IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS international IPM news and programs U.S. GM-Crops Experience Analyzed A recent discussion paper from the U.S.-based International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) aimed to collect and characterize the economic impacts of transgenic (GM) crops to date, organize the resulting material, and determine whatif anygeneral implications might be drawn from the findings. THE PAYOFFS TO AGRICULTURAL BIOTECHNOLOGY: AN ASSESSMENT OF THE EVIDENCE, by M.C. Marra, et al , presents and analyzes available evidence, and offers three broad observations:

In most years, growing GM cotton Gossypium hirsutum is likely to reduce pesticide usage, and is likely to be profitable in most of the U.S. "cotton belt" states; Bt corn Zea mays will provide a small but significant yield increase across the U.S. "corn belt" in most years, with substantial increases in some years and some locales; and, Although there is some evidence of a small yield loss in "Roundup Ready"(TM) soybean Glycine max compared to conventional varieties, in most years and locations cost savings in pesticides, and possibly tillage, will more than offset lost revenue from lower yields. The reportDP #87, available in PDF from the IFPRI site at: www.ifpri.cgiar.org concludes that currently there is insufficient data to project the above conclusions to other countries, and that additional studies should be undertaken to measure non-pecuniary benefits and costs. *> IFPRI, 2033 K St., NW, Washington, DC 20006, USA. M.C. Marra . thanks to D. Powell for initial information.

Industry Shifts Impact Weed Science An internationally concerned weed scientist recently commented that since "The status of weed science is rapidly changing, due to industry consolidation," there will be ever fewer opportunities for newly mint-ed weed scientists to become employees of the remaining large pesti-cide companies, and very likely financial resources for a variety of weed science-related activities will shrink significantly. Writing in the latest issue of the INTERNATIONAL WEED SCIENCE SO-CIETY NEWSLETTER, Society president S.O. Duke also observed that, as the major players in the pesticide industry consolidate, "They become less interested in smaller markets, leaving opportunities for small companies." For instance, in the U.S. Dr. Duke notes increased activity among smaller companies in addressing the weed problemswhich clearly remainand that the major firms have all but abandoned.

"These smaller companies seem more willing to work with the public sector to discover and develop solutions," Duke said. He continued that, "From the ashes of companies that have been victims of mergers, we may see a new generation of companies with new interests and new approaches." In summary, Duke called for the scientists working in these smaller organizations to become involved with, and demonstrate support for, local weed science societies. *> S.O. Duke, President, International Weed Science Society, . thanks to Dr. Duke (and the IWSS Newsletter) for permission to quote his printed remarks.

1. MUTING THE FRUIT FLY In Vietnam .... .... A collaborative international project underway aims at "Man-aging Pest Fruit Flies to Increase Production of Fruit and Vegetable Crops in Vietnam," aims to significantly reduce the major damage in-flicted annually to crops by this pest. Research will initially ascer-tain the economically important fruit fly species and host fruits in each region, quantify damage levels, and determine seasonality. Plans call for introducing environmentally-friendly, pre-harvest control by bait spraying. There will be strong emphasis on training to upgrade staff identification skills, conduct biological studies, and to devel-op and implement field control campaigns. *> G. Banova, Australian Embassy, Hanoi, VIETNAM. E-mail: . thanks to A.S. Cooper for information. In the U.S. .... .... Recent research found that grapefruit growers can reduce the chance of Mexican fruit fly (Mff) infestation by removingafter har-vestall fruit remaining on trees or on the ground. When wild-strain Mff adults emerge from the ground, they are likely to feed on whatever is nearby, so prompt removal of all residual post-harvest fruit can cause the pest to search elsewhere for food and be less conditioned to seek out fruit crops the following season. *> D. Robacker, ARS-USDA, 2413 E. Hwy. 83, Weslaco, TX 78596-0000, USA. E-mail: . In South Australia .... .... Western Australia will provide more than 5 million sterile male Mediterranean fruit flies (medflies) each week to help South Australia prevent a reoccurrence of last year's medfly outbreak. The irradiated male medflies are aerially released for use against wild females in the field. They will be one element of an integrated approach involving limited pesticide use, "backyard" fruit hygiene, and other measures. The feasibility of a statewide eradication campaign is also under consideration. *> B. Woods, Western Australia Agriculture, Locked Bag 4, Bentley Delivery Ctr., WA 6983, AUSTRALIA. E-mail: . thanks to S. Lloyd and B. Woods for information.

