IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS international IPM news and programs Note: Coincidentally, two major reports concerning biotech crops were released recently. While IPMnet NEWS holds no special brief for biotechnology as such, its impact and increasing presence clearly affect the future application and adoption of IPM. Thus, information about these two biotech-related reports follows. National Study Finds Biotech Does It All Sharply increase crop production on the same amount; significantly reduce the annual volume of pesticide applied; and generate truckloads of additional cash for agriculture. It's a win-win-win combination that reads like a proponent's wildest hope, but is, in reality, the prediction of an expert group based on extensive results from 40 studies of 27 biotech crops all across the U.S.A. The group's eye-popping summary report, PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY: CURRENT POTENTIAL IMPACT FOR IMPROVING PEST MANAGEMENT IN U.S. AGRICULTURE, AN ANALYSIS OF 40 CASE STUDIES," was compiled by L.P. Gianessi, et al, under the aegis of the National Center for Food and Agricultural Policy (NCFAP) in the U.S., and released in June 2002.

The analysis documents findings that 27 crops developed (or being developed) through biotechnology have the potential in the U.S. to increase annual production by an additional 6.35 billion kg (14 billion lb) of yield, improve farm income by US.5 billion, and reduce pesticide use by a whopping 74 mil. kg (163 mil. lb).

During the 2001 crop year, eight current biotech cultivars (insect resistant corn and cotton, herbicide tolerant canola, corn, cotton, and soybean, and virus resistant papaya and squash) together were said to increase crop yields by 1.8 billion kg (4 billion lb), save growers US.2 billion by cutting production costs, and reduce pesticide use by 21 mil. kg (46 mil. lb).

The visionary cumulative totals (above) arise from adding the potential from many more biotech cultivars still under development (tomato, citrus, peanut, etc.) to the results from the eight crops grown in 2001. The 40 case studies were reviewed by nearly 70 plant biotechnology experts in what is deemed "the most comprehensive evaluation of the impact on U.S. agriculture of crops developed through biotechnology."

Dr. Gianessi, beyond the triumvirate of gains mentioned above, also cites several instances where he feels biotechnology may rep-resent the only chance of avoiding huge food crop losses. "In nearly every case we evaluated," Gianessi noted, "biotechnology provides equal or better control of harmful pests at reduced costs."

NCFAP is a private, non-profit, non-advocacy research organization originally established in 1984. The massive 40-case biotech study was first supported by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation and later expanded with funding from several organizations with a clear interest in biotechnology. The report makes interesting reading for anyoneon either side of the biotech divide. *> NCFAP, 1616 P St. NW, Washington, DC 20036, USA. E-mail: < NCFAP@ncfap.org>. Fax: 1-202-328-5133.

Biotech Crop Impacts Surveyed A second just released, notable, science-based report on biotech crops focuses on environmental impacts, and determined that "a comprehensive review of the scientific literature supports the conclusion that overall the currently commercialized biotechnology-derived soybean, corn, and cotton crops yield environmental benefits. The June 2002 document, COMPARATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF BIO-TECHNOLOGY-DERIVED AND TRADITIONAL SOYBEAN, CORN, AND COTTON CROPS, was published by the U.S.-based Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST).

Based on a comprehensive review and critical analysis of the scientific literature, report authors J. Carpenter, et al, found that the three biotech-derived crops "pose no environmental concerns unique to or different from those historically associated with con-ventionally developed crop varieties."

The report is intended to address questions about a series of potential environmental impacts ranging from shifting pesticide use patterns and emergence of weedy crops to human exposure and land use efficiency. Building on their findings, the authors offer a series of measured and reflective recommendations.

An executive summary of the full report (in English, Chinese,French, Spanish, and Portuguese versions), as well as a PDF version of the entire 198-page document, and other background material, is available on line at: www.cast CAST is a non-profit organization that "assembles, interprets, and communicates science-basedinformation on .... food, fiber, agricultural, natural resource, and related societal and environmental issues." *> C.L.

Powell for information.

Pesticide Reduction Campaign Wins Prize The results of an effective, collaborative, multi-year effort to reduce indiscriminate and unneeded use of insecticides in Vietnam's Mekong Delta paddy rice farms has garnered a three-person research team the prestigious USK Saint Andrews Environmental Prize. International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) entomologist K.L.Heong, Leyte State University communications specialist M.M. Escalada, and Vietnam Plant Protection Department director Nguyen Huu Huan jointly devised a campaign utilizing a mix of methodsincluding radio dramas, posters, and leafletsto change farmer perceptions of insect damage and the need to rely on pesticides. Farmers learned that cer-tain "usual" insecticide applications were unnecessary and a waste of resources, as well as gaining familiarity with the concept of pre-serving natural enemies.

The sustained effort led to farmers' perceptions being replaced by economic rationale. Within five years, insecticide use was reduced 72 percent. Farmers who believed insecticides equated with higher yields fell from 83 to 13 percent. Realization that sprays killed natural enemies of insect pests rose dramatically.

According to Dr. Heong, the prize funds will be used to continue and expand the program and its potential benefits to farmers. *> K.L. Heong, . excerpted, with thanks, from an IRRI press release.

