Pearl millets, pulses, moong and moth are some of the main crops under threat due to the locust menace
It has been more than three months since the second wave of locusts hit India after the first attack earlier this year.
However, so far there are few signs that the menace is abating and if the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)'s latest advisory is anything to go by, the problem of locusts is expected to get worsen, going ahead.
This is because of new breeding the Horn of Africa, and fresh swarms are likely to move towards the India-Pakistan border in the coming weeks.
