“Will be sharing more on the next move. However, based on this preliminary meeting, I can say without any iota of doubt that, the panecia to the ever annoying fruitfly manace on our Mango and other assorted fruits ( especially water melon, tomatoes, and guavas), is available at ICIPE and will be landing in Kitui County very, very soon”, Dr Temi added.
