The African armyworm season has ended in the southern outbreak region and no outbreaks were reported in either southern or the central outbreak region during May (DLCO-EA, IRLCO-CSA).
As part of its extended efforts, OFDA/PSPM continued developing and improving African armyworm (AAW) information in both the SOR and COR. In addition to both printable and web-based maps that OFDAâ€™s in-house GIU-Mapping Center developed for the AAW COR, the unit has also developed a similar map for the AAW SOR (click on the below link to see the map): http://usaid.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Viewer/index.html?appid=9d2ab2f918284595819836d1f16a526f
FORECAST FOR THE NEXT 6 WEEKS:
AAW will likely appear in Kenya and perhaps southern Ethiopia during the forecast period. AAW coordinators and CBAMFEW and non-CBAMFEW forecasters are advised to remain vigilant and report trap catches to concerned authorities on time for interventions (DLCO-EA, IRLCO-CSA, OFDA/AELGA).
