Description

Abstract Text:
This integrated project utilizes a multi-regional, transdisciplinary approach for the development and dissemination of whole-farm organic management for the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB). It is the direct result of a 2011 USDA-OREI planning project. BMSB is an invasive insect causing severe economic loss in Mid-Atlantic States, with damage increasing in Southern states. It is an especially devastating pest for organic farmers. Current organic management tactics have not mitigated damage because BMSB is highly mobile, feeds on a diverse number of crops and occupies a large geographic area. Thus, whole-farm management is required for effective organic control. This will aid growers in the selection and planning of trap crops, enhancing natural enemies and cultural control, all of which will be researched in this project. We will investigate the cues and capacity for dispersal and identify movement patterns that will be integrated into development and execution of proactive stink bug management. We will partner with eOrganic to aid in the novel dissemination of research findings, which will be supplemented with annual on-farm demonstrations and social media. This project directly addresses OREI goals 1 and 6 as BMSB represents a major threat to organic production across many commodities. Our project has the support or involvement of 25 researchers, 3 organic organizations, and 12 organic farmers and will have national impact. Seven farmer-stakeholders have been fully engaged in the development of this proposal and will continue to play an integral role in research and outreach activities.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
