  • Army Worm Vigilance

    The National Plant Protection Centre (NPPC), DoA, Semtokha, would like to request all stakeholders to heighten vigilance for any army worm like activity in the field. With the onset of spring, heavy rains followed by warm and dry weather conditions can greatly favour the development and outbreak of this pest organism.  Therefore, we would like to reiterate to you all to closely monitor the activity of this pest which will greatly help in initiating early management strategies and in taking the right decision at the right time. Please advocate frequent scouting in areas where crops have reached the susceptible stages like the seedling and/or the vegetative stage.

    Please contact NPPC immediately if the pest activity is observed in the field. Thanking you for your continued support and corporation.
