Four states of Paraguay reported the attack of Helicoverpa armigera according to the National Quality and Vegetal and Seed Protection Service (SENAVE). The plague invaded Canindeyú, Itapúa, Alto Paraná and San Pedro in the moment the country launched the planting of 2013/14 soybean harvest, endangering  the country to repeat last season’s success.
"We are already monitoring the field to determine the presence of the plague. We are guiding handling for small producers and other forms of control for extensive crops because they are another type of producers"said agronomist Ernesto Galliani, director of SENAVE’s Plant Protection to the Diario ABC Color. According to him, the Protection Laboratory found larvae and adult specimens.
According to this newspaper, it is speculated that in Paraguay the Helicovera armigera has entered the country through Brazilian borders. In order to prevent it to spread, SENAVE developed a plan for monitoring and early detecting the plague to enable handling, as well as training sessions for producers and technicians.
