Russia’s Stavropol Region Plans to End Locust Threat in 7-8 Days
The region sprayed pesticides over 282,000 hectares (696,800 acres) and will continue anti-locust measures over the remaining 46,500 hectares this week, Martychev said in a statement published on the ministry’s website today.
Stavropol is one of Russia’s top grain-growing regions. It accounted for about 8.7 percent of Russia’s total grain crop last year after it harvested about 8.2 million metric tons of grain, according to the state statistics data.
