 - Diagnostic Durant la 3ème décade de mai, la totalité de la Grande-Île était sèche. Le dessèchement des tapis végétaux se poursuivait, surtout dans les biotopes xérophiles et mésophiles, où le point de flétrissement permanent était atteint. Dans l’Aire grégarigène, les populations imaginales diffuses continuaient à coloniser les biotopes méso-hygrophiles et hygrophiles ...read more

Reflecting mostly the impact of rainfall deficits, national maize production ...read more
