News Release
No. 112/96 26 September 1996
ADB Approves US$44 Million for Indonesia's Integrated Pest Management for Smallholder Estate Crops Project
Indonesia's smallholder estate crop farmers will be introduced to environmentally friendly integrated pest management practices as an alternative to the use of pesticides under a US$44 million loan approved today by the Asian Development Bank. The Integrated Pest Management for Smallholder Estate Crops Project will target farmers whose incomes are affected by considerable yield losses largely caused by pests, diseases, and lack of knowledge about improved crop and pest management practices. The integrated pest management approach has been successfully promoted in rice. The project will take advantage of the achievements of the first Bank-assisted National Estate Crops Protection Project, and utilize the human resources and physical infrastructure already in place. It will also accelerate research to identify and field-test new pest management technologies. Plant quarantine services at strategic locations will be strengthened so that Indonesia can upgrade its standards to the level of its major competitors and enhance its access to export markets. Estate crops are a significant source of income for about 32% of the 11.5 million Indonesian rural households. Recent developments in the country's smallholder estate crop subsector indicate that there are opportunities for intensive crop and pest management practices to benefit the environment and increase farmers' income.

E arly Season Insect Pest Management For Cucurbit Crops - Spring 2004 - One of the key insect pests of early-planted cucurbit crops is the squash bug. Adult squash bugs overwinter under debris around production fields from which they moved last summer and fall. Research currently underway at Oklahoma State University indicates that the adults are active throughout the winter in southern Oklahoma and move around near overwintering sites but remain close to the site. In 2003 we found that adult squash bugs began long distance movement to search for cucurbit hosts in early May. In southeastern Oklahoma, adult squash bugs were found on squash plants in early May. The movement of the bugs corresponded to a daylength of 13.6 hours and a soil temperature of approximately 70 o F at inches below bare soil (as reported by the Oklahoma Mesonet system for 3 day running averages). Watermelon producers with a goal of harvesting fruit by the 4 th of July must plant transplants by early-April. These plants will be extremely attractive to squash bugs because there will be very few other cucurbit host plants available in late-April and early-May. Therefore, producers should scout fields and examine plants for adult squash bugs and eggs under crown leaves of plants. Control measures should be directed towards killing the adult squash bugs that move into fields early in the season and prior to mating and egg laying. Specific recommendations for scouting and controlling squash bugs and other insect pests can be obtained from your County Cooperative Extension Office.

AUSTIN — Agriculture Commissioner Susan Combs announced today that the Texas Department of Agriculture has awarded $300,000 to allow 26 projects to conduct research into integrated pest management techniques that help producers use alternative methods of farming, such as biological insects and adjusted planting dates, to control insects, plant diseases and weeds. "As many commodity prices continue to be low, Texas farmers welcome ways offered by integrated pest management techniques to reduce their production costs through the use of less pesticides and other inputs," Combs said. "This year’s grant projects will affect a wide spectrum of crops grown across Texas, from traditional commodities such as cotton, corn and sorghum, to new alternative crops like sunflowers." Integrated pest management is a farming system that curbs pest populations by using a variety of practices including biological pest controls, pest-resistant crop plants, crop rotations, planting date adjustments and crop residue destruction. Under IPM, pesticides are used only when IPM methods fail to control problems that threaten to cause significant crop damage. The IPM grant projects awarded for 2002 are: ** Cotton Ginning Impacts on Boll Weevils ($35,000)—

Early agriculturalists faced serious pests that decimated crops. profitable, safe, and durable (longlasting and self-maintaining) approach to pest management.
Ecologically Based Pest Management
Executive Summary
Pests develop resistance to synthetic chemical pesticides, just as microbial pathogens of humans develop resistance to antibiotics. In fact, pest resistance currently limits the efficacy of many insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides; and there are pests such as plant-parasitic nematodes and bacteria for which no effective pesticides are available. Many synthetic chemical pesticides are broad-spectrum, killing not only arthropod and pathogen pests but also beneficial organisms that serve as natural pest-control systems. Without benefit of the natural controls that keep pest populations in check, growers become increasingly dependent on chemical pesticides to which pests may eventually develop resistance. Thus there is an urgent need for an alternative approach to pest management that can complement and partially replace current chemically based pest-management practices. Pest-management strategies can be viewed in context of whole-farming systems. In whole-farming systems, pest-management methods are integrated into other management components of agronomic systems such as crop fertilization, cultivation, cropping patterns, and farm economics. Such alternative farm-management strategies that promote soil and plant health, and water quality were recommended by the National Research Council in their report Alternative Agriculture (National Research Council, 1989b).

Integrated pest management using pheromones
These compounds can be used in many ways to reduce the amount of conventional pesticide applied to crops. Pheromones can be used to determine how many pests are present, to lure the pests into traps, and to confuse the pests so they do not reproduce.

I ntensified pest control seems to be the best way to feed the world's growing population, from both political and social viewpoints (see sidbar, The problem: Providing food for a growing population Of course, it would be a mistake to overlook the benefits of pesticides. During the past few decades, pesticide use has increased agricultural outputs worldwide. Yet in percentage terms, crop losses have remained unchanged since the 1950s (
TO SIDEBAR: The problem: Providing food...
In response to the problems caused by the increased use of conventional pesticides, the concept of integrated pest management (IPM) was developed. IPM combines chemical, biological, and agrotechnical approaches to achieve pest control at a reasonable cost while minimizing damage to the environment. It is important to note that, in the case of agricultural exports, nothing less than total eradication of pests is required to prevent the transfer of agricultural pests between countries. The first step in IPM is effective monitoring using pheromones. The pest is located, and its diffusion in the field or orchard is determined. Next, the best method is selected for the given situation. Biological and biologically derived pest control methods exploit the known natural enemies of pests and parasites but do not attack harmless insects; two examples are bacteria (such as

Contact Us W elcome to the Cornell University Department of Entomology in Ithaca, NY. I n 1874 John Henry Comstock founded our Department of Entomology, the first department of its kind in the U.S.A. Comstock assembled a group of fine scholars including Bradley, Forbes, Johannsen, Matheson, Needham, and Slingerland. Their influence is still evident in the Department's Comstock Memorial Library, which is among America's foremost collections of entomological literature, and in the Department's insect collection, which houses approximately six million specimens including many designated as types. C W e currently have 16 faculty, three joint appointees and 12 adjunct professors. The major research areas within the Department are morphology and systematics, pest management (especially of forage, greenhouse, vegetable and livestock insects), biological control, ecology, evolutionary biology and behavior, sociobiology, medical and veterinary entomology, pathology, apiculture, toxicology and physiology. T he Department's teaching program offers training for undergraduate and graduate students. Our Field of Entomology has 48 graduate students, and it consistently ranks as one of the strongest graduate programs in the U.S.A. Undergraduate majors number approximately 20.
