The Director-General of the Department of Agriculture, Dr WMW Wijekoon stated today that maize is not unsuitable for human consumption merely because the fall Armyworm is discovered on them.

Addressing a media conference held in Gannoruwa today, he said the species of the fall ArmyWorm found in maize does not destroy paddy cultivation.

He said a group of entomologists has already begun conducting research as to whether the fall Armyworm can cause any damage to paddy.
