A workshop in Ethiopia later this month will gather scientists and others to fight an invasive pest that threatens tomato crops across the world. Virginia Tech’s international agricultural research program is hosting the workshop Nov. 26 through 28 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Tuta absoluta, the tomato leafminer insect, has the potential to destroy vast tracts of tomato, the world’s most important horticultural crop.
The tiny insect, native to South America, crossed the Atlantic in 2006, when it was identified in Spain. It has since spread throughout most of Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Senegal, Sudan, and Ethiopia.
“Because tomatoes play a key role in diversifying the agricultural sectors while improving the food security of many developing countries, this threat to their production is a serious concern,” said Muni Muniappan, director of the program that is hosting the workshop. Muniappan directs the USAID-funded Integrated Pest Management Innovation Lab, managed by the Office of International Research, Education, and Development at Virginia Tech.
“The purpose of the workshop is to create an awareness of this pest and to look at ways of combating it,” Muniappan said. “When I found out the pest was in Sudan and Ethiopia, I felt it was time to inform the Eastern African and South Asian countries of this impending problem.”
The three-day workshop, Tuta absoluta — meeting the challenge of the tomato leafminer, is scheduled to draw participants from the private sector as well as representatives of influential research organizations such as the Rome-based Food and Agricultural Organization, the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology in Nairobi, Kenya, and the Tanzanian branch office of the World Vegetable Center. Presenters will review mechanical, cultural, chemical, and biological control methods for the pest, and scientists from an array of developing countries will discuss strategies they have used.
The workshop’s second day will include a trip to a tomato-growing region so that participants can see the tomato leafminer in action and learn to identify it.
“We hope to bring an awareness of the problem to eastern Africa and to South Asia,” said Muniappan, noting that participants have registered not only from eastern Africa, but also from Nepal, Bangladesh, and India. “We may be able to come up with a regulatory framework so that tomatoes from infected countries aren’t moved from one country to another.”
The insect is not yet in the United States.
This is the second workshop on the pest that the Virginia Tech-led program has hosted; the previous one was held in Dakar, Senegal, in May.
The workshop is being organized by the U.S. Agency for International Development in association with the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences and the Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research.
The event is open to all interested parties. To register, contact Muni Muniappan at email@example.com or Gashawbeza Ayalew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conclusions from the Technical Working Seminar “Plant Protection Without Borders”
The technical working seminar“Plant Protection without Borders,” organized by the Czech Phytomedical Society www.rostlinolekari.cz together with the Austrian Society for Integrated Pest Management http://www.oeaip.at/index.php/ took place in Prague 2-3 October 2013. Thirty one attendants from seven European countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia) participated in the seminar. Within the plenary session five lectures on general topics of care of plant health were presented. Abstracts on the activities of non-governmental plant health organizations presented on the seminar are available on the Czech Phytomedical Society website: http://www.rostlinolekari.cz/pages/abstract.html
Two workshops were organized: 1)“Importance of care of plant health and the role of the non-governmental plant health organizations in strengthening care of plant health,”and 2) “Why Integrated Pest Management?“ Recommendations from the workshops are listed below.
Recommendations from the workshops, “Importance of care of plant health and the role of the non-governmental plant health organizations in strengthening care of plant health”
Plant health care definition
Plant health care should be appropriately and clearly defined respecting
• Consumer friendly expression
• No interference with international terminology
• Individual language and culture which might disperse strict nomenclature
• Emphasis on integrated pest management i.e. plant protection including indirect prevention measures with focus on smallholders and non- professional users of plant protection products (with regard to the EU Directive 2009/128/EC)
• That the term phytomedicine/phytofarmacy is erratic
Importance of non-governmental plant health organizations
• Independent expert opinion needs to be communicated stronger
• Industry advisory is welcome but examined on independence
Status of non-governmental plant health organizations by countries:
o Serbia: independent opinion to special committees
o Hungary: supported by governmental authorities
o Czechia:scientific committee to brief governmental decision makers
Non-governmental plant health organizations and public awareness
Non-governmental plant health organizations should:
• Actively contact society/pressure groups
• Advise legislators on professional basis of plant protection in order that an expert opinion is a part of professional political decisions
Cooperation between plant health non-governmental organizations
Intensive communication and cooperation between non-governmental plant health organizations on a European-wide multilateral exchange of professional expertise/opinions is needed.
There is a strong need for an effective global communication platform (plant protection information and training website). It is recommended that this need be fulfilled by an international scientific society such as the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (www.plantprotection.org).
Recommendations from the workshop, “Why Integrated Pest Management?”
Reasons for the implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the world-wide context were analyzed with the following findings:
• Increasing demand for feeding the human population
• Limited conditions for agriculture (selling agriculture land etc.)
• Increasing pressure of environmental point of view on plant protection.
Therefore, sustainable crop production and relevant modern cultivation methods and technology should be supported and infrastructure to facilitate the adoption and implementation of IPM should be put in place. Farmer support of IPM should be intensified in order to strengthen their public credibility.
The participation of non-governmental plant health organizations is important in the process of IPM implementation in particular by facilitating credible information exchange on IPM.

The International Plant Resistance to Insects working group (IPRI)
Insect pests are among the most limiting constraints to crop production, inflicting losses of billions of dollars worldwide. Pesticides are routinely used to reduce the damaging impacts of pests, but if not used judiciously, they are not sustainable as they pose risks to human, animals and to the wild life in general. Host plant resistance (HPR) has been the most economical and environmentally friendly means of controlling pests.
In view of the importance of the use of genetic resistance for the control of insect pests, the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA), Morocco, the Moroccan Association of Plant Protection (MMPP) and the International Plant Resistance to Insects Working Group are organizing the 21st Biennial International Plant Resistance to Insects Workshop, which will be held in Marrakech, Morocco 14-18 April, 2014.
This workshop is planned to review the progress and recent advances in the area of host plant resistance to insect pests, and to develop international collegiality among HPR researchers. The areas that will be covered during the workshop are:
- Screening methodologies for resistance to insect pests and sources of resistance
- Breeding for resistance to insect pests through conventional and molecular strategies
- Mechanisms of resistance
- Deployment strategies of resistance genes
The workshop will be held at the Hotel Kenzi Farah in Marrakech, one of the major cities in the northwest African nation of Morocco. It is the fourth largest city in the country after Casablanca, Fes and Rabat, and is the capital of the mid-southwestern economic region of Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz. It is located to the North of the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. Founded in 1070–72 by the Almoravids, Marrakesh remained a political, economic and cultural center for a long period. Its influence was felt throughout the western Muslim world, from North Africa to Andalusia. It has several impressive monuments dating from that period: the Koutoubiya Mosque, the Kasbah, the battlements, monumental doors,gardens, etc. Later architectural jewels include the Badiâ Palace, the Ben Youssef Madrasa, the Saadian Tombs, several great residences and Place Jamaâ El Fna, a veritable open-air theater.
The conference will be held from Monday 14thto Friday 18thof April 2014 (14thto 16th: workshop and 17thto 18th: Touristic and field visits).
