As publication 34 in its Desert Locust Technical Series, FAO's Plant Production and Protection Division has just published a "Review of the efficacy of Metarhizium anisopliae var. acridum against the Desert Locust" by H. van der Valk. Isolates of the entomopathogenic (i.e. pathogenic to insects only) fungus Metarhizium can be used as a biopesticide against the Desert Locust.
