I. News About IPM


The areawide effect is alive and thriving as clearly demonstrated by a massive multi-state (U.S.) study confirming that maize genetically engineered to control a serious pest insect not only was both agronomically and economically effective in its own right, it generated significant benefits for neighboring growers of conventional maize as well.

Since 1996 maize modified with a toxin from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been increasingly adopted in the U.S. mid-western "corn belt" to suppress Ostrinia nubilalis (European corn borer) attacks with a resulting decrease in annual losses estimated at US billion. Not all growers utilize the technology and continue to plant traditional maize varieties. In fact, the National Corn Growers Association (U.S.) strongly advises all growers to plant at least some non-Bt maize in refuges to avoid corn borers from developing resistance to Bt and blunting the technology.

Since the moth stage of O. nubilalis is unable to distinguish between Bt and non-Bt maize, females lay eggs in both crops. Young borer larvae feeding on Bt maize die within 48 hours thereby decreasing populations across all of the 63 percent of field areas planted with the modified crop. Specialists and re- searchers have theorized that the areawide effect is at play, but until the recent study applied economic parameters based on historic records to assess the actual impact, there had never been a comprehensive analysis.

Presenting their study results in a recent issue of Science, a team of agrono- mists, entomologists, extensionists and economists led by W.D. Hutchison extended cost-benefit analyses beyond solely transgenic maize and came up with breath-taking results. In their paper, "Areawide Suppression of European Corn Borer with Bt Maize Reaps Savings to Non-Bt Maize Growers," they estimated cumulative benefits over 14 years (for a multi-state area) at US.2 billion for all maize growers with the surprising conclusion that US.9 billion was attributed to reduced corn borer losses for non-Bt maize growers. Adding results from two additional states, Iowa and Nebraska, increased cumulative benefits to nearly US billion for all growers and more than US billion for non-Bt maize growers alone.

Dr. Hutchison stressed that, "This study is the culmination of many entomol- ogists, extension specialists and [U.S.Dept. of Agric.-Agric. Resch. Service] collaborators, who consistently collected these long-term (50+ year) data sets, especially in Minnesota, Illinois, and Wisconsin, that provided the impetus for the the study, and actually gave us the confidence that what we are seeing now, in the Bt corn era, is real. We had an excellent benchmark to compare the current suppression level to."

Results of the extensive study are said to "reaffirm theoretical predictions of pest population suppression." Secondly, the outcome importantly highlights "economic incentives for growers to maintain non-Bt maize refugia for sustain- able insect resistance management."

The forthcoming ENDURE Second International Conference, Integrated Pest Management in Europe, is organized to "share the fruits of four years' re- search with the crop protection community," and provide important information for policy-makers from European Community members. The event is slated for 24-25 November 2010 at the Eurosites George V conference facility in Paris, FRANCE.

ENDURE, the European Network for the Durable Exploitation of Crop Pro- tection Strategies, specifically emphasizes IPM and has, in a relatively short time period, generated a mass of relevant literature (e.g., see "Euro Network ....." in next section), presented numerous training events, and in other ways helped accelerate IPM adoption within the European Community. The conference aims to look both backward at accomplishments as well as divine future needs and thrusts.

The event is structured under five themes: 1) Case StudiesDeveloping IPM Strategies for Improving Sustainability and Reducing Pesticide Dependency; 2) ExtensionInterfacing with European Farm Advisors and IPM Trainers; 3) ENDURE Beyond 2010; 4) ResearchPriorities and Prospects in IPM Research and Technology; and, 5) IPM ImplementationIngredients for Success in Europe.

The unusual step of waiving all conference fees was undertaken to attract a large and diverse group of attendees to maximize exposure for critically im- portant IPM concepts. The organizers have made registration compulsory, however. The conference website is colloque.inra.fr For more information about ENDURE and its programs and outputs, and to subscribe to the ENDURE Newsletter, see: www.endure-network.eu. excerpted, with thanks, from various ENDURE materials.

EURO NETWORK PRODUCES IPM GUIDES AND MORE ENDURE, the European Network for the Durable Exploitation of Crop Protec- tion Strategies, focuses its energies on IPM and has published a raft of informative, eminently readable materials, and generously made them freely available on the web. The newest additions to the expanding ENDURE literature are five guides (leaflets) addressing innovative IPM for maize grown in various key areas of Europe. Advanced methods and tools are described including modern cultivars, forecasting models, early detection methods, and crop rotations, as well as community-based decisions developed via information sharing. Three of the titles were published respectively in Spanish, Italian, and Hungarian. Another series of guidelines comprise an in-depth review of IPM for field vegetables, covering biocontrol, biofumigation, pest management directed toward field margins, and soil steaming (with a photo of a mobile device designed specifically for steaming soil). Earlier titles include case studies. Also available are related articles that have appeared in the ENDURE News. -> www.endure-network.eu.

A U.S. federally sponsored weed information publication, Federal Noxious Weed Disseminules of the U.S., by J. Scher and D. Walters, was recently re- vamped to raise its user-friendliness quotient. The interactive tool offers "photos, text, and keys that aid in determining whether or not an unknown disseminule, (e.g., seed, fruit) found as a contaminant in imported botanicals and agricultural products is a federal noxious weed and is therefore actionable," according to the site tinyurl.com "A disseminule," the text notes, "is a plant part that can be carried away or dispersed from the mother plant and become a new plant somewhere else." The unique tool's latest version, FNWE2 developed using Lucid 3.4, includes a redesigned, more intuitive home page, improved internal page design with improved navigation, an easier to use glossary, and other useful enhancements. The presented information represents research conducted and com- piled by the Center for Plant Health Science and Technology, a scientific support group for the Plant Protection and Quarantine program within the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, a major wing of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (breathe). -> T.W.

