Archaeological studies indicate that maize was domesticated in Oaxaca 10,000 years ago Introduction to Europe from the American continent via Christopher Columbus. Today, it is grown worldwide: staple in Africa and parts of China Varietal development: favorable characteristics include nutritional value, tolerance to acidic or salty soils, resistance to diseases (mostly viruses) and insects (Bt), 1 genetic line fixes nitrogen Mexico is the seat of the International Centre for Investigations for the Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT): part of the CGIAR system (that includes IRRI).

Western corn rootworm, D. virgifera Helicoverpa zea Problems: world Leaf feeders Sucking pests - virus disease transmission Stemborers Earworms Storage pests Fungus diseases (minor for maize) Weeds - including parasitic witchweeds Striga spp. Weed management: Pre-emergence herbicide application Virus disease transmission Tolerant / resistant varieties / hybrids now available Plant early in the season Eradicate grass weeds Control vectors Maize streak virus (MSV) transmitted by Cicadulina mbila Helicoverpa spp. Corn earworm: H. armigera - polyphagous (Africa, Asia) H. zea (Americas) Maize stemborers Include: Chilo partellus Busseola fusca (maize stalk borer) Controls: Cultural (remove crop residues) Plant resistance (moderate tolerance) Biological (little success) Chemical - to kill young larvae before they enter the stems 2

Of 23 Oryza species, 2 have been cultivated: Oryza sativa, originated in the humid tropics of Asia: cultivated rice has evolved into three eco-geographic races - indica, japonica and javanica.

4 Preparation and planting ICM of tropical rice Issues include: Cultivation practices (upland, transplanted, direct seeded etc.) Selection of rice varieties True crop losses Role of natural enemies Role of pesticides Application issues Rice farmers don t only apply insecticides! Mode of pest attack Application equipment Formulations (for spraying, GRs etc.) Safety Crop architecture & biological targets Top e.g. rice bug, hispa Whole canopy e.g. eggs of stemborers, rice blast fungicides Base e.g. brown plant hopper, sheath blight Root zone (systemic pesticides) Anamorphic rice diseases Bacterial blight ( Kresek ) Rice blast Magnaporthe grisea = Pyricularia oryzae Sheath blight Rhizoctonia solanii Wilting appears sporadically in the field and may cause serious damage. Due to early systemic infection of from infected seeds and bacterium spread by contact with geminating seedlings. Commonly occurs within 3-4 weeks after planting resulting in either the death of whole the plants of wilting of only a few leaves. 4

7 Photos: IRRI Green leafhoppers (Nephotettix spp.) (virus disease vectors: e.g. Tungro ) Pesticides on rice: issues Human toxicity Economic necessity? Resurgence (especially of hoppers) impact on natural enemies crop-insect physiological responses Pesticides: especially neurotoxic insecticides Loevinsohn, 1987 documented and undocumented! Insecticide-induced resurgence BPH changed from the status of secondary pest to a major yield constraint beginning in the l960s. Increased use of resurgence-inducing insecticides (including OPs and pyrethroids) has been considered the major cause of intensified brown planthopper problems. Resurgence-inducing insecticides are selectively toxic to the predators of the brown planthopper and result in a dramatic population increase of the brown planthopper after insecticide application. See: Rice is an agro-ecosystem Pesticides such as pyrethroids are toxic to NTOs such as fish - despite claims to the contrary! Approaches Green revolution Monitoring - response (action thresholds) Low input IPM (FAO initiative): via Farmer Field Schools (FFS) emphasising conservation of natural enemies BUT thresholds are dramatically lower in presence of virus diseases 7

R. argentiventer Bandicota bengalensis Conclusions Tropical cereals: strong political and other pressures to minimise inputs for small-holder farmers IPM is also about control of diseases (including viruses) and weeds Emphasis on improved varieties and cultural methods (timing, water management for rice) Insecticides used often still tend to be the cheap, older, neurotoxic compounds and may cause resurgence of BPH etc. Nevertheless, pesticides are still widely used 9
