HOW PUSH-PULL WORKS AGAINST Fall Armyworm?
We wonder that, 3 years ago. Last week the paper with the findings went out to the public. We are glad to publish our results in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, explaining how the plant volatiles (Chemical Ecology) of companion crops mitigates Spodoptera frugiperda damage in maize crops. A paper worth to be read in Africa and all over the world, with implications for reduction of pesticides use and increase of Agroecological practices. A great collaboration between ICIPE and the University of Keele, funded by BBSRC of UK. Please find it here:
