According to a government agency in the neighboring country, regions of the western border of Rio Grande do Sul are on alert; in a square kilometer, up to 40 million locusts can eat what 2,000 cows consume in a day
The appearance of a cloud of locusts in Argentina scared rural producers, as well as government entities of the country. On Monday, 22, the National Service of Health and Agri-food Quality (Senasa) of Argentina published a map with warning of the plague in which it is possible to see a red stripe that represents 'danger'. Regions of the western border of Rio Grande do Sul are on the alert of Argentines.
Also on Monday, the government of Córdoba, another Argentine province, also warned of the passage of locusts in the region. "The Ministry of Agriculture of Córdoba and Senasa monitor the situation. In Córdoba, both properties have working protocols to be activated in case of entry of the pest," he said on Twitter.
