Fall armyworm infestation and its impact in most parts of Africa

Year: 2017
Descriptors: Spodoptera frugiperda
Descriptors: Maize
Descriptors: Insect control
Abstract: The impact of the fall armyworm infestation first witnessed in southern Africa in 2016 is fast being felt in other maize growing areas in sub-Saharan Africa, putting the food security of over 200 million people whose livelihoods depend on maize at risk. More than 300,000 hectares of maize are already damaged in Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe and throughout eastern Africa. Scientists and stakeholders in Africa and internationally are seeking sustainable solutions to help farmers manage and control the fall armyworm. An integrated pest management approach involving several institutions is being established to provide safe and cost-effective solutions for millions of smallholders across the region.
