IPMnet NEWS October 2001, Issue no. 94 ISSN: 1523-7893 Š Copyright 2005 IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs Agrichemical Security Measures Urged A consortium of U.S. organizations encourages all businesses or individuals worldwide that manufacture, store, market, transport, and utilize agrichemicals to activate rigorous security measures and remain highly vigilant, not only to theft, but to the potential for abuse and malicious misuse. A summary of procedures for improving security includes: Establish and maintain facility perimeter security; Limit access to all storage areas, and tightly control access keys; Assure that locks are case-hardened, tamper-resistant, and in top working order; Use cable seal locks to secure individual storage containers; Maintain thorough stock records and perform frequent inventories; Provide exterior lighting and systems for handling emergency situations (video cameras, alarms, etc.) and frequently check systems for full functionality; Establish contact with local law enforcement and fire authorities; Post a list of emergency contacts (names, phone numbers, etc.) at facility entrance exterior. Security also involves being alert to unusual or suspicious actions. Indications that something is amiss may include unusual behavior by a purchaser or other individual who: Seems unfamiliar with details of using an agrichemical; Acts nervous, seems uneasy or vague, and avoids eye contact; Demands immediate possession of purchased material instead of available future delivery; Asks for material in smaller, individual containers rather than in bulk; Insists on paying with cash instead of using credit or a cheque. The consortium suggests promptly reporting any suspicious activity to designated authorities. compiled, with thanks, from various sources.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources II. IPM MEDLEY general matters, publications of interest, and other resources for IPM information The Ongoing Threat of Invasive Plants The overwhelming impact of invasive plant species in Australia recently moved weed scientist R.P. Randall to comment that, "Regardless of the supposed virtues of any plant medicinal, utility, pasture, crop, or just plain nice to look atthe concept of "weediness" still seems to elude most people." "Why," Randall recently wrote in an article for the Enviroweeds news group, "are plants considered to be any different than diseases or insects? Plants introduced into the environment interact with other species, leave traces, make changes, and slowly alter the original environment. "No other class of organisms is transported around the world in such variety and quantity as plants. Millions of tons of bulbs and seeds every year comprising thousands of species are spread all over the planet, and so few people appreciate the enormous potential impacts of all this movement." Very little if any thought is given to importing a new plant species, says Dr. Randall, whereas introducing an insect or pathogen immediately raises serious concern about potential negative impacts. Because of biodiversitythe vast differences in the flora and fauna between countries, bioregions, and ecosystems there is a false belief that introducing new plant species will enhance the environment, Randall says, whereas the results can be just the opposite, and often even catastrophic. Randall points out that, particularly in Australia which already suffers from the impacts of numerous introduced and invasive plant species, there needs to be much greater sensitivity to, and prevention of, this threat. While, "It's a quantum leap in peoples' minds to start considering weedy plant species in the same light as infectious pathogens," concludes Randall, "it has to happen or we will eventually end up with a global flora no more diverse than at your favorite nursery." thanks to R.P. Randall and the Enviroweeds news group for permission to excerpt, and include, his remarks.

BIOCONTROL'S SUCCESS: A REVIEW When it is successful, biological control of pest species can be elegant, self-sustaining, non-polluting, and cost effective. A 2000 publication, BIOLOGICAL CONTROL: MEASURES OF SUCCESS, notes that, for the most documented biocontrol programs (of arthropods by arthropods), only one in ten attempts succeed. Editors G.M. Gurr and S.D. Wratten, with material provided by a host of international scientists as both


authors and reviewers, analyze why the majority of biocontrol attempts have failed, as well as examine the components of those that achieved their goals, some in spectacular fashion. The overall thrust of the hardbound, 448-page monograph clearly supports the growing importance of biocontrol across a variety of pest groups, and offers a synthesis for increasing future success rates. *> Kluwer Academic Publishers, PO Box 17, 3300 AZ Dordrecht, THE NETHERLANDS.

NEW TITLES FROM CSIRO Together, two 2001 volumes from CSIRO Australia, each with its own character, offer an in-depth overview of the continent's weeds and the danger they pose. NOXIOUS WEEDS OF AUSTRALIA, 2nd Edition, not only updates material from the original 1992 edition, but absolutely overwhelms with its 712 pages of detailed information and clear full color photos throughout. Authors W.T. Parsons and E.G. Cuthbertson, while meticulously describing dozens of weed species and mapping their presence in Australia, have created a weed identification source with international usefulness. Nomenclature, habitat, description, life cycle, origin, properties, and control are cited for each included species with material ranging from Abutilon to Zyogramma. The hardbound work reflects a graphically pleasing format. Invasive species' impact on native vegetation (see Randall comments, above) poses a threat to bio-diversity worldwide, second only to habitat destruction, as well as causing crop losses, reduced ecosystem services, and human health problems. Editors R.H. Groves, et al, explore the emerging discipline of WEED RISK ASSESSMENT as applied to plant invasion ecology. The 256-page, softbound monograph offers a global context for synthesizing recent theories on plant invasions. Several models for weed risk assessment are introduced as are procedures for ranking invasive species to determine their relative significance. Application of weed risk assessment approaches presented have the potential to reduce the negative impact of weeds. *> CSIRO Publishing, PO Box 1139, Collingwood, VIC 3066, AUSTRALIA.

