Don’t Let Locust Ruin Your Year’s Work

Article by BASF

Dear Customer,

Recent reports from the Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC) show that locust populations have continued increasing – particularly in the Riverina and the Jerilderie-Darlington Point-Hay-Deniliquin areas. In Queensland, Isolated – Scattered-density adults were identified in the Central West, Maranoa and Warrego districts.

The outlook for autumn is for a moderate increase in the overall population level in inland eastern Australia, with medium to high densities persisting in the NSW Riverina district and adjacent areas, and low to medium densities in the arid interior with some localised medium to high densities.

There is a low-moderate likelihood of region-wide infestations developing in the NSW Riverina and surrounding areas and the arid interior of inland eastern Australia during autumn. If you’re worried about the damage locusts could cause in your crop, consider Green Guard®  SC Premium as a biological alternative to defending yourself against infestations.
