The desert locust Schistocerca gregaria (Forskål) can infest an area from Mauritania to India and roughly from the Mediterranean to the Equator. Plagues with many swarms of adults and very many bands of hoppers are separated in time by recessions, when most of the locusts are scattered and confined to the 16 million square kilometre arid central by: 4.

The desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) is a species of locust, a periodically swarming short-horned grasshopper in the family are found mainly in Africa, through Arabia, West Asia and extending into parts of South Asia. During population surge years, they Family: Acrididae. The desert locust is potentially the most dangerous of the locust pests because of the ability of swarms to fly rapidly across great distances. It has two to five generations per year. The migratory locust (Locusta migratoria) is the most widespread locust species, and the only species in the genus Locusta.

FAO Desert Locust Survey & Control Form As a means to improve the collection of field data which is required for decision making, planning, situation analysis and forecasting, FAO in collaboration with affected countries has designed a simple form that can be used during survey and control operations.

The Desert Locust (Schistocerca gregaria) is the most destructive migratory pest in the response to environmental stimuli, dense and highly mobile Desert Locust swarms can form.

They are ravenous eaters who consume their own weight per day, targeting food crops and forage. Desert Locust Guidelines for use by national and international organisations and institutions involved in Desert Locust survey and control.

These Guidelines are resource documents containing information on best practice for their detection, prediction and control. This report of the work of the Desert Locust Survey and the Desert Locust Control organization against Schistocerca gregaria (Forsk.) in East Africa and the Middle East between 1st January and 30th June [cf.

R.A.E., A 45 73] includes a section on the course of the outbreaks and the organization of control measures by J. Hewitt (pp. Preventive control of the desert locust S. gregaria depends on monitoring an immense territory (~ million km 2 of outbreak areas).

In this context, remote sensing is instrumental in detecting potential areas of incipient outbreaks and guiding the ground survey teams toward those areas. In accordance with a recommendation made at its last session, the FAO Commission for Control the Desert Locust in the Central Region organized a regional training course on Desert Locust survey.

The course venue and time were chosen based on where and when locusts were present and breeding. The course was designed to be practical and field. In the late eighties large-scale control operations were carried out to control a major desert locust upsurge in Africa. For the first time since the banning of organochlorine pesticides these operations relied mainly on non-persistent pesticides such as organophosphates and pyrethroids.

The amount of pesticides sprayed and the area covered were probably the highest in the history of locust. Locust survey and control is an accepted task for Argentine plant protection officers who receive an adequate allocation of resources to monitor and control small and medium populations, and can access additional funds to find and quickly control larger populations in the few years when breeding conditions are particularly favourable (Hunter and Cosenzo, ).Cited by: Preventive control and Desert Locust plagues.

Abstract Book 1. FAO, FAO Panel of Experts on the long-term policy of Desert Locust control, there is also a tendency to focus on the. The Department of Plant Protection (DPP), Ministry of National Food Security and Research (MFSR) is the lead institution tasked with monitoring and managing the desert locust threat in started operations to respond to the desert locust threat in Februarywith support from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and immediately mobilized ground.

FAO is thus looking for solutions to improve the Desert Locust monitoring, early warning and rapid control system and to reduce the costs of survey and control. The operational use of drones in nearly 20 frontline countries affected by the Desert Locust is.

To control locust swarms, vulnerable countries use remote sensing technology and ground surveys to identify and eliminate locust breeding areas. Now, some experts think drone technology could provide survey and control teams with an inexpensive and efficient method of.
