Tuta absoluta, New and serious threat to food production in Ethiopia

Recent reports from Sudan, has indicated that Tuta absoluta is extending its damage to the Potato Tuber. This development in the host selection behaviour by Tuta absoluta can be a potential disaster to small farmers  in the East Africa  whose livelihood rely on horticultural production  and particularly those  in regions of Ethiopia close to Sudan

Key Potato production areas in Sudan and Ethiopia are close to each other along the Blue Nile and its tributaries. The recent expansion of the Tuta absoluta in the areas south of Wadi Medni in Sudan, is pausing a serious risk across the board to the potato production areas around the upper Blue Nile in Ethiopia.
