Fall Armyworm Biopesticide Options

Dataset used to produce the paper Assessment of potential biopesticide options for managing fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) in Africa

This paper summarizes assessments of the registered pesticides and biopesticides for 30 countries, 11 in fall armyworm's (FAW)'s native range and 19 in Africa. The report identifies biopesticide active ingredients (AI) which are registered for use against FAW and provides an assessment of how appropriate these will be for use by smallholder farmers in Africa. For each biopesticide AI identified, detailed profiles were developed which covered the efficacy of the AI against FAW; the human health and environmental hazards associated with the AI; the agronomic sustainability of the AI; and whether or not the AI is practical for smallholder farmers to use.
