   Recently, Tang Huajun, member of the Party Leadership Group of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and Dean of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, visited the Yunnan Xundian Field Observation and Experimental Base of the Institute of Plant Protection to investigate the results and application effects of major special projects for the prevention and control of Spodoptera frugiperda. Wu Kongming, deputy secretary and vice president of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and Zhu Youyong, chairman of the Yunnan Science and Technology Association and honorary president of Yunnan Agricultural University, participated in the investigation.
  Tang Huajun and his entourage inspected the scientific research progress in the prevention and control of Spodoptera exigua in cross-border migration, and listened to the introduction of the research progress of migration rules, radar monitoring, emergency prevention and control and continuous management in the field, and fully affirmed the control of Spodoptera extinus in the field Control the achievements of scientific and technological innovation and the cultivation of new varieties of genetically modified organisms. Tang Huajun emphasized that the Institute of Plant Protection will continue to strengthen scientific research on the prevention and control of Spodoptera frugiperda and the cultivation of results to provide strong scientific and technological support for ensuring national food security.
  Yunnan Xundian Field Observation and Experiment Base of Plant Protection Institute is located in Xundian Hui and Yi Autonomous County of Yunnan Province. It cultivates corn and wheat twice a year, intercropping rice and cash crops, similar to southern my country, and has typical planting patterns. . Preliminary studies have shown that the base is at the key path node for the north-south migration of Spodoptera litura. In recent years, the Plant Protection Institute has continuously improved the construction of the base and organized the development of individual and integrated prevention and control technologies such as insect radar monitoring, high-altitude observation lamp traps, sex and food attractant traps, the effectiveness of modern biological breeding, emergency and sustainable prevention and control technologies, etc. The demonstration of scientific research applications has strongly supported the source control and integrated control of Spodoptera frugiperda in my country.

Responsible comrades and experts from the Office of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, the Science and Technology Administration, the Institute of Plant Protection, as well as the Yunnan Provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the Yunnan Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and Xundian County participated in the event.
