  1. Pest Detection And CAPS Coanne E. O’Hern National Survey Coordinator USDA-APHIS-PPQ-PDMP Riverdale, MD National IPM Coordination Meeting Washington, DC Sept. 14-15, 2004

  2. Structure of PPQ

  3. PDMP Organizational chart

  4. CPHST (Center for Plant Health, Science and Technology) • Scientific support for the Agency programs • Projects (risk-based mapping etc.) • PRA’s • Pest ranking for CAPS/PD list. • GPDD (Global Pest & Disease Database) • Survey aids/new tools for survey

  5. CAPS Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey

  6. What is CAPS? • Combined cooperative effort • Federal and State organizations • Survey for plant pests, bio-control organisms and weeds

  7. CAPS Components • Field surveys • Laboratory identification • State & project databases • National database (NAPIS) • Electronic information exchange • Strong interagency relationships

  8. How are surveys prioritized? • National Lists • Regional Lists • State Lists • Survey proposals developed by state • Regional CAPS committees review • Sent to Regional Director with recommendations for approval

  9. Funding • Previously… • $6 mil for PD program • Now… • $24 mil approximately for FY2004 • Increase possible for FY 2005 • Goal: to obtain $100 mil • Core funding estab. for States

  10. Where we are now • Restructured CAPS system • Pest lists/Prioritization • Increased Funding • New technologies • Homeland Security • National Invasive Species Council

  11. Emerald Ash Borer Where we are going • Increased exotic pest detection surveys across the U.S. • Further Pest list usage and commodity surveys • Continue to build infrastructure for pest detection as new $ become available • Development of offshore pest information system • Use survey tools such as Risk Mapping, GIS/GPS systems, pathway analyzes and pest risk analyses to further the goals of PD • VS/PPQ Collaboration • Partnering with other agencies/groups

  12. Supportand Enhancements • CPSHT • Industry interested in helping us • Volunteer programs • CSREES and the NPD; other units? • Added Pest Survey Spec positions (26) • Added ID positions (5) within the • NIS structure Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

  13. Tools to do the job

  14. NAPPFAST Probability Maps

  15. ISIS • Integrated Survey Information System • Cooperative agreement with the J.D. Edwards Honors Program- Univ. of NE • Used for data collection on PDA’s This the screen on a computer desktop

  16. CAPS Database • NAPIS = National Agricultural Pest Information System • Housed at Purdue University thru a coop. agreement • Tracks pest distribution • Provides data management • Websites • Maps pest distribution • Public website, restricted website for CAPS cooperators • Database requires an ID and password

  17. NAPIS Public Website URL: http://ceris.purdue.edu/napis

  18. Collaborations

  19. NPDN • National Plant Diagnostic Network • Importance of early detection • CSREES Initiative for the Plant Diagnostic Labs (5) • NAPIS/Purdue part in initiative • PPQ’s role as a partner

  20. Volunteers • ALB in Chicago • NE Private consultant company; using PDA’s in corn and soybeans • NE Univ. of NE for spatial info on invasive weeds • 4-H; help in mapping nursery and high hazard sites. • Cactoblastis cactorum survey in southern states • Master Gardeners in NJ

  21. Vision for the Future • Continue to make our mission known • Fine tune the system • Use of offshore information • Continue to find new methods for doing • work • Form alliances/partnerships with others • Continue to partner and expand the NPDN • Need to have more eyes and ears

  22. Working Together • To increase earlier detection of plant pests • To increase communication • To help prevent bio-terrorist events • To increase infrastructure for identification of pests • To increase collaboration

  23. How we fit together? • NPDN • Training • Outreach materials • Emergency Response • State CAPS committees • Eyes and ears for pest detection • Listen to what each has to offer • Compare notes on who are our cooperators and collaborators • Figure out our connections to IPM Centers

  24. Where to go next? • Huge and complex question!! • Have to realize we have different missions • Share information; share expertise • Know what you do well; market it • Always keep looking for new ways to branch out.

  25. Questions? Comments? Ideas?
