Armyworms to blight Chinese crops

Second-generation armyworms ( Spodoptera spp) will affect some 1.7 million ha of crops across China this year, but egg numbers are down on last year in most regions, reports the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture's plant disease and pest forecasting office. Southern Shandong, central and western Henan, south-eastern Inner Mongolia and central Jilin provinces that have plentiful rainfall will likely see larger infestations of the pest.The main migratory pest areas of Shanxi, Hebei, Inner Mongolia, Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces have lower numbers of second-generation armyworm eggs and larvae than in previous years, the report notes. Numbers have halved in some areas.
