I. IPM News

    After a brief hiatus, weed research in AUSTRALIA is once again thriving with an infusion of new funding and a realignment of organizations following closure of the Cooperative Research Centre for Australian Weed Management several years ago.

    The revamped weed research effort falls within the National Weeds and Productivity Research Program now managed by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) which operates under the flag of “new ideas for rural Australia,” within the national Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF).

    In May 2011, M. Kelly the Australian parliamentary secretary for DAFF, announced A$6.1 million in funding to support 33 weed-related research pro ects “bringing innovative approaches to tackling some of Australia’s most invasive pest plants,” according to an RIRDC news release. The projects are designed to help staunch the more than A$4 billion annual cost to farmers in lost production and control measures, Dr. Kelly noted.

    An addition to the original research funding channeled through RIRDC boosted the total to around A$12.4 and swelled the number of research pro jects to more than 50. Weed research meshes with RIRDC's remit "to work with industry to invest in research and development for a more profitable, sustainable and dynamic rural sector," an objective of the Australian govern-

    The newly funded projects are relatively short term (one year) with extensions, and range across a variety of investigations focused on weed suppress ion and invasive plant containment and control. A full listing on the RIRDC website presents a summary, objective, goal, and contact for each current project http://tinyurl.com/3j7xa37.

    The Corporation has established a nine-person National Weeds and Productivity Research Program Committee to provide oversight. New subscribers to a free electronic newsletter published by RIRDC, Weeds E-News, are welcomed, and titles in a series of liberally illustrated publications can be freely downloaded or ordered in hard copy form at the RIRCD website.  -> RIRDC, Level 2, 15 National Circuit, Barton, ACT 2604, AUSTRALIA.

    Amidst the swirl of impassioned debate over the pros and cons of pesticides, and nagging concern over information from sources with potential vested interests, there stands a readily available source of fully objective, science-based factual information focused on pesticide chemistry, toxicology, and environmental fate: the U.S. National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC).

    The Center offers a free pesticide-related information service to all who inquire be they growers, general public, government, medical organizations, or industry, via email and the internet as well as by a toll-free telephone service for inquiries from the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, 24 hours a day and with service available in over 170 languages at 1-800-858-7378.

    NPIC, a cooperative agreement between Oregon State Univ. and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has been operating since 1995. The Center has steadily expanded its information bank and recently revamped its website, http://npic.orst.edu, designed to answer common questions about pesticides, and has infused IPM concepts throughout the site, which now includes over 300 pages of content, according to an NPIC spokesperson.

    The revamped site includes information aimed at helping to:
* Reduce risk by promoting safe use of pesticides as well as low-risk pesticides;
* encourage IPM at home, in the garden, and for turf areas;
* Protect wildlife, air, soil, and water from pesticide exposure.

    The NPIC website heading "pesticide ingredients" offers data under the sub-categories of: active ingredients; other/inert ingredients; pesticide products; low-risk pesticides; and organic pesticide ingredients. The page lists 19 pesticide types ranging from insecticides to defoliants and includes mothballs. The information notes that a pesticide is "any substance or mixture of
substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest" organism. The term "pesticide" applies to herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and various other substances used to manage or control pests. [Ergo, it is inaccurate to refer to "pests and diseases;" diseases and weeds are indeed pests just as are certain insects. Ed.]

    In its quest for facts, not opinion, NPIC seeks accurate and complete information that it can computerize and add to its trove of data. Informational publications and web pages from NPIC often list additional resources, and in many cases contain direct web links so that viewers can use to easily click through to initiate direct contact with those sources. NPIC's site and information pool is continually revised and updated as warranted.

    For inquiries about products, it is suggested that having the full product name, and registration number (if known) at hand facilitates a timely response especially in cases of diagnostic crisis management incidents with humans or animals.  -> NPIC, Dept. of EMT, Oregon State Univ., Corvallis, OR 97331, USA. npic@ace.orst.edu.

    UK-based CABI recently announced a new website, Invasive Species Compendium (ISC), in a beta test version. The ambitious undertaking contains "around 1,500 species and is growing by the day," according to an overview. The publisher notes that the site "is designed to help a wide variety of users" through provision of information. An explanatory leaflet ex-
plains that the ISC offers "detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide," http://tinyurl.com/64tnvum. Not only does the ISC list plants, it also includes viruses, fungi, bacteria, animals and more. Surprisingly, the Compendium (at www.cabi.org/isc), at least currently, does not use the well established world standard of itali-
cizing scientific names of listed organisms, a clear deviation that doubtlessly will be remedied in a fully operational version.

