first_img Share Plant Protection Officer, Ryan Anselm has revealed that efforts are currently being made to manage fruit flies on the island. Anselm explained that there has been a decrease in fruit production which is caused by fruit flies, hence the need for this to be addressed with urgency.“Farmers have been experiencing significant decreases in fruit production so the strategy is to maintain the fruit sector for both the local and the export market. Fruit Flies and Mango Seed Weevils have negatively impacted our ability to export fruits. [Our] strategy is to maintain the levels of fruit export by managing the Fruit Fly population”’.Part of the efforts currently being undertaken to deal with this issue is the assistance of a Suriname expert who will visit farms with a view to educating farmers on fruit flies.Alies Van Saeurs–Muller, Head of the Carambola Fruit Fly Programme in Suriname, is part of a two-member delegation that will be visiting farms, meeting with extension officers and the Plant Protection and Quarantine Unit this week.“The message we’re bringing has to do with recognising fruit flies and [educating persons on] what they could do to manage the Fruit Fly problem. There are quite a number of methods that persons could apply in the field, not only the destruction of fruit flies by destroying affected fruit but also biological control, trapping, bait spraying etc.”According to Muller, if the larvae of the fruit flies are not destroyed, they could re-emerge and infect other fruits.“Everybody can do it…Everybody who has fruit trees in their own homes and finds larvae in the fruit can destroy them. If the larvae are left on the ground, they will penetrate the soils and re-emerge as flies and would infest fruits in your garden again or somebody else’s garden”.She also noted that citizens can assist by destroying fruits which are infected and this will go a long way in the management of fruit flies.Dominica is not the only Caribbean country which has been affected by fruit flies; Grenada has also been battling with the pest.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews Efforts being made to manage fruit flies by: – July 18, 2012 Share 31 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Sharing is caring!

first_img However, it has since been reported that Ter Stegen – widely viewed as one of the world’s elite goalkeepers – will pen a new and improved contract through to 2025. With a buyout clause of €180m, there is no great concern at the Camp Nou about the situation but they have had to push back their forecasts of an agreement. The 27-year-old has demonstrated he is one of football’s elite goalkeepers with a series of world-class performances for the Blaugrana, whom he joined from Borussia Mochengladbach in 2014 for €12m. Ter Stegen has been described as a tall, agile and consistent goalkeeper, with quick reflexes, good decision-making and excellent shot-stopping abilities; he is also strong in the air, good in one-on-one situations, and effective at communicating with his back-line courtesy of his strong personality. He initially was number two to Claudio Bravo at the club before establishing himself as first-choice, and is currently above summer arrival Neto in the pecking order.

A report from Diario Sport claims that officials from the Blues are aware of the qualities of the German shot-stopper and believe he would be a significant upgrade on current Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. However, the report adds that the West London club acknowledge this is as an ‘impossible dream’ so whilst they do hold an interest in Ter Stegen, neither the player nor the Catalan giants are in any mood to enter negotiations. Indeed, a separate report from El Mundo Deportivo claims Kepa could be offered in exchange as part of an approach from Stamford Bridge. The German goalkeeper’s current deal at the Camp Nou runs through until the summer of 2022, after he penned an extended contract in 2017 but contract talks have stalled amid the financial uncertainty following the coronavirus pandemic.Advertisement Read Also: Chinese football gets go-ahead after 2,000 negative virus testsEarlier this month, Chelsea transfer news also saw them linked to another La Liga custodian with reported interest in a move to land Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.However, it remains highly unlikely that either of the Spanish clubs will be willing to enter into negotiations for their prized assets.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
