Fall Armyworm (FAW)
Intercroping maize with cowpea is one of the recommended cultural practices for FAW management. The cowpea provides conducive environment for the natural enemies. The intercrop also obstructs balooning larvae from reaching to the prefer host-maize. The larvae that lands in the cowpea plant starve and die.

The maize under moisture stress scorched few days after the application.
