NARO Urges Farmers to Rotate Pesticides to Defeat Armyworms

The National Agricultural Research Organization- NARO urged farmers to use different pesticides to destroy fall armyworms.

Winfred Aol Opio, an entomologist at NARO says that the worms become resistant to a single pesticide when used for two or more consecutive seasons in the same garden. 

She advised that farmers should rotate or inter-change chemicals after at least one season because it will reduce the rate of destruction of the armyworms.
