A group of environmentalists have charged that the threat of infestation by the  Army Worm has not been contained to the degree that is being communicated by the department of Agriculture.

The group pointed out that though the threat has diminished somewhat; the rate of breeding could cause a significant rise in the population by May and again in  November.

The department of agriculture held a meeting to discuss the matter yesterday where it was decided to grow maize within the first two weeks of May for Yala Season.

However, environmentalist, Thilak Kandegama stated that the threat of further spread of the pest could increase more severely next time around.
