PrintPrintSend to friendSend to friend

1. Ploughing under the ratoon of previous crops can reduce infestation.

2. Control of grassy weeds and wild rice (alternate hosts) from surrounding areas can reduce Gall midge incidence.

3. Avoiding staggered planting (complete planting in an area within 3 weeks) to reduce infestation.

4. Chemical control: Carbofuran 3G @ 30 kg/ha is found to be highly effective in controlling the insect populations.
