An army worms infestation is affecting South Africa’s crops.

We find out more with Dr Marinda Visser of Grain SA and look at some lessons from Japanese agriculture with Professor Idowu Oladele from North West University in South Africa and Professor Koichi Ikegami from Kinki University in Japan.

Of course there’s our science news and an update on our ranking in the online fantasy science sports league March Mammal Madness 2017.

The Science Inside is presented by Elna Sch├╝tz and DJ Keyez. Our production team is Matthew Law, Gabriel Chemhuru and Michael Venter, with technical production by Kutlwano Serame.
