Floods agriculture data

The desert locusts have spread in at least 40 of Madhya Pradesh’s 55 districts — nearly a week after they entered the state in end-May 2020. They invaded some parts of Chhattisgarh’s Koriya district as well on May 31, creating a scare among local authorities, according to officials.
It is evident from the wind data analysis in six north Indian cities conducted by International Water Management Institute that there was a sharp increase in the wind speed at 10 metres above the ground from mid-May onwards, which helped the locust move from Rajasthan to Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
