This guide puts emphasis on management of FAW for maize as the preferred host plant of FAW. However FAW can feed on over 80 plants. Most of the information in this guide can be adapted for other crops. The guide does not provide detailed information on maize cultivation, which will vary depending on the speci c context. Existing FFS curricula on maize provide a basis which is available to FFS trainers and facilitators, and which re ects ndings from national research and farmers innovations that are giving good results in speci c contexts. This guide focuses on providing resource material and ideas on how to integrate FAW into FFS training.
