IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS international IPM news and programs Panel Calls for Increased Bt Crop Scrutiny A recently released report authored by a group of U.S. scientists affirms that "plants produced through modern biotechnology pose no different risk than plants produced through more traditional methods," but concludes that, for several reasons, the former should be more rigorously and publicly reviewed for potential environmental effects before being approved for commercial use. The 12-person panel of recognized biologists and agricultural scientists was convened by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) under a commission in 2000 from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) in an effort to ensure the safety of products developed through biotechnology.

Panel chairman F. Gould was quoted as saying that the shortfalls the report cited a need for increased regulation and field monitoring amounted to "small loopholes ....we are offering suggestions for a system that is functioning. We're not condemning the system," Dr. Gould observed.

The report notes that, while the USDA has not "missed any big environment risks" in the process of reviewing genetically modified plants, commercial biotechnology is moving so rapidly in developing plants with either individual inserted genes or combinations, that more thorough and transparent testing and review is needed than currently conducted.

While calling for an enhanced regulatory process for trangenics, the Panel noted that "the current level of regulation for such plants is higher than for other agricultural products and practices." Concern focused on "potential environmental effects," and the need for assessment of newly introduced crop varieties both transgenic and conventionally bred. *> NAS, nationalacademies.org for a press release (21 February 2002) and text of the full report.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information How Silent are the Roses? Extension entomologist R.G. Bellinger recently came across a very interesting news item. In a communication to pesticide safety specialists, he writes: "In a 'zine now on the store racks, nationally, called ROSES & ROMANTIC GARDEN FLOWERS (apparently one of the single topic, annual issues things?) a contributing editor supplies recommendations for getting rid of rose pests. Roses have pests to be gotten rid of.

"This editor goes mostly the non-chemical route and recommends squirting most of the pests off of the plants with a hose. Three cheers! He does recommend pesticides, specific pesticides, for some. However, even then he notes the problems with using pesticides in ways that kill the good guys who help control the bad guys. All is well in the world. And then...

"This author, out of the wild blue, recommends for the control of leafhoppers, rose leaf beetle, and rose chafer that old standby.... DDT. Yes, to control these pests he says to use DDT. The issue is copyright 2001. (I note we are at the 30 year anniversary for waving good-bye to this chlorinated hydrocarbon, but hey, I guess it will still keep showing up in the system for awhile.) Maybe he needed to save column inches and needed something with a short name. Or maybe a chemical that was easy to spell...

"The specific recommendation given is: '...dust with a five percent DDT solution...' . You may see another problem here. So, just when you thought we were making some headway...

"Roses are red, Violets are blue, Used DDT on 'em? I've got bad news for you!" Dr. Bellinger does find some positive ground in that "the up side of this one is talk and newsletter fodder! If you are talking or writing to Master Gardeners, or rose growers, or homeowners, and were hard pressed for a topic, well, here it is. Several ways to go here. Being careful where you get your information, no matter how slick it LOOKS is one. Checking with Extension to see if things you read or hear about are correct is another. What formulations are and how they are used might pass muster as well. Eventually we get to the bedrock theme though; Read and Follow the Label. Explicitly." *> R.G.

ALMOND IPM REVISED, EXPANDED The Univ. of California IPM program has published in 2002 the second edition of INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FOR ALMONDS, an information laden, graphically striking work with 27 percent more pages (199) than its 17-year-old predecessor. The new version adds an extensively revised chapter on vertebrate pest management, expands the chapter on vegetation management with details for cover crops, and provides several other updated sections including discussions of using Bt and pheromone-based mating disruption. The softbound volume also includes tables of susceptibility to major pests of almond (Prunus dulcis) rootstocks and cultivars. Over 250 photos, including 33 new color plates, illustrate this landmark reference (publication no. 3308). L.R. Strand wrote the revisions, based on the original edition by B.L.P. Ohlendorf, with technical input by a slate of specialist contributors. *> ANR Communication Services, 6701 San Pablo Ave., 2nd. Floor, Oakland, CA 94608-1239, USA. Fax: 1-510-643-5470.

LATEST BCPC PROCEEDINGS Proceedings of the 2001 BCPC CONFERENCE - WEEDS, present the mass of papers and information delivered at the event, and do so in the well organized and timely manner that are the hallmarks of this globally recognized annual session. The conference wove together four themes: weed management and biology, considering integrated crop management and weed control; weed science, covering herbicide mode of action, metabolism, herbicide resistance, and non-chemical weed control; environmental issues, noting the influence of climate and weather, environmental impact, and risk assessment; and, technology, including weed sensing, targeted control, developments in application and formulation, and biotechnology. The result appears in two softbound, 2001 volumes comprising a hefty 918 pages. *> BCPC Publications, Bear Farm, Binfield, Bracknell, Berks RG24 5QE, UK. E-mail: publications@bcpc.org.

thanks to E.F. Boller for information. EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, & SERVICES PARTICLE FILM STRATEGY EXPANDS Tests conducted in California during 2001 showed that particle film technology, used for management of insect pests in a variety of horticultural crops, also was effective in grape crops for limiting spread of Homalodisca coagulata (glassy-winged sharpshooter, GWSS), a vector of the devastating Xylella fastidiosa, (Pierce's disease). Scientists, using Surround [TM] WP crop protectant, developed a barrier strategy that forced GWSS away from vineyards adjacent to citrus groves. The kaolin-based product was sprayed onto plants before pest infestation, leaving a white particle film that was both visually unattractive and physically unappealing to GWSS; the material sticks to wings, legs, and mouth parts and deters oviposition. Surround WP's white coating also helps reduce sunburn as well as stress of summer heat by reflecting harmful UV and infra-red light; it easily rubs off fruit and vegetables under running water. Surround WP is said to significantly reduce use of conventional pesticides. It has gained approval for organic culture. The product was collaboratively developed by the Engelhard Corp. and the Agric. Research Service (ARS) of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. *> J.T. Mosko, Engelhard Corp., PO Box 770, Iselin, NJ 08830-1598, USA. E-mail: John.Mosko@engelhard.com. Fax: 1-732-321-1598.

............................................................................... For leading the breakthrough research that resulted in highly effective pest management using kaolin-based particle film technology, ARS scientist D.M. Glenn was named an Outstanding Senior Research Scientist in 2001, " .. for conceptualizing, developing, and transferring to industry a particle film composed of processed kaolin, a type of clay that controls pests and boosts plant productivity in an environmentally safe manner," according to a recent ARS news release.
