Stoll and collaborators have built on a 1986 edition then entitled NATURAL CROP PROTECTION and significantly expanded the themes of self-help, farmer participation, and indigenous methodologies. References to diseases, mollusks, and vertebrates are included, but where are the weeds? It's a pity that such a useful, attractive, well-intentioned publication bears such a awning void. Or is a companion weed treatise still in press? *> Margraf Verlag, PO Box 1205, 97985 Weikersheim, GERMANY. THREE DECADES OF POTATO RESEARCH Celebrating 30 years of operation, the Peru-based Centro Internacional de la Papa (CIP, International Potato Center) has published an oversize, information-rich Program Report 1999-2000 covering the last two years of research, but reflecting on the progress made over three decades of investigation and development. Themes of crop protection and IPM are woven all through the 480-page, softbound report, SCIENTIST AND FARMER, PARTNERS IN RESEARCH FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. The 2001 volume introduces CIP's research portfolio followed by a series of detailed reports with charts, data, references, and (in several cases) full color illustrations. *> CIP, Apartado 1558, Lima 12, PERU. E-mail: CIP@cgiar.org. Website: www.cipotato.org. PUBLICATION & CD NOTES AGRO-ECO IMPACTS OF Bt REVIEWED Dutch entomologists A.T. Groot and M. Dicke speculate in a new report that transgenic crops have the potential to impact a wide range of both below-, and above-ground, non-target organisms, and liken the results to the undesirable effects of broad-spectrum chemical control agents in terms of devastating natural enemies and elevating minor pests to major pest status. The 80-page study, TRANSGENIC CROPS IN AN AGRO-ECOLOGICAL CONTEXT: MULTITROPHIC EFFECTS OF INSECT-RESISTANT PLANTS," (ISBN: 90-6754-652-6) seeks to resolve whether "Bt-toxins applied as spray or in a transgenic plant" have any (possible) direct or indirect effects on non-target insects that are present in the same food web as the target insects, and also addresses the potential for resistance development. The authors draw a number of conclusions and propose a checklist of questions that should be addressed to determine (possible) undesirable (and unintended) effects of insect-resistant transgenic crops. *> M.

WEBSITE, VIDEO, & OTHER SOURCES PLANT HEALTH E-JOURNAL DEBUTS A broad group of interested organizations help support PLANT HEALTH PROGRESS (PHP) a newly created, multidisciplinary, science-based, not-for-profit journal covering all aspects of applied plant health management. Both peer reviewed and fully citable, the journal is a refereed online-only publication found at: www.planthealthprogress.org. PHP was established to provide a comprehensive one-stop Internet resource for plant health information, according to a news release from PHP staff housed at the American Phytopathological Society. The journal, edited by T. Murray, is designed to reflect an interdisciplinary, applied focus targeted at the entire plant community: public and private practitioners, growers, diagnosticians, researchers, advisors, field personnel, manufacturers, regulatory officials, and public policy makers basically anyone involved in plant health-based practices. PHP invites submissions and offers a subscription plan for a modest fee. A free e-mail newsletter is also available to inform readers about new information being added to the PHP site. *> PHP, 3340 Pilot Knob Rd., St. Paul, MN 55121-2097, USA.

FAO STARTS IPM DISCUSSION GROUP The Global IPM Facility at FAO-Rome has launched an electronic discussion group, Global-IPM-L, a moderated list established to encourage focused discussion on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Integrated Production and Pest Management (IPPM) topics. Facility coordinator P.E. Kenmore noted that the list aims to promote information on the implementation of IPM/IPPM, and to establish stronger linkages among individuals working at governmental and non-governmental institutions. Expected participants will be IPM/IPPM practitioners and decision makers involved in promoting IPM/IPPM. Messages to be posted on the Global-IPM-L list should be sent to: Global-IPM-L@mailserv.fao.org . The list is being managed by K. Gallagher Kevin.Gallagher@fao.org and E. Tagliati Elisabetta.Tagliati@fao.org. *> Global IPM Facility, FAO Rome - AGPP, Viale Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, ITALY.

NURSERIES AND INVASIVE PLANTS A study conducted in 2000, "Invasive Plants and the Nursery Industry," aimed to assess the perceptions of the horticultural nursery industry (in the U.S.) toward invasive plants (IPs), plus gain a sense of the industry's willingness to help control further dispersal of IPs. An e-mail survey was used, but resulted in less than a 20 percent return. However, responses indicated both a concern about limitations on plant material that could be marketed, but also a willingness to have newly introduced plants tested and to educate consumers about IPs and their alternative species. The study, by M. Hall, and related material is on the web at: members.home.net/meredithhall/IPlants/index.html. *> M. Hall, Meredith@earthling.net.

EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, & SERVICES SELF-PROPELLED WEED "WIPER" A newly introduced self-propelled weed "wiper's" unique features include narrow motorcycle-type wheels/tires that reduce crop damage, and a triboom configuration capable of covering a 15.2 m. (50 ft.) wide swath. A 21 hp gasoline engine powers the hydrostatic 2-wheel drive, and steering systems. Front wheels are spaced 35.5 cm (90 in.) apart and the rear pair 76 cm. (30 in.); other widths can be specified. The three front mounted booms are hydraulically controlled and can be raised or lowered to follow ground contours while travelling just above crop height. The operator uses control valves to adjust contact herbicide flow rates to each non-pressurized, canvas wrapped boom. Flow rates remain stable even when booms are slanted thus permitting application on sloping terrain. A foam marker is fitted to eliminate double coverage. Three oil coolers are employed. Shields separate the crop vegetation ahead of the front wheels. *> Manchester Mfg., PO Box 36, Manchester, OK 73758-0036, USA. E-mail: MMfg@kanokla.net. Phone: 1-580-694-2292.
