Integrated Pest Management for Turf
Author: Pam Charbonneau - Turfgrass Specialist/OMAF Creation Date: June 2000 Last Reviewed: 31 July 2003
Table of Contents
Integrated pest management is a concept that has been practised in agriculture for 30 years or more. There have been many definitions for pest management put forth but the people working on integrated pest management in Canada have arrived at the following definition. Integrated pest management is a broadly based method that uses all suitable control measures to reduce pest related losses to an acceptable level with the goal of respecting genetic diversity and reducing risks to human health and environment. The fundamentals of an integrated pest management program are:
  • planning and managing turf to prevent organisms from becoming pests
  • identification of potential turf pests
  • monitoring populations of pests, beneficial organisms and all other relevant environmental factors

The Evolution of Integrated Pest Management to Integrated Crop Management in Vegetable Crops
Author: Jim Chaput - Vegetable IPM Specialist/OMAF Creation Date: 01 April 2000 Last Reviewed: 01 April 2000 Putting together an integrated crop management program for vegetables requires a team of expertise from all levels of the industry and a wide range of disciplines. It also requires clear and concise communication and an ability to adapt to changes on a regular basis. The key components to consider in an ICM program include: soil fertility, crop nutrition, seed health, greenhouse transplant health, varieties, cultivation practices, marketing options, market price, weather, irrigation, rainfall, insects, diseases, weeds, physiological disorders, nematodes, beneficials, pest control products, spraying technology, neighbouring crops, topography, rotations, carry-over effects, tolerance thresholds and post-harvest handling procedures and storage. As an example, aphids are a common pest of many vegetable crops. Consider that all of the following issues might affect the level and severity of aphids in a crop: nutrition, especially nitrogen levels, variety of crop, daily and weekly temperatures, rainfall and irrigation patterns and amounts, beneficial predators and parasites, sprayer efficacy, insecticide resistance, effect of pyrethroids on beneficials, market tolerances, neighbouring crops, weed management and potential as virus vectors.

Field Corn Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the practice of integrating various pest management methods (chemical, cultural, biological, genetic, etc.) and pest control disciplines (entomology, plant pathology, weed science, etc.) into a systematic approach to pest management decision making that targets optimization of net return in crop production while minimizing environmental impact. As a management practice, IPM decision making is based on information collected from the field in a systematic manner. As a result, the practice of IPM depends on a field monitoring of pest populations and crop developments which is often referred to as field scouting. Application of IPM procedures to corn production may be executed by (1) growers scouting fields themselves, (2) contracting the services of a field scout or consultant, or (3) commercial ag service personnel including field scouting as part of their service to clients purchasing their products. The pest management decision making process may be exercised by anyone if procedures are clearly understood and field information has been collected and recorded in an accurate and timely manner.
Corn IPM Program Features
An IPM program applied to field corn may include one or more of the following features:
  • Pre-planting detection of soil pests such as wireworms and grubs.

    Integrated Pest Management for Greenhouse Crops
    Water Management Guidelines for Nursery/Floral Producers
    Integrated pest management for greenhouse crops is complex, and each problem situation or production objective is accompanied by a wide range of potentially acceptable solutions. There are also a great many legal implications regarding the recommendations and use of any management tactic or pesticide product in accordance to instructions specified on the product's label. The user of any pesticide is always responsible for his or her own actions. The following are some general considerations for the development of an integrated pest management program for commercial production or maintenance systems: Determine Your Objective Pest management programs should be designed to meet a specific production objective. In greenhouse production, this objective is usually to produce pest and damage-free plants. However, in some situations, the objective may be to maintain healthy plants. This would allow for some tolerance of minor insect or mite pest damage. Additionally, a preference for the use of no or low-toxic pesticides may be desirable. This is particullarly important in regard to the potential contamination of surface and groundwater. Financial constraints also play a role in determining the overall objectives of an IPM program. All of these factors significantly effect the suppression tactics to be implemented. Sanitation Practices The first steps to take in a program to manage plant pests are preventative, and starting with a clean production area is essential. Greenhouses can be fumigated or otherwise treated prior to establishing a new crop to help eliminate pest problems from previous crops. However, where plants at different stages of growth or species are grown in the same area, treatment of pests is recommended prior to establishing the next crop. Elimination of weeds and other alternate hosts of plant pests will also help prevent problems on the new crop.

    USDA Crop Profiles
    FQPA instructs USDA and EPA to obtain pesticide use and usage data on the major and minor crops. Of particular importance at this time are use and usage data for the organophosphates, carbamates, and possible carcinogens. These classes of pesticides have been identified as top priority at EPA for the tolerance reassessment process. These same pesticides are also vital in the production of many of our crops. Because some of these uses may be cancelled, it is important to identify where we stand now, where we need to be in the future, and what research efforts are needed to get us there. In order to better understand where future research efforts should lead, it is necessary first to identify areas of critical need (i.e., those crops that have few if any alternative control measures available). To help USDA and EPA obtain this type of information, "Crop Profiles" are being developed. It is the intent that profiles provide the complete production story for a commodity and a look at current research activities directed at finding replacement strategies for the pesticides of concern. Crop Profiles include typical use information (not simply what pesticide labels state) and have a common format for ease of use. This site is part of the effort by the USDA Pest Management Centers to provide information critical to pest management needs in the United States.

    Plant Biotechnology: Potential Impact for Improving Pest Management in European Agriculture:
    A Summary of Nine Case Studies
    In 2002, the National Center for Food and Agricultural Policy (NCFAP) released a study that estimated the current and potential impacts of biotechnology in the United States by examining 40 case studies to project economic impacts for 47 states. The U.S. study focused on biotech crops that would improve pest management for weeds, insects and plant diseases. During the research, NCFAP noted that many of the same crop pests were present in Europe and that European researchers were testing biotech crops for managing the pests. In the fall of 2002 and spring of 2003, NCFAP received funds from Monsanto, Syngenta and BIO to estimate the potential impacts of biotech crops on European agriculture. NCFAP’s proven methodology and strong ties to European researchers made it an ideal organization to conduct the first comprehensive study of how biotechnology could impact European agriculture. This summary is the second release of information from a research project that, upon completion, will include 15 case studies where biotechnology solutions to major pest problems are under development in Europe. The June 2003 release included three case studies. The remaining 6 case studies will be released in June 2004 with the full report.
