Locust attack is termed one of the biggest threat to crops in recent times. It damaged crops over millions of acres of land across country in the recent past. Prof Dr Shafqat Saeed, director Institute of Plants Protection, told APP on Sunday that the biopesticide preparation was a landmark achievement of the university. He said that the agriculture scientists had been working on elimination of different pests. Recently, they prepared a biopesticide which could successfully eliminate locusts in two to three days.
 
He said that they reared locust in lab and tested biological control on it. He said scientists have achieved success during tests, conducted in the lab.
 
Dr Safqat Saeed said that Kohat University of Science and Technology also extended cooperation for the project to control locust biologically. To a question, he said that they would test the biopesticide in the field with collaboration of other departments of agriculture.
