The NaPROCLA team came together on 4th and 5th October for a whole team meeting to discuss progress so far on the project and plan out the next year or so.

The team received updates from Phil Stevenson (general background and overview), Sarah Arnold (ecology of field margin beneficial insects), Victoria Woolley (molecular identification of parasitoids), Yolice Tembo (field trials in Malawi), Janet Obanyi (field trials and molecular ID of aphid parasitoids in Kenya), and Baltazar Ndakidemi (field trials in Tanzania, including parasitoids of Maruca). The team were all highly impressed with the hard work of the project partners and the enormous progress that has already been made.
