Contingency plans
Contingency planning issues were discussed in depth by the 8th FAO Desert Locust Control Committee Technical Group at a workshop (English, French) in May 2004. A series of spreadsheets to help determine the resources needed for outbreak, upsurge and plague campaigns as well as several simulations illustrating typical ULV spray deposit, finding and treating hopper patches, and band block control are available as zipped files.