PLANT BUG PROFILE The Miridae (plant bugs), the largest family of the Heteroptera, are considered globally important pests of many principal crops. Recent worldwide activity in mirid systematics and biology indicates increasing interest in plant bugs, especially with adoption of high-yielding, resistance-lacking varieties. To help meet the need for a comprehensive new reference, noted entomologist A.G. Wheeler, Jr., has authored BIOLOGY OF THE PLANT BUGS, Pests, Predators, Opportunists. The 2001, hardbound work offers a thorough, extensively illustrated review that emphasizes the relationships of mirids to IPM as natural enemies of crop pests. In addition to numerous line drawings, tables, and other illustrations, the 528-page work includes a 24-page full color insert containing 170 images. Dr. Wheeler concludes with suggestions for future research, nomenclature appendixes, a glossary, and a monster reference list. *> Cornell Univ.

NEW MANAGEMENT HANDBOOK ARRIVES A 2000, hardbound volume, PEST AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT HANDBOOK, succeeds the 1989 version of the Pest and Disease Control Handbook, 3rd edition, and significantly increases text devoted to integrated crop protection and other allied trends. A new lead-off chapter covers the principles of pest and disease management;


11 chapters follow, each focused on a specific temperate northern hemisphere crop or crop group, written by experts in the field. The 624-page authoritative reference was edited by D.V. Alford and published for the British Crop Protection Council. *> Blackwell Science, Osney Mead, Oxford OX2 0EL, UK. E-mail: Sabrina.Righi@blacksci.co.uk. Fax: 44-01-865-721205.

Editors J.A. Lockwood, et al present material based on papers from a 1996 symposium at which widely differing viewpoints on the safety and/or risks of importing natural biocontrol agents to control introduced pest species. The 130-page, softbound work reflects a thoughtful dialog based on facts and values. *> Sales-ESA, 9301 Annapolis Rd., Ste. 300, Lanham, MD 20706, USA. E-mail: sales@entsoc.org. Fax: 1-301-731-3473.

MANAGING WILDLIFE DAMAGE The U.S.-based Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management (ICWDM) has issued a CD version of its broad-range PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF WILDLIFE DAMAGE Handbook, a comprehensive reference of North American vertebrate species that can (and often do) cause economic damage to resources, or become a nuisance element. The CD is based on a ring-binder hardcopy version (copies in short supply) and presents details in both text and illustration for more than 90 wildlife species divided


into five main groups. S.E. Hygnstrom, et al, edited the volume which includes material from a large group of wildlife specialists. An introductory section addresses damage identification and another chapter covers supplies and materials such as repellents, traps, frighteners, etc. *> Wildlife Damage Handbook CD, 202 Natural Resources Hall, Univ. of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE 68583-0819, USA.

WEBSITE, VIDEO, & OTHER SOURCES IPM AND OTHER ISSUES A veteran commentator on IPM and pest management development has compiled a cluster of websites covering not only IPM, but a range of related topics. Shortly after writing the Consumers Union-sponsored book, PEST MANAGEMENT AT THE CROSSROADS, in 1996, C.M. Benbrook began constructing websites for IPM www.pmac.net, biotechnology, organic food and farming, and pesticide regulation (U.S.), predominantly built on Dr. Benbrook's extensive experience and articulate commentaries, but including articles and news stories from many other sources. While some material tends to be archival in nature, many of the IPM offerings are relatively new. *> C.M. Benbrook, 5085 Upper Pack River Rd., Sandpoint, ID 83864, USA. E-mail: Benbrook@hillnet.com.

MEETING PLANNING GUIDE While it is specific to the Southern African Society for Plant Pathology (SASPP), the group's highly detailed CONGRESS PLANNING GUIDE could be a useful and informative starting point for nearly any organization, and those assuming the not insignificant challenge of organizing a successful event. The document lays out not only organization, but responsibilities, timelines, communication hints, and numerous other suggestions.

EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, & SERVICES PLANT GROWTH SENSOR Agricultural engineers at Ohio State Univ. (USA) have developed a biomass sensing device that calculates the volume of a plant and compares the result to the plant's expected ("normal") growth at any point during the growing period. The resulting information can help growers determine the overall health of a crop and whether there is need for inputs such as irrigation, pest management, or fertilization. The sensor alerts growers to a potential problem by comparing measurements of crop growth against a predetermined normal growth rate. The device is similar to a radar unit in that it scans, at a 180-degree angle, the cross section of a crop plant, and creates a map that calculates overall plant volume. Sensors can be mounted on tractors so that growth information can be collected while performing other operations. *> M.R. Ehsani, Ehsani.2@osu.edu. A WEED "ROAD MAP" A group of weed scientists has devised a novel format to illustrate weed species commonly found in Mentha piperita (peppermint) in the U.S. state of Oregon. One side of the 2001, broad-sheet sized, 85 x 57 cm (33.5 x 22.5 in.), WEED MANAGEMENT IN MINT, (Em 8774), presents full color photos of nearly 40 key weed species in field settings, plus brief descriptions. The reverse side offers a highly detailed table of "Herbicides for Mint" listing modes of action, nomenclature, recommended dosages, and relevant weed notes. The publication is printed on durable, high quality paperstock and pre-folded into a handy "map" configuration. *> J.B. Colquhoun, CSS, Oregon State Univ., Corvallis, OR 97331, USA.

An underlying theme of both events was the possible future realignment of national pest management activities and organization so as to increase emphasis on agroecological divisions (which could be geographic, crop oriented, or otherwise defined). The dual events drew 60+ participants representing a wide range of interests: commodities, research, and authorities. Attendees not only discussed the agroecological matter and the Centers' future, but also considered the importance and structure of internal and external communication strategies. *> R.S.
