1999 Integrated Pest Management Annual Report

Consortium for International Crop Protection

The University of Illinois is a member of the Consortium for International Crop Protection (CICP), which was established in 1979. Nearly 6,000 participants from more than 45 developing countries have benefited from this training.

CICP is composed of eleven major universities and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, all of which focus on major program efforts in IPM. On January 1, 1999, the headquarters office of CICP was moved to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The major emphasis of CICP has been to provide technical assistance and training, including numerous research collaboration initiatives. Its most valuable contributions to agricultural development and environmental safety have been educational programs (of one day to eight weeks) offered worldwide in English, Spanish, or French.

  • IPM and computer use in modeling crop–pest interactions, and for communications

  • Plant-resistant breeding

  • Weed management

  • Plant disease diagnosis

  • Entomology and biological control

CICP has produced extensive training materials for use in the developing world, including an IPM directory for the Internet and the monthly IPMnet News, which currently is used in 109 countries.

A major IPM World Textbook, coordinated by Edward Radcliffe, University of Minnesota, is available on the Internet ( and receives outstanding reviews. It is widely used both in the United States and abroad.

These international activities provide IPM experts and scientists from each member institution, including UIUC, an invaluable, stimulating opportunity to study and to educate abroad.
