Research Notes
Taking advantage of the recent publication from our group applying network analyses, I would like to present a last year publication in the Pest Management Science journal. We evaluated differential expression in the transcriptome of both midgut and fat body larval tissues of the two strains of the FAW reared on either DIMBOA‐enriched artificial diet …

This publication in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) – Gene Regulatory Mechanisms is part of Natália Murad’s PhD in Universidade Estadual de Campinas, in Brazil, under mine and Dr. Marcelo Brandão’s supervision. A dataset of gene expression from FAW was used to understand how gene regulation is related to larval host plant preference. Transcriptomic data …

Elizabeth Kells Rowan at the University of Penn State has recently published a dataset from field and laboratory trials which looks at the impact of zinc fertiliser on fall armyworm in Corn (see below link). This dataset caught my eye as there is an ongoing debate in the UK and USA about whether or not …

Research Notes
The migration of the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) is of topical interest because of its recent introduction and rapid dissemination throughout the Eastern Hemisphere. This study compares fall armyworm from island and mainland locations in Ecuador to estimate migration behavior. The Galápagos Islands is a province of Ecuador whose mainland coast lies approximately 1000 km …

Research Notes
The fall armyworm (FAW) Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) has become a global devastating pest because of its broad dispersal capacity and the high crop damages. At present, research on FAW infestations of crops in the DR Congo remains undocumented. Here, FAW infestations in two agro-ecological zones (Kabare and Ruzizi Plain) were compared in South-Kivu Province. Surveys …

Research Notes
Spodoptera frugiperda is a major worldwide migratory agricultural pest, ranking first in the list of crop pests and diseases of China. It invaded China in 2019 and was first discovered in Liaoning Province in 2020. A large number of studies have shown that reduced target sensitivity is the main mechanism of the insect pest’s high-level …

Hi All, I am CABI’s newly appointed Research Champion, specialising in the biology, scouting, monitoring and surveillance of fall armyworm. Following a pilot project where we tested different technologies for monitoring FAW in realtime, I wanted to ask how the different research groups present here are approaching the challenge of population monitoring/ modelling. This seems …

As part of a joint collaboration between Rothamsted Research, ICIPE and our commercial partners Trapview and Cosmonio we recently reviewed three different technologies for real-time monitoring of fall armyworm in Kenya. These were: Digital pheromone traps Offline mobile phone app Vertical looking radar The results and data are available in the project technical report. In …

Maize (Zea mays; Poaceae) is an important stable food (17%) and fodder crop (61%) next to rice and wheat. To study the seasonal variations and spatial distributions of fall armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) on maize in Cauvery Delta Zone, random survey was made during 2019 -2020 at kharif and rabi seasons at six …
