MAKING 'AREAWIDE' TRULY COMPLETE The implications of an "areawide approach" to managing a specific pest species is clear: to be fully effective there can be few, if any, non-participating fields, orchards, or even residential yards within the targeted region. That requirement need not force the use of pesticides as there are a range of other actions that can be deployed. Western Australia's (WA) team approach toward controlling the Mediterranean fruit fly is a case in point.

The full participation concept is not a radically new thrust. The WA Plant Diseases Act of 1914 plainly states that it is the responsibility of all property owners to take steps to prevent the spread of pests and diseases. In fact, under this act an order for the remov- al of unmanaged trees (in this case) can be issued. No excuses for non-compliance, even a century ago in this region where pest management is taken very seriously.

WA Dept. of Agriculture and Food industry liaison specialist A. McCarthy empha- sizes the present community approach in the campaign to combat medfly, a pest known to infest more than 200 types of fruit and vegetables at an annual cost of millions of dollars to the province's horticulture industry.

Mr. McCarthy explains that commercial "Growers are working hard to protect crops but this work can be compromised if fruit fly in nearby areas is not managed effectively." As such, "It is up to everyone, not just commercial growers, but anyone with a fruit tree or a vegetable patch in their backyard, to control fruit fly," he noted.

Several recommended steps, among others, can be taken to help control fruit fly in non- commercial settings: fully dispose of any excess fruit; do not allow fruit to rot on the ground; remove any unwanted or unmanaged trees; once fruit has formed on trees, begin weekly foliar baiting, or install liquid traps or exclusion netting.

CERTIFIED ADVOCATES SUPPORT IPM AT RETAIL STORES

Ten individuals completed a year-long IPM Advocate training program in June 2012 and became certified and available to advise and assist retail stores (initially in California) with selecting and marketing less toxic products (pesticides) according to the December edition of Retail Nursery and Garden Center IPM News (vol. 2, no. 4, December 2012) tinyurl.com Since the 2011 launch of the IPM Advocate program, a co- operative effort between the Univ. of California Statewide IPM Program (UC IPM) and several other northern California groups, certified advocates have "trained 318 nursery and garden center managers, owners and employees in 30 stores and have helped more than 90 percent of these stores increase their displays of less toxic products," the article states. UC IPM will continue to support advocates with ongoing education and a collab- orative consultation network that links to expertise at UC. Advocates can also utilize UC research-based IPM educational materials, continuing training, an extensive website as well as other information. > A.

SUMMARIES OF NORDIC-BALTIC IPM MEETING

The Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists hosted an international seminar (NJF Seminar 458) in Tallinn, ESTONIA, during 07-08 November 2012, entitled Integrated Pest Management (IPM) - National Action Plans in Nordic-Baltic Countries, and have posted a 51-page collection of presentation summaries (in English) at tinyurl.com Topics covered a wide variety of IPM-related aspects ranging from overviews to more focused elements. FIRST OF WELL KNOWN BCPC REFERENCES GOES ONLINE

A well known and reliable reference source, The Pesticide Manual from BCPC (British Crop Production Council), is now available in an online form as a complement to the hard copy version. The online manual contains all the information in the hard copy plus a larger dataset of product names, said to be over 10,000, [but who's counting], as well as more than 3,000 discontinued product names, and 710 supplementary entries. The newly inaugurated online version aims to be user friendly and accessible. Additionally, it offers a unique search engine with regular updates "to keep pace with industry changes." The manual not only provides for multiple searches, it allows users to customize and export information. Then there are the hyperlinks to related data sources. BCPC notes that it intends to launch online versions of several other of its manuals including: biocontrol agents and the more recent GM crop reference.