THREE NEW TITLES FORM CRC PRESS Guidelines for managing herbicide resistance The pressure herbicides exert on weed populations has led to selection of herbicide-resistant biotypes which can proliferate, become dominant, and cause crop yield losses. A newer hardbound, 328-page monograph, HERBICIDE RESISTANCE AND WORLD GRAINS, presents information prepared by international experts to address the issue and offer guidelines for managing, and to the extent possible, avoiding resistance in the world's major grain crops via a systems approach. Editors S.B. Powles and D.L. Shaner predict that "farmers will adopt herbicide-resistance management techniques and tools if they accept the economic sense of these practices." Impacts on crop fitness and production A broad overview of the impact biotic stressors exert on crops, and the subsequent yield reductions that often result, forms the basis for an informative 2001 volume, BIOTIC STRESS AND YIELD LOSS. With contributions from a group of experts, editors R.K.D. Peterson and L.G. Higley have crafted a unique discussion that widely ranges across all aspects of biotic stress and plant response and, in the end, sets forth key considerations for implementing IPM programs. The hardbound, 280-page work was judged by one noted authority to be "an indispensable resource for understanding the complex responses of plants to the attack of pests." The topic is important and fundamental to a wide range of scientific and technical specialties grappling with the challenges of crop management and crop protection.

An up-to-date analysis of herbicides A third monograph, HERBICIDES AND THEIR MODE OF ACTION, addresses the mechanisms of herbicides as well as their environmental impacts, and offers insight into the increasingly important aspect of the causes of herbicide resistance. Editors A.H. Cobb and R.C. Kirkwood drew upon an international contingent of contributors representing both commercial and academic sectors to produce a 320-page reference that obviously covers mechanisms of herbicide action, but reaches further to "provide a state-of-the-art appraisal" of the topic, accord-ing to the publisher. The hardbound, 10-chapter work was published in 2001. *> CRC Press, 2000 Corporate Blvd. NW, Boca Raton, FL 33431-9868, USA. E-mail: . Fax: 1-877-868-3083. Web: www.crcpress.com.

MONITORING INSECT PESTS IN ORCHARDS Many "IPM" publications offer more philosophy than practicality, but not ORCHARD PEST MONITORING GUIDE FOR PEARS, a tidy 62 pages of functional, "how-to-do-it" information. Authors P.D. VanBuskirk, et al, lay out the steps, the equipment, and the procedures for conducting an effective orchard insect pest scouting program. Puzzled by how to establish sampling areas? A section provides straight forward details and specifically lists the various data items needed. Though focused on pears (Pyrus communis), this 1999, softbound guide contains valuable information and insights for many other orchard crops and, indeed, fulfills its stated mission of helping to advance a more environmentally sustainable and economically feasible system of pest management. *> Book Div., Good Fruit Grower, 105 S. 18th St., Suite 217, Yakima, WA 98901, USA.

LETTUCE IPM NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD Bursting with clear full color photos, a 2002 publication from Australia combines a comprehensive guide to IPM in Lactuca sativa (lettuce) with a useful overview of IPM itself. INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT IN LETTUCE: INFORMATION GUIDE opens with several short sections setting the parameters for IPM, then moves into specific strategies for lettuce crop protection. The softbound work covers crop monitoring, matters of resistance, and of course, management of the big three: insects, weeds, and pathogens. Authors S. McDougall, et al, also have included appendixes, some with Australia-specific information, and others with broadly useful material such as a sample spray record. The 154-page, oversize guide not only provides practical information, but is attractively designed, printed on high-quality paperstock, and is a model of reader friendliness. *> NSW Agricul-ture Bookshop, < bookshop@agric.nsw.gov.au>.

EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, & SERVICES REVISED TRAP GOBBLES WHITEFLIES A newly revised inexpensive, environmentally friendly device has proven highly successful at capturing Bemisia argentifolii (silver leaf whitefly), an insect pest responsible for extensive damage to field and greenhouse crops. The trap, resembling an inverted plastic cup with a yellow ring at the bottom, is fitted with a green light-emitting diode (LED). Whiteflies are attracted to this light and caught in the durable trap which is especially effective in attracting whiteflies at night. Additionally, the LED trap is said to be "whitefly parasite friendly;"unlike many other traps on the market, it will control whiteflies without harming beneficial insects that attack whiteflies. The new trap also captures and kills whiteflies without the use of pesticides. *> C.C. Chu, ARS Western Cotton Research, 4135 E. Broadway, Phoenix, AZ 85040, USA. E-mail: . Fax: 1-602-437-1274.

E-mail requests to: IPMnet@bcc.orst.edu. Featured Paper Canola Types and Competitiveness Against Weeds Results of a recent study suggest that hybrid Brassica napus (canola) may be the best choice for use in an integrated weed management program, particularly for growers using organic or low-input cropping systems. Reporting in the CANADIAN JOURNAL OF PLANT SCIENCE, E. Zand and H.J. Beckie compared the competitiveness of three hybrid and three open-pollinated canola cultivars grown under several Avena fatua (wild oat) densities. Differences, based on measuring shoot dry weight or leaf area, indicated that the hybrids were twice as competitive compared to the open-pollinated varieties when weed interference was relatively high. In contrast, when weed pressure was lower there was little or no difference in competitiveness among cultivar types. *> H.J. Beckie, < BeckieH@em.agr.ca>. excerpted with thanks from CAN. JRNL.