Handheld Wind Speed Metering Devices

    A key factor for avoiding (or minimizing) wind-caused spray drift is knowledge of wind velocity and the limits it imposes on application. The combination of spray droplet size, wind speed, and other elements determines if application should be performed or delayed. A handy tool for providing a wind speed reading is a handheld wind speed metering device. There are
numerous units available and what follows is but a sampling of the market.

    A simple, inexpensive pocket size meter is the direct reading Handheld Portable Wind Meter with dual scales for high and low miles/hour offered by Dwyer Instruments ttp://tinyurl.com/6xy76g5. The meter is held at eye level, back of the meter towards the oncoming wind, to make a reading. The meter comes with a case. -> Dwyer Instruments, PO Box 373, Michigan City, IN 46360, USA.  tech@dwyer-inst.com.  Fax: 1-219-872-9057. Voice: 1-219-879-8000.

    The majority of small wind meters are similar appearing with an opening for the wind to enter and turn a turbine fan, and an information display window powered by a "button" style lithium battery. One of the most straightforward of this type of unit is the Ambient Weather HP816A which provides both wind speed and air temperature measurements http://tinyurl.com/6d3mx5o. The backlit display can be turned on and off. A sapphire bearing for the revolving wind vane is said to insure accurate readings from 0.2 miles/hour. The user
can select km/hour, meters/second, or knots, and choose between centigrade or Fahrenheit scales. Other models are also available.  -> Ambient Weather, 6845 W. Frye Rd., Chandler, AZ 85226, USA.  support@ambientweather.com. Fax: 1-480-346-3381.  Voice: 1-480-346-3380.

    WeatherHawk markets a range of battery-powered, handheld meters under the WindMate, Skymate, and Skymaster brands that range from a basic wind speed and temperature model--WindMate WM-100 with jack-knife case for greater accuracy, readings in either English or metric units, that is also water resistant, buoyant, and shockproof ttp://tinyurl.com/69emmxw--to a hand-held comprehensive multi-function weather meter. -> WeatherHawk,

Voice: 1-435-227-9802.

     A heavier duty model from Omega, the HHF82, has a low friction ball bearing mounted impeller for increased accuracy of wind speed measurements, in any of five various measures, operates from a 9-volt battery and weighs 160 gm (0.4 lb) http://tinyurl.com/6anb49a. It includes a low battery charge indicator and is said to be accurate over a wide range of temperatures.  -> Omega, PO Box 4047, Stamford, CT 06907-0047, USA.

    A Swiss firm produces Speedwatch brand wind speed meters in Xplorer, Eole, Atmos,and Geos model lines. The Atmos features an extra large LCD viewing screen as well as a vertical axis, horizontally rotating omni-directional impeller that allows readings to be taken without having to note wind direction. Measurement range is 4.0-225 km/h (0.7-145 mi/h). The 115 gram unit also provides temperature and humidity readings. Its shock-resistant body has a
threaded insert to accommodate a tripod. The Atmos uses a lithium "button" battery and has an auto switch-off feature.  (In the U.S., see: www.ntechusa.com, info@ntechusa.com.)  -> JDC Electronic SA, Rue des Uttins 40, 1400 Yverdon-

    A recent monograph explores one alternative to "synthetic" products used in the process of protecting crops, especially food crops, from the horde of pests (used here to mean pest insects, pest plants, pest pathogens, and pest vertebrates) bent on destroying growing crop plants. In Natural Products in Plant Pest Management, editor N.K. Dubey, and a contingent of 25 international contributors discusses various products that may serve as repellents, anti-feedants, and anti-ovipositants, among other responses, to discourage or
fend off pest organisms. Searching for effective natural products spans chemistry, biology, and other disciplines, and is founded in part on the perception that a lack of knowledge about the multitude of biodiversity remains to be rectified through discovery. Several references scattered throughout the volume's 312 pages mention the role of natural products enhancing other materials in an IPM context. A contributing author, in concluding the hardbound, 2011 work, notes that, in spite of the spate of developments, the number of successful bioproducts in current markets is not encouraging suggesting a need for ratcheting up research of new sources as well as optimizing performance of existing products.  {$}  -> CABI, Nosworthy Way, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 8DE, UK. cabi@cabi.org.

Working with colleagues in ETHIOPIA, W. Mersie of Virginia State Univ. has introduced Zygogramma bicolorata Pallister (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). Preliminary tests conducted under quarantine in Ethiopia showed that this biocontrol agent did
not harm non-target hosts, but was effective in defoliating and eventually killing Parthenium. Based on these favorable results, local authorities support field release.  --> W. Mersie, WMersie@vsu.edu.    --excerpted, with thanks, from  IPM-CRSP materials.
