Mozambique: Mozambique Fall Armyworm

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In early 2017, field samples were collected confirming the existence of fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) in Mozambique. This pest is now well established and distributed in all confirmed sites. The infestation and damage levels are high in the major areas sampled, affecting the normal growth of corn plants. It is evident that fall armyworm will have an impact on food security in Mozambique if controlling measures are not put in place promptly. The government of Mozambique is seeking $2.6 million in funding to contain the fall armyworm and secure farmers’ crop production.
