Agriculture authorities in Malawi are putting in place measures to detect and control a possible recurring outbreak of fall army worms in the forthcoming growing season.

The 2016/2017 growing season saw several parts of the country being affected by the pest which are resistant to normal pesticides for similar pests.

Recent international news reports are indicating that Zambia has detected another hit of the pests in the forthcoming agriculture season.

Last year, before hitting Malawi, the pests started with Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique prompting agriculture experts from the three countries and Malawi to hold several meeting strategising on how to eradicate them.

The worms are feared to be a drawback in food security which has been making a positive impact on the local economy.

Speaking to Capital FM, Spokesperson in the Ministry of Agriculture Osborne Tsoka says they are basing their preparedness on the country’s pest experience from the previous growing season.

    How is it that just anybody can create a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture more than an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, right here. But do you seriously think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not genuinely say anything?
