INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Establishment of integrated pest management program. 148-a. Integrated pest management program; specific proposals. 148-b. Dairy/forage pest management.
148-c. Fruit pest management.
148-d. Vegetable and potato pest management.
§ 148. Establishment of integrated pest management program. 1. There is hereby established an integrated pest management program for the purposes of managing insects, diseases, nematodes, weeds and rodents. Such program shall include, but not be limited to programs of instruction, research and development, the purpose of which is to educate the agricultural community and integrate programs of:
a. crop management and cultural practices;
b. field scouting;
c. economic threshold; and
d. chemical and biological control.
2. Such programs shall be developed and conducted in such a manner to encourage:
a. expanded research on biological and cultural pest management technologies, crop and pest resistance technologies;
b. use of sampling methods, economic thresholds, monitoring technology, pest forecasting, and the effects of weather on pest and crop parameters;
development of computer programs and computerized information systems for farmers and extension agents;
d. delivery of current and new integrated pest management technology to the agricultural industry through cooperative extension;
e. minimized levels of pesticides in feed, food and the environment;
minimized economic losses due to crop, animal and stored grain
Such program shall identify and make application for all possible funding sources in addition to those offered by the state.
§ 148-a. Integrated pest management program; specific proposals. 1. Within the integrated pest management program there shall be established four separate but interrelated programs for pest management and the impact thereof on the following agricultural production areas:
a. dairy/forage production system;
b. fruit production;
c. vegetable and potato production; and
d. ornamentals production.
Such programs as provided for in subdivision one hereof shall contain at least the specific proposals as provided for in sections one hundred forty-eight-b,. one hundred forty-eight-c, one hundred fortyeight-d and one hundred forty-eight-e of this article.
§ 148-b. Dairy/forage pest management. Within the integrated pest management program there shall be be established a dairy/forage pest management program. Such program shall be conducted in such a manner to achieve the following objectives:
1. develop systematic insect, disease and weed pest management strategies for use on New York dairy and cash grain farms which integrate management tactics into environmentally compatible and economically
sound systems to be used by producers, extension personnel and private enterprise;
2. obtain information regarding crop, animal and stored grain pest occurrence and severity, pesticide usage, other pest management strategies used, effective pest monitoring techniques and scouting intervals, and the effectiveness of the producer's current pest control practices;
3. determine the most effective, low-cost methods and organizational structures for delivering integrated pest management systems to individual farming operations; and
4. utilize the program that is designed to satisfy the objectives as provided for in subdivisions one, two and three of this section training mechanism for individuals at all levels of operation.
§ 148-c. Fruit pest management. Within the integrated pest management program there shall be established a fruit pest management program. Such program shall be conducted in such a manner to achieve the following objectives:
1. establish current pesticide use patterns and the economics of pest management for the major fruit crops in New York;
2. investigate alternative pest management tactics (e.g., biological and cultural control, plant resistance) and determine how to integrate these tactics with chemical control and horticultural practices;
3. develop practical monitoring techniques, economic thresholds, and forecasting methods for pests of fruit crops;
4. develop research and grower demonstration sites where integrated pest management technologies can be evaluated as an integral part of the overall fruit production system; and
5. provide the fruit industry with training, information, and educational materials on the implementation of integrated pest management utilizing traditional as well as new communication channels (e.g. computer-based information delivery systems).
§ 148-d. Vegetable and potato pest management. Within the integrated pest management program, there shall be established a vegetable and potato pest management program. Such program shall be conducted in such a manner to achieve the following objectives:
1. determine the occurrence and severity of pest problems in commercial fields, and identify the specific environmental factors influencing these events. Document the current pesticide usage and assess the effectiveness of current pest management practices;
2. determine accurate and time-efficient sampling procedures and forecasting methods which can be utilized by private consultants or through cooperative extension. Determine the economic relationship of pest incidence to yield or quality loss. Develop non-pesticide methods of pest management in the areas of cultural practices, biological control and crop resistance. In addition the proper timing, selection and use of pesticides will be integrated into the overall management programs;
3. aid growers in executing the most optimal crop protection program by providing them with timely reports on pest presence and population density levels, forecasted pest occurrences, crop growth, weather and other environmental information, and providing the most current interpretation of the data;
4. increase efforts to educate growers in the principles and tactics of integrated pest management and demonstrate the economic advantages of such a program;
5. develop concepts, techniques, and cultivars for integration of pest resistance with other management tactics in potato production (e.g. crop rotation, biological control, use of
develop pest sampling procedures, sound action thresholds, forecasting procedures, and economic data necessary for effective in use of pest resistant cultivars and other tactics for management of pests;
7. demonstrate the benefits and reliability of improved pest management tactics to the New York potato industry; and
8. monitor performance of the proposed integrated pest management program during its initial phase of implementation by the potato industry.
§ 148-e. Ornamentals pest management. Within the integrated pest management program there shall be established an ornamentals pest management program to include ornamental, turf, floriculture and greenhouse crops. Such program shall be conducted in such a manner to achieve the following objectives:
EXPLANATION-Matter in italics is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law
establish current pesticide use patterns and the economics of ̧pest management for the major ornamentals, turf, floriculture and greenhouse crops;
2. develop practical monitoring techniques, biological control methods, economic thresholds and forecasting methods for pests of such crops; and
provide the industry with training, information and educational materials on the implementation of integrated pest management programs utilizing traditional as well as new communication channels.
