KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development has said that the locust insects, which have already entered Nepal will not cause big loss in the agriculture sector of the country.
The Ministry has urged farmers not to panic as the locusts are small in size.
Minister of Agriculture, Ghanashyam Bhusal said his ministry will coordinate with United Nations officials and the Government of India for measures needed to mitigate the effects of the insects.
According to him, the ministry will ensure a tracking strategy by coordinating with India’s concerned officials and the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization.