= EQUIPMENT, PRODUCTS, PROCESSES, SERVICES = TWO APPS HELP GUIDE INSECTICIDE SPRAYING

Scientists (W.C. Hoffmann and B. Fritz) at the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture have devel- oped two mobile phone applications ("apps") to help with tuning and adjusting insecti- cide spraying equipment and application practices. The apps, usable with a smartphone, are designed to help ensure that both ground-based and aerial crews can accurately direct material to intended targets and minimize spray drift, all by keying in specifics on the type of equipment and pesticide being applied. The ground-based spraying app includes infor- mation for more that 50 sprayer models from 19 manufacturers. App users select the spray- ing device to be used, and are then guided through a process of selecting specific operational settings such as nozzle type, flow rate, and pressure setting. The app for aerial application guides users through the process of adjusting nozzles and settings to produce optimum size droplets, a critical element for on-target deposition and minimizing drift. Users specify a nozzle manufacturer from the app's menu and then draw information from a series of screens and prompts to select appropriate settings. The apps are available online by search- ing for "aerial sprays" or "vector sprays" through the Apple iTunes Store and the Google Play Android Marketplace. > W.C.

IPM IN PRACTICE, UPDATED

They wrote the book on IPM. Literally. Scientists in California concerned with crop protection in the 1950s conceived a new approach that evolved into IPM. Over years their pioneering work has been refined and reported and, based on accumulated information, published in 2001 by the statewide IPM project created at the Univ. of California. IPM in Practice: Principles and Methods of Integrated Pest Management, likely the most com- prehensive and practically applicable guide to IPM at the time. Now, a decade later, a recently published second edition offers new material on invasive pests, pesticide resis- tance, and volatile organic compounds, plus updated information on policies and reg- ulations, all in addition to the critical fundamentals of IPM. The newer version sports more than 160 full color photos (not found in the first edition) plus 100 hand-drawn illustrations, all bursting from the manual's 304 pages. Author and long-time IPM special- ist/entomologist M.L. Flint has drawn on the collective knowledge of dozens of experts for IPM in field, tree crops, and numerous other settings. The softbound volume includes IPM strategies for the majority of economically important pest species (omitting rogue elephants stomping through indigenous crop fields), as well as step-by-step information for establishing sampling and monitoring programs in the field. With its reader-friendly design printed on high-quality paperstock, the new publication is not only a unique infor- mation source, but also a huge bargain find among crop protection publications.

INVERTEBRATE PESTS IN AGRICULTURE

An April 2012 addition to the CSIRO list of publications is Controlling Invertebrate Pests in Agriculture, a discussion of pest management principles, especially as they relate to current and future directions. The 126-page monograph describes the concept of agri- cultural ecosystems, the role of both pesticides and the scope of cultural control options in light of current practices. Authors J. Page and P. Horne, both associated with IPM Technologies Pty. Ltd., not unexpectedly focus on the role of IPM approaches and ex- plain why the most ecologically sound methods are not always adopted, as well as how they can be deployed with success. A separate chapter of the softbound work covers bio- logical control and the ways it may be implemented. Examples of applying IPM, and the outcomes, are highlighted. The overall thrust is to set out the requirements to achieve successful invertebrate pest management in a sustainable manner. {$} >CSIRO Publishing, PO Box 1139, Collingwood, VIC 3066, AUSTRALIA.

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

MANAGING A MANGO MENACE

The tropical fruit Mangifera spp. (mango) crop ranks as an economically important crop in SENEGAL. Growing and harvesting mangoes accounts for more than 60 percent of the nation's fruit crop and is a primary source of livelihood for approximately 24,000 individuals who work in the industry. With arrival of Ceratitis cosyra (mango fruitfly), a devastating mango pest, production decreased creating a serious economic impact. A joint U.S.-Senegalese team of research scientists organized by the IPM CRSP investigated the situation and subsequently produced a 13-minute video SOS MANGUES (in French) that explores the problem, noting how the mango fruitfly attacks the crop, and describing the IPM program proposed by the team to combat the pest tinyurl.com excerpted, with thanks, from the indicated website and other sources.
