Nature of damage for Rice leaf folder (Pane Gundalnari Ali )

PrintPrintSend to friendSend to friend


1. Larvae feed on leaf tissues and as they become older they fold the leaves longitudinally by bringing together margins, glue with silken threads and live in tubes thus formed.

2. They feed on chlorophyll, resulting initially in whitish longitudinal broad streaks on leaves and later in membranous leaves giving scorched appearance.

3. Vigour of the plant is reduced. It causes more damage at boot leaf stage of the crop.
