In agriculture-oriented circles the world over, IPM has become a well-known catch word. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is defined by FAO as encouraging the farmer to use 'all suitable methods' to control pests. Sometimes organic, sometimes non-organic. To each his or, as the case may be, her own. Many IPM initiatives are underway, some with support from CTA. The IPM Europe network brings together European IPM research teams. The network can offer the ACP farmer and researcher useful services. Its database is more usefully interrogated through its user-friendly managers than through its Internet interface: they will willingly give relevant details of almost 600 research projects, a list that is growing at the rate of 10% a year. The idea for an African IPM Forum was promulgated at ICWESA, an IPM communications and information workshop for Eastern and Southern Africa, held in Nairobi in March 1998. ICWESA's concerns were to share information among IPM bodies, principally through electronic networks. Contact: D. Romeijn, IPM Europe Projects Database PO Box 88 6700 AB Wageningen The Netherlands.
