The situation was critical in Afghanistan and Tajikistan in early May, while it was classified as caution by the end of month for both countries. DMA hopper development continued in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russian Federation. Italian Locust (CIT) hatching started followed by hopper development in most Caucasus and Central Asia (CCA) countries.
