WORKSHOP: Armyworm SARID workshop in Arusha

To coincide with the impending end of the SARID project, funded by the BBSRC and DFID, there was a workshop held in Arusha.

Presentations were given by Dr Rob Graham (Lancaster University), David Grzywacz (NRI, University of Greenwich) and Professor Kenneth Wilson (Lancaster University). Delegates included officials from the Tanzanian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Cooperatives, including Dr Francisca Katagira (Plant Health Services Section). Others present included Wilfred Mushobozi (EcoAgriConsult Ltd), who showed the delegates around the new DFID RIU-funded baculovirus production facility in Arusha, which is nearing completion, as well academic staff from Sokoine University of Agriculture (Profs Madoffe and Makundi), and armyworm specialists from Pest Control Services in Tengeru.
