Weekly Introduction:
Locust Update

The report from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations on the locust situation in western Africa was last updated on March 16 (http://www.fao.org/NEWS/GLOBAL/locusts/Locuhome.htm). While some swarms continue in the region, looking toward this spring, the FAO expects that Northwest Africa will be invaded this spring due to failed winter rains and breeding in Mauritania.
