BIOPESTICIDES SELECTED FOR CANADIAN REGISTRATION

Canadian officials recently conducted a first-of-its-kind one-day national workshop to select which of numerous biopesticidal products would be chosen by users and others for further development and regulatory support.

The pilot event, attended by growers, researchers, biopesticide registrants, and other specialistsmany participating by video conferencediscussed a wide range of issues and recommended products before eventually selecting three materials to submit for initial registration in CANADA, and naming three others for label expansion to new uses against priority pests.

During the next two years, the Canadian governmental Biopesticide Team will collaborate with growers, research specialists, and registrants to develop needed data, compile registration packages for the selected products, and submit findings to the nation's Pest Management Regulatory Agency.

Based on the collaborative approach and results from the workshop, a similar event is being planned for 2011, taking into account experience and processes arising from the 2010 workshop, according to official Pest Management Centre (PMC) information. -> T.

NEW IPM LOBBY GROUP FORMING

A group of U.S.-based individuals with links to, or interests in, IPM has announced an effort to form IPM Voice, an independent organization designed to advocate and lobby for “progressive integrated pest management to improve environmental, social and economic conditions through the application of scientific principles,” according to a recent mass mailing email message.

The group’s message says that impetus for establishing IPM Voice arises from planned future major reductions in federal funding for key IPM-related activities, and a perceived need to secure the attention of decision-makers and thereby generate the financial resources the group indicates IPM deserves and needs.

The message points out that, despite 30 years of nationwide science and field activity to increase adoption of IPM to benefit agriculture, communities, health, and the environment, key federal officials still seem largely unaware of IPM and fail to recognize its multiple benefits.

IPM Voice currently seeks financial contributions from anyone and is said to have developed its mission based on input from some 40 professionals representing industry, government, universities, and non-governmental organizations. After start up, the organization intends to operate with support from an annual dues structure.

By supporting IPM Voice, an entirely volunteer effort at this point the email notes, donation of monetary contributions “can help educate key decision-makers about the importance of IPM” across agriculture, schools, workplaces, and other settings. The organizational activities and funding solicitation for IPM Voice are presently housed at the IPM Institute of North America in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The Institute focuses on non-agricultural IPM. -> L. Presley, IPM Voice, 4510 Regent St., Madison, WI 53705, USA. Fax; 1-608-232-1440. Info@ipmvoice.org. Voice: 1-608-232-1410. www.ipmvoice.org.

Comment: There is ample room for additional effort in the IPM vineyard and IPMnet NEWS, as a 16-year veteran of global dissemination of IPM-related information, is glad to extend a welcoming nod to IPM Voice. While the public-sector funded NEWS reaches 7,100+ subscribers in more than 150 countries eight times per annum, it has been but a passive dispenser of what it deems balanced, factual informationplus occasional commentary aimed at encouraging crop-based IPM development and ultimately appropriate adoption in the multiple and intertwined interests of humankind. In so doing over the years, it may have indirectly helped sway some minds. But it has neither had the mandate nor resources to engage in defined lobbying which the IPM Voice group appears to favor and which now may be a worthwhile endeavor to fertilize support for, and expand appreciation of, broad scale IPM adoption and its attendant benefits.

WEEDS ON SMALL FARMS Two Australian weed scientists have published a liberally illustrated, 32-page document aimed at owner/operators of smaller scale farms such as 'hobby' or 'lifestyle' farms which, despite representing far less land than commercial operations, still suffer in numerous ways from weeds' intrusion and impacts. WEED DETECTION AND CONTROL ON SMALL FARMS, A Guide for Owners, by B. Sindel and M. Coleman, focuses on the importance of detecting and controlling weeds before they spread, the importance of seeking professional advice, and, when necessary, collaborating with neighbors in conducting control operations. The 2010 booklet discusses the significance of weeds to small farms, describes basic concepts, and offers practical information for weed identification and control. Sources of weed information are listed, along with reference materials, such as websites, CDs, and other media. The publication can be freely accessed online at tinyurl.com -> B.

WHEAT DISEASE AND PESTS: AN EXPANDED EDITION

The American Phytopathological Society's well recognized disease (and pest) compendium series has established a new standard for size and breadth with recent publication of the COMPENDIUM OF WHEAT DISEASES AND PESTS, 3rd edition, the most expansive work to date in the 40-publication series. The 2010 edition incorporates 20 years of new information since the previous 1987 version, including: 32 new sections, plus revisions, and updating of the other material; 269 images, 90 percent of which are full color; and a major new section focused on 16 pest insect and mite species that are important to control for productive wheat crops. Editors, led by W.W. Bockus, organized the contributions of over 70 international experts in preparing the 181-page, softbound volume during a five-year period. The result, printed on high quality paperstock, is said to be the definitive single, science-based information resource for diseases (as well as pests) of Triticum spp., the world's most widely adapted crop plant. A companion single user image CD is also available as a package at a discounted price. {$} APS Press, 3340 Pilot Knob Rd., St. Paul, MN 55121, USA. Fax: 1-651-454-0766.

FORGET BIOCONTROL, THINK BIOTERROR

With its focus on intentional entomological attack, a new publication chronicles the numerous grisly inventive ways humans have recruited insects to wreak all manner of pain and destruction on enemies. Science and nature author J.A. Lockwood presents a horrific, yet grimly fascinating history in SIX-LEGGED SOLDIERS, Using Insects as Weapons of War, ranging from the use of projectile "bee-bombs" by early humans, to the very contemporary use of disease-bearing mosquitoes, as well as the thoroughly frightening prospect of how a determined foe might harness insects to mount an act of terrorism in the future. The softbound, 2010 volume describes annotated example after example of historic instances in war where insects played key roles, either directly against the combatants, the general public, or a vital food or water source. Insects, notes Dr. Lockwood, are "an ideal agent for waging covert biological warfare." An epilogue, extensive notes section, and numerous black and white images support the highly readable 398-page text. [$} -> Oxford Univ.

VI. U.S. AID's IPM-Collaborative Research Support Program (IPM-CRSP)

Managing a Key Fruit Crop Insect Pest

The lepidopteran arthropod Neoleucinodes elegantealis (tomato fruit borer) is a major pest of solanaceous crops in many regions of Latin America. In ECUADOR, the hard-to-control pest attacks the economically important crop Solanum quitoense (naranjilla), among others, an orange-like fruit locally grown primarily for juice production.

Research scientists at the Instituto Nacional Autonomo de Investigaciones Agropecuarias (INIAP) of Ecuador conducted studies in collaboration with IPM-CRSP advisors and published a 16-page, illustrated , full color bulletin describing their investigation and findings: "Comportamiento y alternativas de control del gusano del fruto de la naranjilla (Neoleuciondes elegantalis Guenee)," C. Asaquibay, et al, 2009, Boletin Divulgativo No. 347.

Several years of results indicated that treatments with the Abamectin, a delayed-action insecticide, at the rate of 1.5-1.0 cc/l, and Bacillus thuringiensis at 2.5 cc/l, were found to be the most effective control practices, while the former was also the most economic control compared to several other materials. -> INIAP, DNPV, EE Santa Catalina, Casilla 17-01-340, Quito, ECUADOR. dnpveesc@yahoo.es.
