29 August 2018. Webinar: Technologies and techniques for combating Fall Armyworm

Fall Armyworm (FAW) is an invasive and damaging pest endemic to the Americas that is spreading across Africa, particularly targeting maize, a vital staple crop. FAW will have long-term effects on crop yields, food supplies, livelihoods, trade, and threaten the resilience of chronically vulnerable populations. The impact of FAW highlights a fundamental challenge smallholder farmers face—limited access to information, tools, technologies and management practices—and the need for systems that effectively respond to emerging transboundary threats.


Access Agriculture farmer-to-farmer training videos on fall armyworms within your network.

Under each video screen, you can see the language options (for the moment we have English, French and Kiswahili) in which you can play and download each video. The download options are: Video (mp4), Audio (mp3), mobile (video format 3gp) as well as a one page fact sheet that contains contact details of FAO expert in case people want to get in touch for more info.
