For the successful #fallarmyworm management in maize crop, various intervention approaches should be adopted in integrated ways. Adopting a single pest management approach may not be able to keep the pest below the economic threshold level. Hence the integration of various approaches at a time or on a regular basis is suggested for the successful …

Habitat manipulation in the form of cover crops, intercrops, maintaining flower strips in the main field increases the activity and ‘fitness’ of pest natural enemies and thereby minimize pest pressure in agriculture (natural enemies hypothesis). In another side, the probability of finding a host in diversified crops is reduced in the diversified field (resource concentration). …

Cultural method of pest control make a less favourable environment to the pest and make a more favourable for their natural enemies. This method is the most widely adopted approaches in integrated pest management. As a part of cultural control, spraying sugar solution (10-20%) increases the population of certain parasitoids such as Campoletis flavicincta (Hymenoptera:Ichneumonidae), …

Cultural methods are some of the most widely adopted approaches in integrated pest management in general and FAW in a particular. This technique has tremendous potential to keep the pest below the economic damage threshold. Regional cooperation for knowledge-sharing and research collaborations, along with increased research and policy interventions can favour sustainable pest management. Let’s …

Push-pull technology is widely adopted technology for the maize stem borer management in Eastern Africa. This can help to manipulate the abundance and distribution of stem borer and their natural enemies by the behaviour-modify stimuli. This technology has recently been adapted for the fall armyworm management in drier areas of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. In …
