In different parts of Punjab and Sindh, locusts have once again invaded and severely damaged wheat and other ready crops.




In Ganganagar and Mianwali Qureshi areas of Rahim Yar Khan in southern Punjab, locusts have attacked and severely damaged standing crops.

According to the farmers' union, locusts have also damaged sugarcane crops and mango orchards, while the agriculture department says spraying is underway in the affected areas.
Locusts have also attacked Rajanpur and air and ground spraying is being carried out to eradicate them.

On the other hand, locust infestation in Larkana, Naudero, Ratodero and Dokri in Sindh has also damaged wheat and other ready crops.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has been reminded by Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah not to spray in the province.

The Sindh Chief Minister has written a letter to the Prime Minister yesterday saying that locusts could launch a major attack on crops after May 15. He had requested for spraying in the province on March 6 but despite assurances, no cooperation was given.
Murad Ali Shah says that if the crops are not sprayed soon, the crops will be severely damaged, while experts say that this time the locust attack will be bigger than last year, so the federal government is serious about the locust heart issue. Demonstrate


It may be recalled that last year, locusts had severely damaged crops across the country and a large number of farmers had suffered financial losses.
