Whitefly Attack Deteriorates Palm & Coconut Plantation in Telangana
Feb. 7, 2020
After the deadly locust attack in North Indian states, another pest attack is making it difficult for farmers and this time in the southern regions. A serious whitefly attack has infested thousands of acres of palm and coconut plantations in regions of Telangana. In Telangana's Bhadradri Kothagudem district, the whitefly attack is leaving farmers in worries.
To solve this issue, many officials are trying to search for solutions. Officials have studied these pests and have found out that these pests are largely found in the United States, Mexico, and Belize. As they are not native and will not be able to survive the weather conditions in India, it is believed that these pests will not survive more.
