São Filipe, Aug 29 (Inforpress) – The technical team from the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment (MAA) is alert and prepared to combat green bug (turtle) pests and locusts, since the delegation has all necessary equipment and materials, said Jaime Ledo, MAA’s Delegate.
At this moment, there are records of outbreaks of green bug in Chã das Caldeiras, in larger dimension, and in Atalaia, northern area of the Mosteiros.
According to Jaime Ledo, the MAA team will pay greater attention to the attack of the Atalaia focus, where the crop is more advanced and beans are in the stage of pod formation and the presence of this pest can cause greater losses.
In relation to Chã das Caldeiras, Jaime Ledo said that the turtles never disappeared and they were in the rocks and with the rains are visible in the castor and other shrubs crops.
