Russia's assistance in fighting the invasion of desert locusts in Uganda

On 14.02.20, the Ugandan office of the IGC received a letter from the Director of NARO, Dr. Ambrose Agona, requesting help in the fight against locust infestations in Uganda. The Russian side promptly responded to this request and sent letters to leading organizations and enterprises in Russia dealing with this issue. Proposals were received from them and, already on 02.03.2020, the first sample of the drug proposed by JSC "Shchelkovo agrochem" was delivered to Uganda for field testing. Dr. Ambrose Agona expressed gratitude and great respect to all Russian colleagues and partners for their prompt assistance.
