Description: Thank you, Dave (Grimble). Let me begin by saying that it is particularly fitting that this group meet at this point in time. First, it a fair guess that in the 1984 field season more forest acreage will be treated with microbial insecticides than in any previous year. Second, the research effort devoted to all phases of microbial insecticide formulation and application appear to have arrived at a unique stage when recent R&D is finding ready application -- I am thinking of B.t. -- current R&D, particularly on viruses, fungi, and parasites, is well along in development, and the possibility of genetically tailored biological insecticides is far more than a gleam in a microbiologist's eye. Momentum -- and that's what this group has -- incites achievement.
