Sustainable management of the Fall Armyworm in Africa
A framework for partnership
(Version 2nd March 2018)
The Fall Armyworm (FAW) has invaded and quickly spread across Africa, infesting millions of
hectares of smallholder maize, millet, and sorghum fields. FAW can cause significant yield
losses if not well managed or in the absence of natural biological control. The direct actions
that can be taken to manage FAW are...
