April 2009, Issue no. 170 ISSN: 1523-7893 © Copyright 2005 I. IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs Research Program Will Help Subsistence Farmers The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Seattle, Washington-based Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), have joined forces to fund and significantly boost research to enhance global small farm/subsistence agriculture in developing countries, according to an NSF news release www.nsf.gov. Each organization will provide US million over five years (US million total) to support a competitive grants program that will seek answers to pest (insects, weeds, diseases), drought, and related challenges facing small-scale growers and their families who rely on crops for both income and subsistence. NSF will manage the program, dubbed 'Basic Research to Enable Agricultural Development' (aka “BREAD”), drawing upon a peer review process in consultation with BMGF staff. NSF funds will support research conducted by eligible U.S. academic institutions including non-profit research groups, museums, labs, and professional societies. BMGF funding will support eligible international partners as identified through sub-awards from U.S. awardees. D. Delmer, newly appointed BREAD program director, views the program as a “unique opportunity to promote international collaborations among scientists from the U.S. and those in developed and developing world countries.” The BREAD concept is to expand on previous research efforts to evolve transformative research that will generate sustainable, science-based solutions to smaller-scale agricultural endeavors in targeted areas. -> D. Delmer, NSF, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22230, USA. bread-wg@nsf.gov. Voice: 1-703-292-8470. excerpted, with thanks, from the NSF website. Commentary A decades-long body of research directly aimed at improving the lot of small-scale growers and their families in developing countries will doubtlessly be accelerated and strengthened by the new program (BREAD) mentioned above. But a caveat is worth noting: new research efforts need to avoid reinventing the vast body of work carried out and duly reported by many earlier programs dating back to the mid-1960's and earlier.


The U.S. Agency for International Development has sponsored long-running programs for IPM, and improved management of weeds, among others, and still is at the forefront of funding science-based, in-field, hands-on research activities such as the Collaborative Research Support Programs (See, for example: “A Flexible Package of Practices” in Section VII). The United Nations’ many programs, plus international activities funded through European Community nations, and the evolution of Farmer Field Schools are all important earlier steps in the same direction. Of course, the elapsed decades have witnessed giant leaps forward in technology that now can be utilized to address crop production. But many of the intractable situations that have historically impinged on small-scale, developing countries cropping still exist: infertile soils, inflexible social mores, unpredictable markets, inadequate transportation, and inhospitable political structures have not disappeared. Many pioneering programs have. However, the research and extension they conducted–-the advances, minute as they may be, as well as the failures–-are documented in numerous (no doubt dusty) reports that still exist and are clearly worth reviewing before starting all over from scratch and wasting precious time and money.

POSTERS OF VEGETABLE VILLAINS A European-based biocontrols producer/marketer has published two newer multi- lingual posters illustrating pathogens/diseases and pests (insects) of two vegetable crops. One of the 70x100 cm (27.5 x 39in.), full color posters targets Cucumis sativus (cucumber) and illustrates different stages of leaf, stem, and fruit damage. Attacking organisms are identified by scientific nomenclature as well as common names in nine languages. The second poster provides similar information for cultivar groups within the Capsicum annum species (or broadly, sweet peppers [in English]). The posters are intended to serve as visual aids for helping to identify causes of crop abnormalities. Posters are said to be freely available from distributors. -> R.

PROFILE OF THE AREAWIDE APPROACH Two recently published titles coincidently address the topic of applying a pest management plan to broad geographic areas as compared to an individual field or other small land unit, or to an entire pest population over a broad swath of real estate. The most recent of these volumes, AREAWIDE PEST MANAGEMENT, Theory and Implementation, similarly to the slightly earlier publication*, presents a series of 21 papers by a corps of experts, as edited by O. Koul , et al. The editors tasked the 2008, 604-page monograph with three purposes: to provide a condensed history of areawide pest management's (AWPM) underpinnings and a summary of current field activity; to discuss the concepts that have direct impact on the success/less-thansuccess of AWPM implementation; and, to compile recent case examples of programs that have utilized the AWPM approach and to what effect. Chapters predominantly focus on managing and containing pest insects, but also give a nod to weed-centered areawide efforts as well as social and economic aspects of AWPM. Maintaining a well established tradition, the hardbound work


concludes with a chapter that examines the current approaches, obstacles, and potential future directions of AWPM. {$} -> CAB International, Nosworthy Way, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 8DE, UK.

