Fall Army Worm Invasion in Kenya

The current Fall Army Worm infestation in some parts of the country and the potential countrywide outbreak, has led Syngenta East Africa to introduce VOLIAM TARGO ®063 and MATCH® 50EC as an ideal solution. The pest is a caterpillar that attacks and devours all food crops e.g Maize, with an alarming speed. The new pest has had devastating effects in some African countries including Zambia, DRC, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. These two products meet the critical considerations in a customer’s mind when fighting the Fall Army Worm infestation such as the spectrum of activity, quick action that stops further damage to the crop, the right product pack size and eventually the cost effectiveness of the product.
