Intensive control operations in India and Pakistan have significantly lowered locust infestations in both nations, said Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in its latest advisory.

As a result, the second generation of breeding is likely to be on a much smaller and more manageable scale.

Dr K L Gurjar, deputy director at Locust Warning Organization at Jodhpur said it is a “big relief” to the country which is facing threat of locust attacks since the past one and half year.
