IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Australia: Medfly Eradication Costly Eradicating Ceratitis capitata (Mediterranean fruit fly, "Medfly") from the state of Western Australia is technically feasible, but would cost upwards of A million and require the State's fruit industries to expand by 18 percent for benefits to exceed costs, according to a recent report. Regional economist P. Eckersley said the report, prepared by a group of international and local consultants, estimated the need for a six-year program using the sterile insect technique (SIT) that would release up to 100 million sterile male flies per week. The cost-benefit analysis hinged on growers adopting the current practice of using bait and cover sprays to control Medfly.

A Medfly eradication program, noted Mr. Eckersley, would require a high level of community support and would build on the SIT programs successfully implemented overseas. However, statewide eradication would only be likely if the benefits of eradication increased significantly in the future. Other Australian regions are afflicted and so a national program, rather than a state-by-state effort, could be considered.

Copies of the report are available. *> P. Eckersley, WA Agriculture, Bunbury Regional Office, Box 1231, Post Office, Bunbury, WA 6230, AUSTRALIA. E-mail: PEckersley@agric.wa.gov.au. Fax: 61-08-9780-6136. Phone: 61-08-9780-6100.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information CIRAD Issues Activity Review In its latest annual activity report, the Centre de Cooperation Internationale en Recherche Agronomique pour le Developpement (CIRAD) highlights "The Fight Against Phytophthora: Understanding and Enhancing Resistance in Cocoa," as one of four important case studies. Phytophthora causes black pod disease which is said to be responsible for cocoa production losses averaging 30 percent worldwide and up to 80 percent in some regions. CIRAD 2000, the attractive, extensively illustrated report published in 2001 in both French and English versions, summarizes the genetic investigations and breeding programs being conducted to develop cocoa varieties that resist Phytophthora. The research investigation is combined with a practical focus on the needs of producers, processors, and consumers.

CIRAD is the French national scientific organization specializing in agricultural research for tropics and subtropics, and is active in more than 90 countries, has research scientists posted in 50 nations, and operates 10 research centers around the world. A crop protection section supports initiatives within the various crop research groups.

Along with the CIRAD 2000 hardcopy report, a 2001 version of the CIRAD CD-ROM is also available. *> CIRAD, 42 rue Scheffer, 75116 Paris, FRANCE. Fax: 33-01-47-551-530. Phone: 33-01-53-702-000. Website: www.CIRAD.fr.

USEFUL, DETAILED WEED GUIDE Yet another well organized, highly informative, graphically attractive package of weed information has been published recently in Australia. The latest is ENVIRONMENTAL WEEDS, A FIELD GUIDE FOR SE AUSTRALIA, a comprehensive text-and-visual summary of over 175 plant species considered either emerging or potential weeds. Author K. Blood introduces each of the 80-plus weeds with descriptions that include botanical, historical, economic, and geographic information; over 200 full-color photos and 85 distribution maps complement the crisp text. Many of the featured species are "escapes" from gardens or other venues and are thus tagged "garden thugs" with an appropriate symbol. Other cited weeds are toxic, or exhibit health impacting qualities. The 2001, 232-page, wire bound, easy to handle work will find beneficial use far beyond southeast Australia, both in terms of the breadth of data it contains as well as the overall superior presentation and detail of its information. *> C.H. Jerram & Associates, 2/13 Cheviot Rd., Mt. Waverley, VIC 3149, AUSTRALIA. Fax: 61-3-9807-9796. Phone: 61-3-9807-9795. A Bt CORN PRIMER The Canadian Corn Pest Coalition (representing a variety of private and public sectors) has produced an attractive, highly readable booklet, A GROWER'S HANDBOOK - CONTROLLING EUROPEAN CORN BORER WITH Bt CORN TECHNOLOGY (or, as GUIDE DU PRODUCTEUR - CONTROLE DE LA PYRALE DU MAIS EN UTILISANT LA TECHNOLOGIE DUE MAIS Bt), that provides clear, generic information on Bt-corn technology. Formulated as answers to a range of questions, the Handbook clearly describes both the pest and the approach for managing it, and covers key issues such as risk factors and the need for refugia, impacts on natural enemies and other fauna, and more. OMAFRA (Ontario Min. of Ag., Food and Rural Affairs) field crops pathologist A. Tenuta was the primary author for the effort, with input from other authorities including those in the U.S. Copies of the handbook can be obtained from a variety of sources in Canada, as well as freely downloaded from the Canadian website: www.ontariocorn.org/btguide.html. *> OMAFRA, Agron.

