The reference of the paper that I mentioned in my comment is Sharma et al. (2018).BIO-RATIONAL MANAGEMENT OF ARMYWORM (MYTHIMNA SEPARATA) (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE) IN CHITWAN CONDITION OF NEPAL. J. Inst. Agric. Anim. Sci. 35: 143-150. I added the reference if you are interested to read the research.

I am not an expert in the field but a research conducted in Nepal showed Spinosad 45% (0.25ml/ lit of water) significantly reduce the damage (lowest up to 0.9%). Spinosad is a natural insecticide extracted from soil bacteria unlike synthesized chemical and it is environmentally friendly. Spinosad is approved by US EPA since 1997.
