The Locust programme this week looks at the measures people should take to stay safe during biopesticide spraying to control the locusts. The biopesticide is a non-commercially available powder that is mixed with diesel to make it into a liquid form that is effective in killing the locusts.
Dr Hared Abdullahi Nur, Field Crop Protection Officer in Garowe for the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO)’s Desert Locust programme, responds to the concerns raised by farmers and livestock herders over the pesticides.
The programme is presented by Radio Ergo’s Abdirahman Taysiir.
