Fawligen registers in Kenya

March 3, 2021

UPL and AgBiTech announced the formal registration of Fawligen, a biological control for Fall Armyworm in Kenya. Fawligen is manufactured by the global leader and innovator in biological pest control, AgBiTech and will be distributed in multiple countries in Sub-Saharan Africa by UPL.

Fawligen is an IRAC Group 31 mode of action (host-specific occluded pathogenic viruses) biological insecticide and contains a nucleopolyhedrovirus specific to the Fall Armyworm (FAW) pest. It underwent multiple evaluations and regulatory trials between 2018 and 2020 with organizations such as CABI and KALRO in Kenya before it was submitted for registration to regulatory authorities.

Commenting on the registration, Mr. Shanni Srivastava, UPL Sub region Head for East Africa and Middle East said, 'Fawligen is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, biological product for FAW control and UPL is thrilled to have it as part of our portfolio to offer to farmers in Kenya for managing FAW safely.

Dr. Shachi Gurumayum, Head of Africa and South Asia for AgBiTech, added, 'We are excited to start 2021 with the registration of Fawligen in Kenya. It is a proven technology that has been helping farmers manage FAW in countries like Brazil, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Zambia and more. We intend to bring it to Kenyan farmers in the upcoming season.'
