About this book

This work is Developed from a symposium sponsored by the Division of Agrochemicals at the 207th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society held in San Diego, California, March 13-17, 1994. It has a multi-discipline focus on new and emerging pest control technology. It also identifies critical needs of formulation and novel delivery systems for the baculoviruses, bacteria, fungi, pheromones, hormones and nematodes being advocated for agricultural and forest pest management strategies for the 1990s. The book provides a reference for biorational agents currently used to control agricultural and forestry pests. It addresses the registration/data requirements and basic information necessary for registering environmental pest control agents.


Introduction: an overview of biorational pest control agents, Franklin R. Hall and John W. Barry, Part 1 Registration needs and data requirements: registration of biologicals: how product formulations affect data requirements, Michael L. Mendelsohn et al; a generic approach to minimizing impact on non-target species in Canada, R.E. Mickle. Part 2 Basic information needs: ecological factors critical to the exploitation of entomopathogens in pest control, James R. Fuxa; modelling the dose acquisition process of bacillus thuringiensis - influence of feeding Pattern on survival, Franklin R. Hall et al. Part 3 Delivery and environmental fate: delivery systems for biorational agents, William E. Steinke and D. Ken Giles; environmental fate and accountancy, M.E. Teske et al; factors affecting spray deposition, distribution, coverage and persistence of biorational control agents in forest canopies, Alam Sundaram; photostability and rainfastness of tebufenozide deposits on fir foliage, Kanth M.S. Sundaram; radiation protection and activity enhancement of viruses, Martin Shapiro. Part 4 Soil biorationals: formulation and delivery of biocontrol agents for use against soilborne plant pathogens, R.D. Lumsden et al; metarhizium anisopliae for soil pest control, M.R. Schwarz; formulation of entomopathogenic nematodes, R. Georgis et al. Part 5 Foliar biorationals: pheromone formulations for insect control in agriculture, Janice Gillespie et al; commercial development of entomopathogenic fungi - formulation and delivery, David W. Miller; development of novel delivery strategies for use with genetically enhanced baculovirus pesticides, H. Alan Wood and Patrick R. Hughes; starch encapsulation of microbial pesticides, M.R. McGuire and B.S. Shasha; utilization criteria for mycoherbicides, G.J. Weidemann et al, C.D. Boyette and G.E. Templeton; biological weed control technology - an overview, N.E. Rees et al. Part 6 Forest biorationals: use of insect pheromones to manage forest insects: present and future, Patrick J. Shea; impact of bacillus thuringiensis on non-target lepidopteran species in broad-leaved forests, R.C. Reardon and D.L. Wagner.
