I am retired university professor, entomologist, acting as a consultant in the field of Fall Armyworm I may cover many of the above mentioned points. I have just finished a book on Fall armyworm in Arabic in collaboration with one of FAO colleague. I have a very large database on FAW around 250 articles. I can support your goal as much as I can.

We always talk about mass production and rearing of egg parasitoids but nothing have peen pointed when the parasitoids are released in field and in which FAW larval stage. What is the cost for parasitoids augmentation for each hectare?

I am fully agreed what you mentioned Jingfei,the only widely used microbial is the Bacillus and the virus produced in UK and recently there is an agreement with UPL to formulate it as commercial product for Africa. The history of using viruses going back to the products produced commercially in Switzerland by Andermat BioVet against fruit moths. Metarhizium and Trichoderma are also commercialized long time ago in Malaysia and India. The need is growing really to test and formulate the local microorganisms on FAW.I hope the Global Action Plan ,launched by FAO can include such trials. The topic is really important and I hope another friends can share their thoughts.

Until now there is no real estimate for yield loss and all the figures published are expectations and forecast. CABI said if no control measure applied 17million tons of corn could be loss due to FAW damages in 12 countries. Such investigations must be made to avoid such estimate.

Thank you Aislinn for highlighted three of our dreams technologies in IPM. Many years ago such technologies were tested against Red Palm Weevil in the GCC but no one has been achieved a satisfied results. Digital pheromone traps and offline application are more easier to develop, however Radar and even drone can't detect early infestation as well as the last three larval instars.

I haven't read any research on rearing the parasitoid T.remus on Corcyra or even Ephestia however both of them are host for mass rearing of Trichogramma spp.It could be an excellent topic for future research.

The most efficient bacteria on fall armyworm is Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki or B.t.aizawai. Application timing is the crucial point to get successful control. The sensitive instars are the first, second and third larvae.
