Agriculture Emergency’ declared in Argentina due to locust outbreak
Argentina’s Agriculture Ministry has declared a state of agriculture emergency due to the new locust clouds reported in the country’s northern province.
Since May, the Argentine government has started providing financial assistance for farmers affected by locusts.
It is worth noting here that Argentina is one of the top global grain-producing nations. Commodity crops like corn, soybeans, and wheat form critical elements of human diets and livestock feed.