Beyond bees buzzing and birds chirping in orchards, there's a new sound: "splat," as in the gentle collision between Specialized Pheromone & Lure Technology and the surface it was aimed at to deliver a dollop of amorphous, flowable, rain-fast material containing a pre-determined amount of semiochemical. SPLAT(tm) is an additional weapon in the arsenal successfully deployed for mating disruption, or attract-and-kill programs. Not to be confused with 'students pushing the limits of advanced trends,' this patented system is based on a benign, biologically inert, bio-degradable matrix that can carry and release a variety of semiochemicals and odors, with or without pesticides; it is said to be capable of emitting varying rates over a period of 2 to 32 weeks. The amount and rate of pheromone or other material released from SPLAT dollops can be adjusted to suit specific needs. The dollops themselves can be applied by various means: hand-held device (metered or manually controlled), backpack sprayer, tractor mounted equipment, or via aircraft. The manufacturer points out that SPLAT can be used in either small- or large-scale operations. > ISCA Technologies, PO Box 5266, Riverside, CA 92517, USA.

Label Length, Lingo, and Logos

For pesticides, labels matter: information printed on a label needs to be accurate, clear, truthful, and complete, that is no fables in the labels. To this end, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has launched "enable the label," an effort aimed at improving the clarity and usefulness of EPA's Label Review Manual. A discussion forum at blog.epa.gov has been established to "facilitate the exchange of information and ideas related to the labeling" of pesticides [packages/containers ed.] with an invitation to participate for anyone interested in so doing . The plan is to focus monthly on a predetermined chapter or two of the Manual. EPA personnel will post questions or issues, and has extended an invitation for discussion and comments. Topics such as mandatory versus advisory statements, types of pesticide labeling, and label format are under review during October 2010. > M-J. Lormand, Lormand.Mary-Jane@epamail.epa.gov.

By strictly economic criteria, Citrus tristeza virus is frequently viewed as one of the most important known viruses, as well as being the largest and most complex virus among all known viruses. Factor in the high value and globally wide cultivation of the citrus crops it attacks plus the severe damage inflicted by the virus and the interest and urgency of finding answers becomes clear. To that end, A.V. Karasev and M.E. Hilf have edited a 2010 volume, Citrus tristeza virus Complex and Tristeza Diseases, as an effort to present a comprehensive view of research findings and management approaches to date. In five sections and 15 chapters, with input from a broad international cross-section of scientists, the 266-page softbound work offers a diversity of outlooks, investigations, dead- end research efforts, and enlightening discoveries along the way. The final section, "Management of CTVA Worldwide Experience," captures the element of a global concern and the challenge it embodies for plant pathologists as well as the affected industry. A dozen color an 40 black/white images are included. {$} > APS Press, 3340 Pilot Knob Rd., St. Paul, MN 55121, USA. Fax: 1-651-454-0766. Voice: 1-651-454-7250. APS@scisoc.org. www.apsnet.org.

VI. U.S. AID's IPM-Collaborative Research Support Program (IPM-CRSP) - An Effective Biofungicide for Vegetables - A Pest and its Predators in Asia

Getting Tricky with Trichoderma

The ability of certain strains of Trichoderma spp., a friendly fungus found in nearly all soils, to colonize roots, and attack, parasitize and otherwise gain nutrition from other fungi has not been lost on scientists involved with IPM-CRSP projects, particularly in Asia. "We are using Trichoderma in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines to great effect," said IPM-CRSP project director R. Muniappan. In Bangladesh and Indonesia, Trichoderma spp. is mixed with compost and applied in the field. In India it is used as a seed treatment for vegetable crops. It is sprayed on seedlings in the Philippines, and used in the region for control of soil-borne diseases of vegetable crops as well as oil palm, citrus, vanilla, and other crops. In Kenya, IPM-CRSP personnel are testing Trichoderma spp. on passion fruit diseases. In the Americas, the fungus is undergoing trials for controlling fusarium wilt of watermelon. Since Trichoderma spp. occurs naturally in many soils it is relatively easy to find and to cultivate. Once grown, producers can package or mix it with compost and sell the product. It also can be produced in liquid form. And because of its characteristics, it can be deployed against almost every pathogenic fungus that growers want to control, noted Dr. Muniappan. > IPM-CRSP, 526 Prices Fork Rd.

Univ. of Arizona plant pathologist J.K. Brown has prepared a new PowerPoint presentation, "Candidatus Liberibacter: A New Type of Bacteria Associated with Psyllids and Plants," relating to 'zebra chip' disease of Solanum tuberosum (potato) as well as other crops. Zebra chip disease is characterized by necrotic black stripes in potatoes when fried. Foliar symptoms include chlorosis, necrosis, and death. Plant stunting, aerial tubers, and vascular browning may be noted. While not certain, psyllid involvement in vectoring the disease is, as Dr. Brown notes, "robust." The visual presentation concludes with a list of suggested management practices. > J.K. Brown, School of Plant Sci., Forbes 431, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA. JBrown@ag.arizona.edu.
