Madhya Pradesh: Farmers in Budhni and Nasrullaganj of Sehore district beat utensils in a bid to scare away swarms of locusts that attacked their farms. Disinfectants are also being sprinkled on trees and crops to protect them from locusts.

Locust swarms are currently present in 16 out of the 52 districts in the state and are concentrated in the Ujjain, Sagar, Bhopal, Gwalior and Chambal divisions.

On Monday, locust swarms attacked crops in Raisen and Sehore districts close to Bhopal.

The most vulnerable crop right now is the short duration moong crop sown in these areas as a third crop between the Rabi and Kharif season
