Control Measures for Rice Gall midge

Chemical Control Measures for Gall midge: Soil application of phorate 10G @ 10 Kg Or quinalphos 5G @ 15 Kg Or ethoprophos 5G @ 15 Kg/ha. at 10 and 30 days after transplanting based on 5 per cent silver shoots /sq. m ETL.

Biological Control Measures for Gall midge: Growing tolerant or resistant varieties like Shakti, Kakatia, Surekha, Falguna, Vikram, Vaibhav, Smita, Tata etc.

Nature of damage for Gall midge (Nal and Gad mashi )

1. A newly hatched maggot reach and feed on shoot apex resulting in the formation of a long tubular structure known as “gall” or “silver shoot”.

2. It is a hollow whitish to pale green cylindrical tube bearing at its tip a green reduced flag leaf. Infested tillers do not bear panicles.

3. Maximum infestation occurs during tillering stage. Once panicle initiation occurs larvae no longer cause damage.

4. Late planted crop is severely damaged. Early rains and subsequent dry periods result in higher infestation.

Control Measures for Rice Stem Borer

 Chemical   Control Measures  in Nursery  of stem borer:

1. Soil application of phorate 10G @ 10 Kg/ha. Or quinalphos 5G @ 15 Kg/ ha. Or carbofuran 3G @ 16.5 Kg/ha. 25 days after sowing based on one moth or egg mass /sq.m. ETL

2). Foliar application of 0.06 per cent endosulfan Or 0.08 per cent quinalphos  Or 0.08 per cent fenitrothion based on ETL.

Chemical Control Measures in Field to control of stem borer:

1. Application of any one of the insecticides suggested based on consistently increased trend of moths in light trap or 1 egg mass or 5 per cent dead hearts ETL.

2. In case of mid late varieties one soil application of granular insecticide or two foliar sprays at 7 days interval starting from 25 days after transplanting (DAT) while,  in case of late varieties two soil applications of granular insecticide or four foliar sprays at weekly interval for late varieties starting from 25 days after transplanting .

Nature of damage of Yellow stem borer

 

1. It is a major pest of rice and is very serious in double cropped areas.

2. The caterpillar bores into the stem and feeds internally causing death of the central shoot. This is called “dead –heart.”

3. If crop is attacked during reproductive phase the damaged plants bears empty white ears locally called “palinj.” The dead hearts and white ears come out easily when pulled out.

3. Local Name - Khod kida.

4. Pests characteristics - Regular in occurrence throughout the year.

5. Infestation intensities - Low to severe upto 80.00 per cent.

6. Crop Growth stages - All stages of crop growth i.e. seedling, tillering and boot leaf stage.

Symptoms and Nature of damage of Rice Hispa

Symptom of attack Rice hispa:

The mining of the grubs will be clearly seen on the leaves. White parallel line will be clear on the leaves.

Nature of damage of Rice hispa:

The grub mines into the leaf blade and feed on the green tissue between the veins. Adults also feed in the green tissue; they scrape the green matter of the tender leaves.

Generally the plants are affected in the young stage.
