Four new ENDURE leaflets in French are now available: three focus on biocontrol options in major crops while the fourth is the French version of the fifth leaflet in the Training in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) series, which examines options for controlling the South American tomato leafminer, a new invasive pest affecting tomato crops in Europe.
ENDURE researchers have developed a new approach for the fast and cost-effective development of biological control products. Called SelectBioControl, the approach encompasses all the successive steps crucial to the development, production, registration and marketing of such products.
The Network of Excellence may be finished but ENDURE continues to thrive in its new form: a European Research Group supported by all 14 research, extension and education partners in the original project. It is being coordinated by INRA in France.
For a different take on ENDURE’s International Conference, the UK’s Farmers Weekly and its online sister publication, Farmers Weekly Interactive, have a series of articles on the event and the work of ENDURE. And news of the event also features in the latest edition of IPMnet News, the electronic newsletter which reaches thousands of IPM specialists around the world.
If you missed ENDURE’s 2010 International Conference, IPM in Europe - The ENDURE Network of Excellence shares the fruits of four years’ research with the crop protection community, or were there and want to refresh your memory, all the presentations can now be consulted online and video footage can be enjoyed on the INRA website.
Two new leaflets in the From Science to Field series from ENDURE’s winter crops based cropping systems case study (WCCS) are now available, detailing advanced and innovative systems for three regions of France and exploring a range of options for the UK.
Twenty five leaflets have been translated into French and added to the website. They include 19 leaflets in the From Science to Field series (De la Théorie à la Pratique) from ENDURE's case study teams, four in the Training in Integrated Pest Management series (Formation en Lutte Intégrée) and three in the Social Science Insights series (Considérations Sociales liées à la Protection des Cultures) .
ENDURE is determined to play a positive role in aiding European Member States which must ‘establish or support the establishment of necessary conditions for the implementation’ of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as part of Europe’s long-term plans for the sustainable use of pesticides. A key part of the support ENDURE can offer policy makers is now reaching fruition with the publication of ENDURE Policy Briefs, a range of briefing documents designed to provide insights into the conditions necessary for the successful implementation of IPM.
Training in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) will be of crucial importance as European nations grapple with the complexities of ensuring IPM becomes a field reality in the coming years. To help the process, ENDURE’s training experts have produced an IPM Training Guide, which can now be downloaded from this site. It includes ready-to-use teaching and discussion modules, enabling advisers and IPM teachers to pick and choose from more than 60 different elements to create their own IPM learning sessions.
ENDURE’s research team dedicated to the exploitation of natural biological processes has now published three leaflets exploring biocontrol in selected crops: grapevine, tomato and maize. Each leaflet examines the crop's place in European agriculture and the major threats to production, before examining the biocontrol options available.
