Locusts destroy wheat fields in Panjgur

Locust swarms on Wednesday destroyed wheat fields in Balgtar and Gwarkro regions of Balochistan as relief teams struggle to contain the scourge with insecticides.

Ministry of Agriculture and Plant Protection officials are busy spraying the fields with insecticides and pesticides.

The difficult terrain is proving to be a great obstacle for relief teams trying to gain access to the place of attack.

Crops standing on hundreds of acres were destroyed by the swarms of locusts in several villages. The farmers have blamed the Agriculture Department for not taking concrete steps to save their crops from the attack of locusts.
