Rabat, Morocco (TMT)-┬áThe Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) said that Morocco and Algeria should be very vigilant in the wake of the presence of recently discovered Desert Locust gatherings in Morocco’s Sahara.

The FAO said in a statement that “strict vigilance is required in Morocco and Algeria, especially in areas south of the Atlas Mountains, which could become possible breeding grounds for Desert Locust.”

If not taken seriously, desert locust may pose a potential threat to crops in the Atlas region.
