AUSTRALIA: Plague of locusts descends on Australia's wine crop
The plague is expected to be the worst in several decades as a wet southern summer has produced ideal breeding conditions.
A big locust outbreak has already attacked New South Wales and Western Australia's wheatbelt.
The Plague Locust Commission estimates that the insects could cause A$200m damage to cereal, vegetable and wine crops in the eastern states.
