    Yemen is the second country among the Arab countries whose crops were affected by the Fall Armyworm. It entered Yemen in July and December 2018 and caused significant economic losses to maize and sorghum small farmers. The FAW can adapt, subsistence, and feed on about 80 other crops such as cotton and some types of vegetables and fruits.

    Integrated pest management (IPM) steps have been implemented as a part of the FAO project Emergency preparedness and response to strengthen the capacities of NENA countries to mitigate the risk of Fall Armyworm (FAW) in the region TCP/RAB/3803. Four demonstration fields were designed in each Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Palestine to apply the biorational insecticides proposed by FAO in the inception workshop. At the early stages of the corn crop growth in the interval between 10-45 days after seeding, we suggested monitoring the fall armyworm by using pheromone traps. Once 3-5 males captured the first bioinsecticide Bacillus thuringiensis applied to the early plant stage (10-25 days after emergence) followed by Emamectin benzoate and Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) Lufenuron or any registered similar product. The same products plus Indoxacarb could be applied and interchanged are possible. Yield results were calculated and compared with the farmer fields following the conventional insecticides as a control. Following the 6 IPM steps farmers, facilitators, and technicians easily achieved very significant results when used with good agricultural practices by farmers. Avoiding using insecticides in the maturity stage was a substantial message to the farmers and also applying entomopathogenic fungi and natural enemies when available.
