Hello fellows, i am glad to be part of this noble community, i have a new maize farm but concerned with how to prevent the emergence of fall army worm on it. Can any one help me with how to go about it. Thank you
Application of fertilizer at 100kg/acre of NPK and 50kg/acre urea
Farm sanitation shd be adhered to
Apply cymethoate super 35mls per knapsack at two weeks of sowing and increase to 40mls at 4 weeks
Regular monitoring and scouting are essential.
45mls at 4 weeks old. Continue at three weeks interval until tasselling
Thank you very much Mr Afrane fir this timely information. However, i also learnt Neemazal was the only pesticides proven effective among all goverment procured pesticides last year. I learnt it does nt only kill da pest but kills it eggs to to stop reproduction of it. Thank you.
