GROUP WILL PURSUE IPM APPROACHES ACROSS EUROPE The European Commission has contracted with a recently organized entity to provide "practical IPM solutions that reduce dependence on pesticides in selected major farming systems in Europe." The intent is to help reduce perceived risks to human health and the environment, according to PURE (Pesticide Use-and-risk Reduction in European farm- ing systems, based on IPM) the contracting group.

PURE plans to provide IPM solutions and a practical toolbox for implementation in key European farming systems. In each case existing methods will be combined with new technologies to create novel approaches, all of which will address European biological, agronomic, and economic diversity, notes the PURE website tinyurl.com The project's efforts will target vegetable crops (both field and protected), maize, winter wheat-based rotations, vine grapes, and pome fruit cropping systems. PURE will assess IPM thrusts for efficacy, practicality, and relevance in these broad crop categories using both field and experiment station trials. The cropping systems were selected as represent- ing 66 percent of the continent's crop production area as well as having potential for pesticide reduction and improved management of pest species.

The PURE project involves a wide range of participants including university and institute researchers, industry representatives, advisory groups, management organizations, and other stakeholders from 10 European countries. The project is funded at Euro12 million over four years. PURE is coordinated by F. Lescourret at INRA (Institut Nationnal de la Recherche Agronomique) FRANCE, and managed by B. Giovani at INRA Transfert, an INRA affiliate.

PURE is a follow-on activity that plans to expand and apply information developed by ENDURE, a predecessor European program focused on IPM that set the stage for the current EC-funded program. PURE intends to convene its first congress, with the theme of dissemination, during March 2013, at Riva del Garda, ITALY. An annual newsletter will be published each February from 2012 through 2015. A series of booklets will be produced with the first set to be available in February 2013. Other field-based information activities are envisioned.

PROJECT AIMS TO UPGRADE GREENHOUSE PEST MANAGEMENT A consortium of Dutch and German research and private sector organizations is sponsoring a four-year project to boost development of a sustainable pest (insect and disease) management system in modern greenhouse horticulture, centered in the border region between GERMANY and the NETHERLANDS.

German and Dutch governments, jointly with industry, are making available over Euro 10 million, with Wageningen UR (university and research center) as lead partner with responsibility for program coordination of the "Healthy Greenhouse Project," under the direction of C. Zijlstra, of the institution's Plant Research International group.

Various approaches for timely pest organism detection and efficient management are envisioned to be combined in the new system. The Healthy Greenhouse effort should generate a crop protection scheme that enables growers to better control the range of pest insects and diseases in modern greenhouses while deploying lesser amounts of pesticide. Interreg, an EU program designed to encourage European regions to work together on common projects and a collaborating sponsor, has identified greenhouse horticulture in the border region as a significant activity with potential for collaboration as well as improved IPM practices.

Dr. Zijlstra commented that "modern greenhouses are large and detection and control of pests and diseases is becoming increasingly difficult. There are all sorts of sensors on the market but growers can do nothing with separate instruments. An observation also needs proper interpretation and this, in turn, must be followed by the right decision and efficient control measures. The project will, therefore, be focusing on combining and matching technologies."

Plans call for setting up a demonstration greenhouse in the region; that same system will then be displayed in operation at IPM 2015 in Essen, GERMANY. -> C.

IPM AND "FEED THE FUTURE" IPM was the focus of a workshop convened in Honolulu, HI, USA, under the U.S. government's "Feed the Future" commitment to work towards sustainably reducing hunger and global poverty. The event, "IPM for Feed the Future" workshop held in conjunction with a major conference during August 2011, invited presentations by a wide swath of agencies and organizations involved with crop protection efforts.

Several recommendations were formulated based on the presentations and other materials generated by the event. The following distills some of the major points formulated, and subsequently set forth on the website tinyurl.com IPM technologies need to be developed and implemented, as an integral element of the Feed the Future initiative, to reduce the approximately 40 percent global pest- caused crop losses.

*) Global IPM programs should be more effectively coordinated between all the involved sponsors, as well as between various programs and participants. *) The initial focus should be IPM for food crops, especially where there has been an existent void.

*) Workshop participants endorsed more emphasis on training in the crop protection disciplines and beyond.

*) Policy-makers are a key to broader support and implementation and as such warrant more education on the importance of sustainable crop protection.

*) The onus of climate change needs to be continually kept in mind and its potential impacts factored into the realm of effectively deploying IPM. excerpted, with thanks, from a workshop document.

