The Department of Agriculture (DOA) of Thailand has received a report which confirmed that Fall Army Worm (Spodoptera Frugiperda) was positively identified from the samples collected from maize plantation in a few sub districts of Kanchanaburi and Tak Provinces, along the border of Myanmar. The samples of Fall Army Worm were collected on Friday 14 December 2018 and morphologically identified by entomologists from the DOA. As a consequence, the DOA is now conducting the official control to minimize the spread of this pest in many areas.
