Greg Sword, Ph.D., Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Entomology professor, has received $499,000 to determine fall armyworm behaviors and genomic traits that could aid in controlling the agricultural pests. The research sprung from studies by Texas A&M University graduate student Ashley Tessnow, who will work on the new project as a postdoctoral …

Two potential cover crops such as cowpea and sunnhemp have the potential to reduce the larval population of #fallarmyworm by lengthening the developmental time and increasing larval mortality. The other cover crops such as either corn or sorghum-sudangrass are two more preferred crops for the fall armyworm. Hence there is a potential to design a …

Host plant resistance (HPR) provides a foundation of IPM for safe and efficient management of FAW. In this African and Asian agriculture for 2021 focus, options for managing fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) in maize and sorghum are discussed by experts in the field Richard E. Goodman and Joseph E. Huesing https://www.openaccessgovernment.org/2021-african-and-asian-agriculture/98500/

Abstract: Spodoptera frugiperda (Smith) is the main maize pest in America and was recently detected as an invasive pest in some countries in Asia and Africa. Among its natural enemies presented in Mexico, Trichogramma pretiosum Riley is the only egg parasitoid used in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs regardless of its effectiveness. A search for …

Research Notes
The CRISPR/Cas9 system is an efficient genome editing method that can be used in functional genomics research. The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, is a serious agricultural pest that has spread over most of the world. However, very little information is available on functional genomics for this insect. We performed CRISPR/Cas9-mediated site-specific mutagenesis of three target genes: two …

Research Notes
The cell lines derived from the fall armyworm (FAW), Spodoptera frugiperda, have been widely used for production of recombinant proteins for applications in both basic research and applications in medicine and agriculture. Promoters from the nucleopolyhedrovirus (NPV) are commonly used in these expression systems. These promoters have some limitations, which may be overcome by using promoters …

The aim of this study was to evaluate the biological effectiveness of insecticides chlorpyrifos, emamectin benzoate, spinoteram, novaluron, deltamethrin and zeta-cypermethrin against Spodoptera frugiperda in Cocula, Guerrero. The results showed that the insecticides at the evaluated doses represented 45 to 56% reduction in damage, and in the number of larvae from 86 to 95% in …
