Japan: Current Impact of Fall Armyworm Limited

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF) confirmed Japan’s first outbreak of Spodoptera frugiperda, or Fall Armyworm (FAW). Silage corn has been the primary crop affected by FAW, but corn for grain, sweet corn, sorghum, rice, sugarcane, and sweet potatoes are also at risk. MAFF has announced support payments to offset costs associated with pesticide application, fermentation accelerants, substitute feed purchases, and additional storage for imported feed. FAS/Tokyo does not expect a significant increase in demand for corn for feed from the United States.
