Examination on to control fall army worm
The Public Maize Exploration Program situated in Rampur of Chitwan has set out on embraced an examination for the avoidance and control of fall army worm – a kind of agrarian irritation which has represented a genuine danger to their grain yields.
The horticulture researchers and specialists have been never going to budge on doing the exploration to control the irritation which has been irregularly broken out the nation over. The analysts are gathering hatchlings of the army worm for research.
Multitudes of the fall army worm which entered Nepal in the earlier years have obliterated corn crops the nation over.

“Gathering its eggs would thusly be instrumental in forestalling the spread of the worm”, he stated, including that it would diminish the harms and lessen the utilization of synthetic pesticide”.
There are 150-200 eggs on the outside of the leaf so culling the leaves with hatchlings and its appropriate administration can keep the worm from exacting a lot of harm, Bhandari further clarified.

The Public Maize Exploration Program was started in Rampur in 1962. As a component of the program, innovative work of different types of maize has been embraced in the territory extending more than 65 bighas of land.
Public Maize Exploration Program facilitator Dr Keshab Babu Koirala said different irritations have been making harms the corn crops during its creation and capacity. “Distinctive 55 kinds of worms deliver harm to the maize. We are embraced exploration to forestall the interruption of vermin”, he stated, including the examination has thought of some sure discoveries