In Full Color .... .... A set of two, full color, 97x75cm (38x30in.) posters lamina-ted with high quality 80 micron material depicts FRUIT FLY PESTS OF THE WORLD. Each of the included 64 species is shown in a color photo of an adult fly, mostly photographed live, along with information on world distribution of the species and the major types of fruit at-tacked. Additionally, the set lists lures that are most suitable for use in fruit fly traps targeted at each species. A second two-poster set depicts FRUIT FLIES OF AUSTRALIA. *> Scientific Advisory Ser-vices, PO Box 1056, Tully, QLD 4854, AUSTRALIA. Fax: 61-7-4065-4991. E-mail: . Web: saspl.com.au 2. A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY VIEW OF IPM Integrate the accumulated knowledge represented by a highly re-garded weed scientist-plant pathologist-entomologist trio, turn the three lose on their keyboards, and the result is CONCEPTS IN INTE-GRATED PEST MANAGEMENT, one of the more insightful and balanced treatises in print onand aboutIPM. The triangulated viewpoints of authors R.F. Norris, et al make it amply clear that weeds, pathogens, and pest insects generate threats to crops that are col-lective and interlinked. This "real world" approach avoids disci-plinary myopia and offers both case histories and practical examples of pest interaction. Twenty chapters and 586 pages combine to address all important aspects of IPMfrom individual tactics to resistance development, and even topics that are, for some, controversial. An extensive glossary and a useful listing of pest organisms round out the package. The 2003, hardbound volume contains numerous black and white photos, plus 48 full color photos on the front and back end sheets. *> Prentice-Hall, Inc., One Lake St., Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458, USA.

3. ARTHROPOD BIOCONTROL - AUSTRALIA A work published in 2001 by the Australian Centre for Interna-tional Agricultural Research (ACIAR) in collaboration with CSIRO chronicles attempts at biocontrol of 98 pests (or groups) totaling some 150 species, mostly exotic. Not only does CLASSICAL BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF ARTHROPODS IN AUSTRALIA summarize results, the hardbound monograph presents a short dossier on each pest or group, plus details of the more important natural enemies. Authors D.F. Waterhouse (dec.) and D.P.A. Sands use a general overview to note that, of the 70 or so species targeted in identified projects, 30 are now under control, and another 20 are no longer important pests. The 559-page book, ACIAR Monograph No. 77, also points out that, with just one exception, no native arthropod pests have been found to be susceptible to biocon-trol. *> P.W.

IV. U.S. REGIONAL PEST MANAGEMENT CENTERS news, developments Pest Management Newsletters Multiplying Judging by the truck load of pest management (PM) related news-letter titles listed on the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Pest Management Centers website, PM information dissemination is alive and buzzing in the USA. By clicking on "News/Alerts," then "Pest Management Newsletters," on the website www.pmcenters.org the intrepid web traveler can access over 70 periodic newsletters emanating from 34 states. And there are others not here listed. The offerings run the gamut from general to crop or pest specific. Most of the periodicals have a geographic bias, but not all. Many in-clude detailed PM, or scouting, or safety procedures. A large number either spring to life or increase their frequency of publication dur-ing cropping seasons, only to lapse into hibernation during the winter while others soldier on year round.

Most are web-accessible and (just like the opus you are reading) transfer the onus of printing to the recipient to eliminate printing and mailing costs. Some newsletters include graphics in addition to text. Most are written by individuals with front line, hands-on field/ lab experience. Some have started out bravely, but stumbled over bud-get slashes and personnel departures. Many eschew graphic niceties for a straightforward, pure information approach.

Whatever the editorial slant and production level, the aggregated result bulks as a massive country-wide effort and a testament to the importance and sensitivity of modern day, effective pest management information dissemination and communication.
