Pest and Pesticide Management

Fall Armyworm

Fall Armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) is an insect pest that can feed on more than 80 crop species. If not managed, it can cause  significant yield reduction of major cultivated cereals such as maize, rice, sorghum, as well as legumes, vegetable crops and cotton.

It is native to the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas and has in recent years become established in many countries across Africa.
