Guidelines to control fall armyworms

The Tropical Pesticides Research Institute (TPRI) has released a new system of controlling fall armyworms.

The move comes after seven pesticides, developed by TPRI in 2017, proved to be ineffective against the type of worms, scientifically known as Spodoptera frugiperda.

The pesticides include Belt 480 Sc, Duduba 450 Ec, and Emamectin Benzoate, Mupacron 50Ec, Abamectin 5% and Lambda Cyhalothrin ‘karate’.



Seed meets good planting rains

Throughout Malawi farmers have been receiving good planting rains and seeds are coming to life nicely.

A new life of a good food crop starts with the seed. The past few months the Demeter Seed team have worked hard on getting Demeter seed of maize and legumes to over 900 agro outlets spread out accross Malawi. This has given the farmers access to the vital input they need for a successful food crop – Demeter seed.
