The Food and Agriculture Orga­nisation (FAO) of the United Nations has said that breeding of desert locusts will continue in Nara and Cholistan, causing their numbers to increase with the possibility of hopper and adult groups forming.
In its new report titled ‘Desert Locust Bulletin’, it said that a second round of breeding could commence in August, leading to the formation of bands and eventually small swarms. Breeding might also extend to Thar­parkar desert with the onset of the monsoon rains, it said.