NEWER MANUAL: BOTH BROAD AND SPECIFIC IPM INSIGHTS

Every apple or pear grower, whether in AUSTRALIA or otherwise, is likely to find information of value in a 2009 manual published by the state of New South Wales in conjunction with Apple and Pear Australia, Ltd. The self explanatory title, Integrated Pest Management for Australian Apples and Pears, masks the fact that this thorough, graphically pleasing volume also offers broadly applicable IPM information in addition to an array of full color close-up photos and straight-forward text. The manual outlines an apple and pear IPM strategy for Australia, but the advice given can easily be transposed and remain largely relevant in many other lands. IPM is amply discussed in the 215-page book; a key section discusses "Making the Decision to Use IPM: Personal Choices;" an- other section defines terms tossed around in the IPM milieu. Once beyond the introductory material, the publication describes "Six steps to controlling diseases of apples and pears," and devotes a section to mating disruption. The main body of information is formed by 28 illustrated 'fact sheets' for specific pest (including pathogens) identification, damage inflicted, prevention, and management. A section of the 200+ page work presents infor- mation for reducing the impact of birds. The information-rich manual was prepared by S. Hetherington and edited by A. Munroe; Dr. Hetherington is industry leader for tem- perate fruit in NSW. Four years earlier the same team compiled IPM for Australian Summer Fruit (in collaboration with SummerFruit Australia). The apple/pear manual can be freely downloaded (big file, takes a bit of time) at tinyurl.com (that's an "ell" not a "one"). Hard copies may be available from Industry & Investment NSW. excerpted, with thanks, from the indicated website.

FIELD CROP GUIDE PUBLISHED

The Canadian Province of Manitoba has published a Guide to Field Crop Protection 2011, providing a broad range of information including useful product tables and an extensive listing of protective gear and clothing with advice on usage thereof. Also in- cluded are ൒ Rules for Safe Application." In the introductory section the Guide offers an illustrated section on identification of crop and weed leaf stages. Separate sections address control of weeds, plant diseases, and insects. There is no specific IPM information, but for pesticide use the 474-page publication, published by Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives (MAFRI) and Saskatchewan Agriculture offers relevant information. The Guide can be downloaded from www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture/crops/cropproduction/gaa01d01.html or ordered as a hard- copy {$} from: MAFRI, Crops Knowledge Centre, Box 1149, Carman, MB R0G 0J0, CANADA.

PLANTS RESISTING GLYPHOSATE

Glyphosate, the once highly acclaimed herbicide, has had its luster somewhat dulled by evolution of weeds that resist and increasingly shrug off its chemistry. A recent publication, Glyphosate Resistance in Crops and Weeds, focuses on the heavily studied issue of glyphosate resistance and its critical importance to transgenic glyphosate-resistant crops. Editor V.K. Nandula has drawn together a phalanx of experts in this 2010 hardbound monograph. With a subtitle of "History, Development, and Management," the publication chronicles the emergence of glyphosate resistance and procedures for detecting its presence; the text is said to help standardize global approaches to the topic. Sixteen chapters range widely from basic definitions and concepts to the genomics of glyphosate resistance. The 339-page work concludes with a review of the economic impacts of glyphosate-resistant weeds. {$} -> Wiley- Blackwell, 111 River St., Hoboken, NJ 07030-5774, USA.

INVASIVES AND GIS

The latest 2011 addition to the series GIS Applications in Agriculture is volume three, Invasive Species, representing the input of over 50 contributing authors discussing the use of GIS (geographic information systems) to track, capture, store, analyze, manage and present data on plant and animal alien species. The 448-page publication, edited by S.A. Clay, examines five information categories using GIS: dispersal and transport; prediction and forecasting; infestation mapping; management and control tactic maps; and impact assessment and control methods. Each of the 17 chapters opens with an executive summary. Most chapters provide step-by-step tutorials or case studies that allow manipulation of data sets found on the bound-in CD-ROM, so users can con- struct maps, perform statistical analyses, and predict future problems. The overall thrust emphasizes pest organisms occurring in production agriculture. The hardbound work contains numerous black/white illustrations, plus additional full color illustrations are in the included CD-ROM. {$} -> CRC Press, 6000 Broken Sound Parkway NW, Suite 300, Boca Raton, FL 33487, USA.

= SPECIAL ISSUES =

The June 2011 edition of Phytopathology (vol. 101, no. 6, pgs 640-665) presents a symposium concerning “Perceptions of [crop disease] Risk, Risk Aversion, and Barriers to Adoption of Decision Support Systems and IPM,” leading to more effective and efficient disease management.

A highly destructive insect, Drosophila suzukii (spotted wing drosophila), is highlighted in a special “In Focus” section of the November 2011 edition of Pest Management Science, 67(11). The collection of eight papers provides an overview of the insect’s biology, economic impact, and management. Steps are listed for educating stakeholders as to how to respond to this devastating insect as it invades new regions of the world.

= FEATURED ARTICLE =

Results of a 4-year study conclusively demonstrated that an areawide approach to mating disruption improved the benefits of deploying pheromones in individual apple 'blocks' to manage Cydia pomonella (codling moth). Writing in American Entomologist, 57(2), 2011, P.S. McGhee, et al, calculated that growers in the areawide study gained economic benefits of US$ 55-65 per ha through reduced fruit injury and decreased expenditure for pesticides compared to growers in the same region following an insecticide only regime. In their paper, "Quantifying the Benefits of Areawide Pheromone Mating Disruption Programs that Target Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)," McGhee and colleagues describe the application of the well tried areawide concept on smaller farms (less than 40 ha) in the area (in the U.S. state of Michigan) and found a high degree of cross farm collaboration. Currently mating disruption is deployed on more than 25 percent of apple plantings in Michigan and has significantly increased since inception of the study. -> P.S. McGhee, Ent.
