The new International Workshop on Tuta absoluta will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia during 26-28th November 2013. The aim is to explore the potential expansion of the pest in Eastern African countries as well as drawing from the experience of the Middle Eastern and North African countries in managing The Tomato miner Tuta absoluta.


The Workshop is organised jointly by the Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research and the IPM Innovation Lab at Virginia Tech, USA. It aims increasing the awareness of the African participants of the new pest which is threatening to cause critical damage to the key food sources in the area. It also aims to provide a platform for the scientists from the neighbouring regions to share and update the experience of managing Tuta absoluta over the past two years.
