Crop-eating Locust spread Havoc in the North Indian States. 2020 seems to be a disastrous year.

The year 2020 seems to be harboring clear signs of some of the most ominous things in human history. First a deadly global pandemic, then a cyclone and now a swarm of crop-eating locusts.

As predicted by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, many central Indian states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and UP have been battling the locust attack that reportedly emerged in East Africa.

Gujarat and Punjab have also been warned and have been asked to prepare for a locust attack. This has been reported as one of the worst locust attacks in 27 years and Pakistan had to declare a national emergency after the locusts hit the Punjab province destroying crops on a large scale.

On Monday, BR Karwa, project director, Agricultural Technology Management Agency said, “It is for the first time that drones and planes will be used to fight the locust attack in Rajasthan.”

The locusts have changed their attack strategy this season and are flying at great height against their basic nature, which is to fly in the low lying areas.
