Report of Fall Armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda From Bundelkhand Region of Uttar Pradesh
Keywords:Spodoptera frugiperda, Banda, Bundelkhand Region, Damage, Incidence, Finger Millet, Groundnut, Maize, Uttar Pradesh
The fall armyworm (FAW) Spodoptera frugiperda (J E Smith) is spreading throughout maize growing tracts of India. In the Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh this pest was noticed in Banda district during 2020. The maize crop was badly affected in the region and even harvesting could not be possible because of the heavy toll caused by the FAW larvae in production of cobs. Finger millet and groundnut were other crops which were severely affected.
