Description

Abstract Text:
This is a research project requesting $180,000 in P.L 89-106 funding over the next three years to develop management strategies targeting the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) in peppers. BMSB has spread throughout the east and portions of the Midwest and west. BMSB became a severe pest of tree fruit and vegetables in 2009 and 2010. Currently, no adequate pest management alternatives exist to prevent damage to peppers creating the potential for the illegal use of insecticides. This project proposes to develop BMSB monitoring methods, assess BMSB feeding injury in pepper, evaluate cultivar susceptibility differences to BMSB feeding, determine natural enemy species composition in different cultivars, and determines the toxicity and field efficacy of selected insecticides for BMSB control. Objectives 1 and 2 will be accomplished by sampling BMSB populations and determining damage levels caused by BMSB in unsprayed sweet bell peppers. Objectives 3 and 4 will be accomplished by sampling BMSB and natural enemy populations and determining damage levels caused by BMSB in a variety of unsprayed pepper cultivars. Objective 5 will be accomplished by spraying sweet bell peppers with different insecticides to determine efficacy in terms of BMSB toxicity and reductions in damage to fruit. We anticipate this project to safeguard human health and the environment by reducing illegal of insecticides, provide economic benefits by reducing the pepper damage caused by BMSB and promote IPM implementation by developing the tools that can be used by farmers to reduce damage caused by BMSB.

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.
