《中英對照讀新聞》Destructive pest could spread to all of China’s grain production in 12 months 毀滅性害蟲恐在12個月內蔓延到中國所有糧食產區

The devastating armyworm pest has already spread to more than 8,500 hectares of China’s grain production and could soon affect the country’s entire crop, a new US government report said.

毀滅性的行軍蟲已散布到中國逾8500公頃的糧食產區,可能不久就會衝擊該國整個作物收成,美國政府一份新報告指出。

The voracious, inch-long fall armyworm, the larval form of the armyworm moth, can breed rapidly, spread great distances and is hugely difficult to eradicate.

狼吞虎嚥、1吋長的秋行軍蟲,是斜紋夜蛾的幼蟲,可快速繁殖、長距離擴散,且極難根絕。

It has a large impact on a wide range of crops, including important Chinese staples such as rice, soybeans and corn. According to the US report, it may have already spread to a range of southern Chinese provinces including Yunnan, Guangxi, Guangdong, Guizhou, Hunan and Hainan.

牠對廣泛作物產生重大衝擊,包括重要的中國主食,比如稻米、大豆與玉米等。根據這份美國報告,該害蟲恐已蔓延到中國南部省分,包括雲南、廣西、廣東、貴州、湖南與海南。

The new pest comes as the Chinese government faces a number of daunting agricultural challenges. Every province in the country has now been affected by African swine fever virus, which is devastating the pork industry.

這種新害蟲出現在中國政府正面臨若干令人畏怯的農業挑戰之際。中國每個省分現在遭到非洲豬瘟病毒衝擊,重創豬肉產業。
