Pest control in plants is an ever developing science and is something that the agricultural industry will never be able to live without. One of these methods that have proven to be quite successful, is the use of pheromones to control pest populations. In 9 October’s episode of #PlaasTV, Reshma Gayaram from AECI Plant Health Health gives some perspective on this.

We then follow up on our conversation with dr Goddy Prinsloo from the Agricultural Research Council about the false armyworm.
