    Moroccan Locust (DMA) hatching started significantly earlier than last year in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan (and probably Turkmenistan), as a result of a warm weather with close to or below the normal rainfall in late winter - early spring. Overall, warmer and drier conditions ensured good overwintering of eggs. If such warm and dry conditions persist through April, locust numbers should be up compared to 2019. During the forecast period, DMA hopper development will continue in the above countries while hatching will start in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the Russian Federation as well as in Azerbaijan and Georgia. Italian Locust (CIT) hatching may start by the end of the forecast period in some Caucasian and Central Asian countries. In March, over 13 000 ha have been treated against DMA in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, which is significantly more than in 2019 (1 500 ha) but less than in 2018 (57 000 ha).