PROTECTION GUIDE PUBLISHED OMAFRA (see above) also has published FIELD CROP PROTECTION GUIDE (pub. #812), providing details of all the recommended insecticide and fungicides products available for the major field and stored grain insect and pathogen pests of Ontario (Canada) provincial field crop production. The 70-page book includes product rates and label warnings, as well as IPM options for each insect and disease. *> T. Baute, Ridgetown College, PO Box 400, Ridgetown, ONT. N0P 2C0, CANADA.

AFRICA An interesting 2001 title chronicles a collaboration that evolved from a "top down" project to a process of "bottom up" development in African subsistence agriculture. G.C.A. Bruin and F. Meerman, two scientists with extensive international IPM experience, authored NEW WAYS OF DEVELOPING AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGIES: THE ZANZIBAR EXPERIENCE WITH PARTICIPATORY INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT, which describes the results of farmer field school (FFS) approaches in five cropping systems over a span of 16 years and the lessons learned from successes and failures. The 167-page, softbound work includes numerous illustrations including 27 full color photos and concludes that FFS can succeed if several key, predominantly social, conditions are met. The program's evolution reflects a shift in emphasis over time from agriculture and science to rural sociology. *> A. van Huis, Laboratory of Entomology, Plant Sci., Wageningen Univ., PO Box 8031, 6700 EH Wageningen, THE NETHERLANDS.

PUBLICATION & CD NOTES PESTICIDE REDUCTION STUDIED IN GERMANY Pesticide reduction strategies and IPM implementation in German food crops form the core of a recent multi-part study, FROM LAW TO FIELD: PESTICIDE USE REDUCTION IN AGRICULTURE FROM PESTICIDE RESIDUE ANALYSES TO ACTION, published electronically by Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Germany. In addition to pesticide use analyses based on 5 years' data, the study includes case studies for pesticide use in apples and wheat as two crops evidencing residues. The study concluded that, while IPM practices have been adopted in apples, consumer demands for fruit quality, appearance, and cost lead to continued "intensive use of pesticides," according to the authors, whereas wheat offers far greater potential for pesticide reduction through changes in crop production. The November 2001 document, with portions in both English and German, can be freely downloaded from the PAN website www.pan-germany.net. *> PAN Germany, Nernstweg 32, 22765 Hamburg, GERMANY.

GM COTTON SHOWS PROMISE IN AFRICA A paper presented at the 2001 Biotechnology Conference for Sub-saharan Africa reported on a study that found farmers who planted a Bt cotton variety in one region of South Africa benefitted from the technology. The report, "Biotechnology in Africa: The Adoption and Economic Impacts of Bt Cotton in the Makhathini Flats, Republic of South Africa," revealed that increased yields and pesticide reductions outweighed higher seed cost, leading to elevated gross margins, especially in the wet second season of the two-year survey. Authors Y. Ismael, et al, caution that, while results provide cause for cautious optimism regarding the economic impact of Bt cotton, additional years of data are needed before the benefits economic or otherwise of a GM cotton crop can be accurately assessed for this particular growing region. The full paper can be found on the web at: www.agbioworld.org/biotech_info/topics/agbiotech/africa.pdf. *> Y. Ismael, Y.Ismael@reading.ac.uk. thanks to M. Rich for information.