A PATH TO IPM IMPLEMENTATION Two experienced IPM specialists in Australia have published a straight forward, grower oriented manual, INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FOR CROPS AND PASTURES, that lays out elements and procedures for successfully implementing IPM in cropping and grazing operations. P.A. Horne and J. Page introduce the IPM approach, the key management methods (primarily for non-weed and non-vertebrate pest species), and then address the all-important aspect of monitoring. “One of the most important points to remember,” the authors advise, “is that the presence of a pest does not necessarily mean there is a pest problem.” The 134-page, 2008 book leads growers through making the initial determination to launch an IPM program, as well as the ongoing decision-making involved with field monitoring and related steps. Several examples of monitoring in specific cropping situations follow in this practical 2008 work, which includes 47 full color photos. The softbound publication concludes by presenting case studies and examples of grower experiences with adopting IPM. -> Landlinks Press, PO Box 1139, Collingwood, VIC 3066, AUSTRALIA.

EQUIPMENT, PRODUCTS, PROCESSES, & SERVICES MULTI-PURPOSE SOFTWARE AVAILABLE The American Phytopathological Society (APS) has published ASSESS 2.0,Image Analysis Software for Plant Disease Quantification, comprised of a CD and a textbook quality manual containing 19 tutorials. According to APS, ASSESS software quantifies and measures plant diseases quickly and accurately and provides rapid measurement of leaf area, percent disease, root length, lesion count, and percent ground cover, all at a fraction of the cost of general image analysis software. Multi purpose ASSESS 2.0, (2008), by L. Lamari, also can be used as an interactive laboratory tool for real-time length and area measurements of anything that can be imaged (scanned, digitally photographed, microcopied, etc.) and is hardwareindependent, requiring only a computer with a 32-bit computer operating system. The program supports Twain-compliant imaging devices, such as scanners, frame grabbers, or digital cameras, for image acquisition, although images can be imported from any computer drive, CD, network, or other applications. The software/manual package is seen as a useful tool for anyone needing to analyze, quantify, and measure plants and plant diseases. Automated installation is said to be straight forward, and both single and multiple user versions are offered.

Online IPM Course Targets Retail Personnel The California Statewide IPM program conducted by the Univ. of California/Davis recently added another title to its free series of online pesticide training courses: "Moving Beyond PesticidesEnvironmentally Safe Tools for Use in an IPM Program," targeting retail employees. The self-study course is aimed at retail, garden center, or other employees or individuals who advise consumers about the best tools and products to use for solving pest problems. The course, a basic overview of IPM and how to diagnose and manage pest problems, features information on low-toxicity tools and a range of products sold in most garden centers, as well as in many 'big box' retail stores. Course participants receive information about resistant plant varieties, types of pest trapping apparatus, beneficial species, and much more. The course, at www.ipm.ucdavis.edu (scroll down to ‘online training’) is divided into six sections and takes about one hour to complete. This is the second course aimed at retail employees, the first being "Introduction to Pesticides for Retail Employees," available at


the same website. The pair of training programs aims to increase awareness and provide knowledge that can then be utilized when advising consumers about pesticides and alternative pest management options. -> S.J.

VII. U.S. AID's IPM-COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH SUPPORT PROGRAM (IPM-CRSP) A Flexible Package of Practices Before one can observe the hoary edict “eat your vegetables,” someone has to grow them, and now the IPM-CRSP, based on years of helping to develop IPM-based practices for increasing sustainable, often smaller-scale, vegetable production under tropical conditions, has evolved a comprehensive IPM package of practices for vegetable crops in the tropics. While pest problems will vary dependent on each geographical area’s specific conditions, many of the package’s elements are, with tweaking, broadly applicable and transferable to various sites. The package first addresses preparatory steps: seed selection; seed treatment; seed nursery; seedling selection; and pre-plant soil preparation. Special attention is then given to grafting, the mating of high yield scions with disease-resistant root stock, an increasingly useful technology that has the added benefit of job creation. Selective mechanical/physical elements–-mulching, or staking–-are also cited as possible enhancements. Not surprisingly, pest management practices receive the bulk of attention in the IPM-CRSP package which sets forth well established methods of pest trapping, monitoring, use of biocontrol, and related topics. Spray application of “conventional” pesticides is downplayed in lieu of considering biopesticides and thereby avoiding growers (or others) inadvertent exposure to pesticides. IPM-CRSP officials note that adoption of some variant of the vegetable IPM package can help to alleviate food insecurity as well as boost grower income in both subsistence and commercial


settings while simultaneously decreasing pesticide exposure and potential health issues. -> IPM-CRSP Program Director, IAO, 526 Prices Fork Rd. (0378), Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061, USA.
