Several FAW workshops and discussions have been done in the past months to help strengthen FAW research, control and collaboration world wide. Several compatible and less harmful approach have been taken in IPM to manage FAW in a more sustainable way. One of these IPM approach is biological control. Biological control works are usually impeded …

Trap cropping is a promising, environmentally sound approach to manage pests in agricultural and forest systems through exploiting insect preferences for certain host plants. In a wide range of cropping systems, trap cropping greatly reduces damage, disease and insecticide use on the main crops, and thus increases the yield of the main crop. In a …

Research says compared with maize monocropping, intercropping with legumes, Phaseolus vulgaris L. var. Roscoco can reduce the larval population by enhancing mortality rate. Underlying mechanisms are antixenosis and antibiosis effects along with trichome-based plant defence mechanisms. In the push-pull system, planting Silverleaf desmodium, Desmodium uncinatum as intercrop “push crop” can repel FAW moth because of …
