Now, they would test the pesticide in open fields.
Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) urged the government to fully support farmers for elimination of locust, as the worst attacks had devastated the agriculture sector in various parts of the country. Talking to the media here, LCCI President Irfan Iqbal Sheikh said that according to reports, locust swamps had destroyed around 40 per cent of wheat, cotton, vegetables and other crops in different parts of Sindh and now the locust had entered Punjab that should be a matter of great concern for all.
He said that crops, particularly cotton, had already been badly affected by rains and now locusts attack was aggravating the situation. He said, “Farmers are much worried about it and compelled to see their crops being destroyed in front of their eyes. They are trying to run millions of locusts away through self-help and with indigenous methods in the absence of departments’ support.
