    Also available in:

    Moroccan Locust (DMA) fledging, mating and egg-laying started in southern parts of Central Asia, where also swarm flights were reported, especially in areas near state borders. DMA hopper development continued in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russian Federation; in Georgia fledging already started by the end of May. Italian Locust (CIT) hatching and hopper development continued in Georgia and in Central Asian (CA) countries. Migratory Locust (LMI) hatching started in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. A dangerous situation was reported for CIT in Georgia while situation was classified as caution for both DMA and CIT in most countries. During the forecasted period, DMA breeding will continue and its lifecycle will come to the end while CIT and LMI hopper development will continue in Azerbaijan, Russian Federation and northern regions of Kazakhstan. CIT fledging will occur in other regions of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. In total, more than 665 000 hectares (ha) have been treated in CCA from the beginning of the 2021 campaign to the end of May, which is 11 percent higher compared to the same period in 2020.

DMA hopper development continued in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russian Federation. Italian Locust (CIT) hatching and hopper development continued in Georgia and in Central Asian (CA) countries. Migratory Locust (LMI) hatching started in Kazakhstan, Russian Federation and Uzbekistan. DMA swarm flights including across borders were reported in the southern part of CA. The situation with DMA was critical in Tajikistan, while it was classified as caution for both DMA and CIT in most other countries. During the forecast period, DMA breeding will continue and its lifecycle will come to the end while CIT hopper development will continue in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russian Federation and northern regions of Kazakhstan. LMI hopper development will continue in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russian Federation and Uzbekistan. CIT fledging will occur in other regions of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

    Also available in:

    Favored by hot and dry weather, Moroccan Locust (DMA) hopper development accelerated in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russian Federation and mating and egg-laying took place in the second half of the month. DMA mating and egg-laying gradually subsided by the end of June in most Central Asia (CA) countries. In some CA countries transboundary DMA swarm flights occurred, requiring repeated chemical treatments. In general, chemical campaign against DMA was over by the end of June. Hopper development of the Italian Locust (CIT) continued, including with band formation, in Azerbaijan and Georgia where treatments were carried out while it was accomplished followed by fledging and mating in the southern CA countries. Migratory Locust (LMI) hopper development in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russian Federation and Uzbekistan was accelerated by hot weather. An area of over 900 000 ha was treated in May 2020; in total, about 1.5 million ha have been treated since the beginning of the campaign, which is close to 2019 level.
