Abstract

Caterpillars of the African armyworm moth are a major pest in sub-Saharan Africa. Outbreaks are typically dealt with by widespread pesticide application which may have unintended effects on human or environmental health. So what are the prospects for biological controls? Focusing on their experience in developing a microbial biopesticide for African armyworms in Tanzania, KennethWilson, David Grzywacz and Wilfred Mushobozi discuss the problems
associated with developing sustainable biocontrol solutions for Africa.
