Effective and sustainable Fall Army Worm (FAW) management requires action. Let's ACT NOW!!
Apart from weather variability, the occurrence of pests and diseases is one of the main reasons for yield loss in farm business. When conditions are humid, diseases can easily develop, while the direction of migratory pests is among other things controlled by wind direction and rainfall patterns.
Let’s work together as we help farmers fight FAW on their fields.
🐛Apply control measures when two (2) FAW caterpillars are seen or when two (2) or more plants are affected
🐛Handpick and destroy egg masses and caterpillars
🐛Apply recommended organic products e.g. Maltodextrin, Ethyl palmitate, Neem-based products, etc
🐛Apply recommended microbial insecticides eg. Bacillus thuringiensis
🐛Rotate recommended insecticides with different modes of action for resistance management
🐛During spraying, target the caterpillar in the whorl (the middle point of the plant)
🐛Spray early in the morning (before 9:00 am) and/or after 4:00pm
