Groundskeepers these days are spraying fewer pesticides around public parks and gardens, schools, arboretums, and residen tial and commercial properties in the greater Philadelphia area. That’s because landscape man agers and contractors in the region are learning about integrated pest management (IPM), thanks to the Southeast Pennsylvania IPM Re search Group, an innovative part nership among Penn State’s Col lege of Agricultural Sciences, the University of Delaware, the Penn sylvania Department of Agricul ture, and the southeastern Penn sylvania “green” industry. The Southeast Pennsylvania IPM Research Group is a model public-private collaboration that is helping to promote the use of IPM in eight counties in Pennsylvania and one county in Delaware. IPM incorporates scientific informa tion, proactive cultural practices, and a host of control tactics to Grand champion market swine, Jonathan Reinecker.

Green Industry IPM Program Reduces Pesticide Use In Pa. manage pests, and often mini mizes pesticide use. Traditionally, IPM programs are initiated by researchers at land-grant universities and other institutions who study crop and pest systems and develop new pest management methods. The co operative extension system typi cally distributes the information to growers and teaches them the new methods. However, this program has put a twist on tradition, involving pro ducers and concultants in planning and carrying out the research. The group (haws members from the private sector, including nursery men, landscapers, arborists, and public and commercial grounds managers. Work is organized and facilitated by Penn State Coopera tive Extension agents Dave Su chanic and Emelie Swackhamer and Delaware Cooperative Exten sion specialist Susan Barton, with advice and oversight from Penn Lancaster Farming, Saturday, October 24, 1998-05 HEAVY MIDDLEWEIGHT CLASS b 1 Chns Jelfcoat 2 Robbie Hay 3 Brad Keeler CHAMPION MIDDLEWEIGHT HOG Chns Jeftcoat RESERVE CHAMPION MIDDLEWEIGHT Russell Lawrence LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CLASS 7 1 Jonahtan Reinecker, 2 Glen Stockslager, 3 Ryan Cooke MIDDLE HEAVYWEIGHT CLASS 8 1 Jim Phillips, 2 Chns Jelfcoat, 3 Brad Keefer HEAVY HEAVYWEIGHT CLASS 9 1 Jonathan Reinecker 2 Sheena Hay 3 Sheena Hav CHAMPION HEAVYWEIGHT HOG Jonathan Reinecker RESERVE CHAMPION HEAVYWEIGHT Jim Phillips SWINE SENIOR SHOWMAN 1 Chns Jeffcoat 2 Andrew Reinecker 3 Chad Funt SWINE INTERMEDIATE SHOWMAN 1 Russell Lawrence, 2 Missy Jeffcoat. 3 Allyson Cole SWINE JUNIOR SHOWMAN 1 Jim Phillips 2 Charlene Mamula 3 Jason Brent State and University of Delaware researchers and Pennsylvania De partment of Agriculture special ists. The organization focuses first on forecasting key plant and pest events. By observing weather con ditions, plant development and pest populations, specialists often can predice the timing and sever ity of pest outbreaks. Control mea sures, such as pesticides, then can be used only when necessary. The group also is making strides in education by offering in depth workshops on specific pests, a weekly bulletin, pest walks, biannual IPM conferences, consumer IPM fact sheets and an upcoming site on the Internet The results of the program are promising. For example, subscrib ers to the group’s weekly scouting projects have drastically reduced routine, preventive pesticide spraying now members spray only as needed.

Suchanic said the group makes the most of limited resources, sharing the cost of weather-moni toring equipment and other sup plies. “We’re doing some pretty good work on a shoestring bud get,” he said. “Penn State’s De partment of Entomology also has contributed key resources.” In addition, the group is advised by cooperative extension experts from Penn State and the Univer sity of Delaware, as well as spe cialists from the Pennsylvania De partment of Agriculture to ensure that experimental designs and data analyses are correct. “Our re search is planned by the people who will use the results, so we are pretty sure to address the right problems,” Suchanic said. “And with a dedicated group of techni cal advisors behind us, we can be confident our group is addressing the problems correctly.
