IMPORTANT NOTE : As a public deliverable this report has been also copied in the public part of the web site. ABSTRACT: This synthesis report covers the whole period of work package 1 (01 June 2006 – 31 September 2007). The main achievement of the work package 1 Basic Ecology and crop management during this period was to describe the state of the art in WCR ecology and management and to identify gaps of knowledge. Six task groups of 10-20 experts from several European countries and the USA met once or twice to discuss these topics. The European conditions with regard to the knowledge of the basic ecology of the Western Corn Rootworm (WCR) and the potential management options and control strategy are somewhat different from conditions in the USA and need to be adjusted to meet the specific conditions found in the overall more diverse maize cropping conditions in Europe. Although the European community may draw on rich information with regard to the biology of the pest, control measures so far implemented are to some extend based on deficient knowledge regarding the biology of the pest. Specifically, the lack of field experiments in most European member states, data on pest incidence / yield loss, and the lack of evaluation of alternatives with regard to pest control, including biological control options, chemical control options, or transgenic plants have to be considered before a comprehensive recommendation could be forwarded to plant protection services.
