Sudan, The new frontier in the fight against Tuta absoluta

Reports from Sudan confirmed the identification of Tuta absoluta presence in green houses close to the capital Khartoum.

The Agricultural research Centre who made the initial identification has also carried out pheromone trapping exercise to further confirm the identity of the pest. The expansion of Tuta absoluta to Egypt and Sudan will open the door for further expansion along the east African coast. No official announcement has been made yet although it understood that the Ministry of Agriculture is in the process of drafting a strategy to manage this new challenging pest.
