Rice is a staple food and the foundation of national stability and economic growth in many developing countries. Rice pests are major biotic constraints limiting rice production globally. This review discusses the biology, ecology, global distribution and plant damage and yield losses caused by insect pests, plant diseases, nematodes, rats and weeds. The interactions among insects, weeds and diseases are discussed. A proposed conceptual framework for arthropod pest management in organic crop… Expand

Impact Assessment of Biological Control-Based Integrated Pest Management in Rice and Maize in the Greater Mekong Subregion
It is suggested that further promotion of IPM adoption among farmers is needed to upscale the already positive effects of interventions that facilitate reductions in synthetic pesticide use, and the effects on sustainable agricultural production of rice and maize in the target area more generally. Expand
Biological Control of Lepidopteran Pests in Rice: A Multi-Nation Case Study From Asia
This case study indicates the potential successes of advanced biological control-based IPM systems for rice production systems in the Greater Mekong Subregion and believes that these systems merit wider consideration, including adaptations for other regions and crops. Expand
Increasing Rice Grain Yield Under Biotic Stresses: Mutagenesis, Transgenics and Genomics Approaches
This work reviews the creation of rice varieties with improved yield under different biotic stress, using mutagenesis, transgenics and genomics approaches, and describes the varieties developed with improved tolerance to various stress factors. Expand
How do stakeholder interactions in Cambodian rice farming villages contribute to a pesticide lock-in?
The conditions and mechanisms that sustain pesticide use by Cambodian rice farmers and constrain a transition to more sustainable pest control practices are addressed and it is suggested that farmers’ knowledge on pest management is not the only driver for their decisions and practices. Expand
Molecular Approaches for Disease Resistance in Rice
Understanding the genetics of disease mechanisms and stacking of broad-spectrum disease-resistance genes could lead to faster development of rice varieties with multiple disease resistance. Expand
Genome Editing Technologies for Rice Improvement: Progress, Prospects, and Safety Concerns
This review focuses on genome-editing tools for rice improvement to address current challenges and provides examples of genome editing in rice, and sheds light on expanding the scope of genome edited and systems for delivering homology-directed repair templates. Expand
Genome Editing in Rice: Recent Advances, Challenges, and Future Implications
This review focuses on the genome editing strategies for rice improvement and sheds light on the role of CRISPR/Cpf1 and base editors in the field of genome editing highlighting major challenges and future implications of these tools in rice improvement. Expand
Factors Constraining Small Scale Rice Production in Jowhar District, Hirshabelle State, Somalia
The study surveyed the factors constrainingrice production in Jowhar district, Hirshabelle state, Somalia. These problems can be grouped into Agronomic and Socioeconomic factors. Rice production inExpand
Efikasi Bioinsektisida Bacillus thuringiensis Barliner terhadap Gryllus bimaculatus De Geer (Orthoptera: Gryllidae) pada Tanaman Padi Utama dan Ratun
Results showed that application of B. thuringiensis bioinsecticide had significant effects in suppressing rice crop damage by G. bimaculatus, but did not had significant effect on growth of rice plants. Expand


Insect pest management in tropical Asian irrigated rice.
  • P. Matteson

Extension challenges are a key topic for rice IPM research, and new pest management technology must promote, rather than endanger, ecological balance in rice paddies. Expand
The role of biodiversity in the dynamics and management of insect pests of tropical irrigated rice—a review
P pest management of much tropical irrigated rice must be based on natural controls rarely supplemented by insecticides, and there is no evidence that a natural control-based approach, as recommended in this review, is incompatible with farmer practicability or with future developments in rice production.

Approaches to pest management in organic agriculture: a case study in European apple orchards
Although the European organic agriculture movement was founded by Rudolf Steiner and Hans Mueller in the years between 1924 and 1940, it was not until the 1980s that pest management researchers beganExpand
Quantifying the Impact of Insecticides on Food Web Structure of Rice-Arthropod Populations in a Philippine Farmer’s Irrigated Field: A Case Study
Rice is grown on 10% of the arable land worldwide and provides one-third of the total calorie supply for two-thirds of the human population (International Rice Research Institute, 1991; Food andExpand
Managing Tropical Rice Pests Through Conservation of Generalist Natural Enemies and Alternative Prey
The results demonstrate the existence of a mechanism in tropical irrigated rice systems that supports high levels of natural biological control, which depends on season l ong successional processes and interactions among a wide array of species, many of which have hitherto been ignored as important elements in a rice ecosystem. Expand
Mechanisms for flowering plants to benefit arthropod natural enemies of insect pests: Prospects for enhanced use in agriculture
Reduction of noncrop habitats, intensive use of pesticides and high levels of disturbance associated with intensive crop production simplify the farming landscape and bring about a sharp decline ofExpand
Weedy rice and its management - a review.
Best methods for preventing the infestation of weedy rice are use of clean seed, use of pre germinated seed, stale bed preparation, roguing, crop rotation, application of pre emergence herbicides and Integrated Weed Management (IWM). Expand
Review of research into outbreaks and management of rice planthoppers
The main progress in research on these pests in the past half century is introduced, the main research obstacles are discussed and research to develop sustainable management programs for these pests within intensified rice production systems is proposed. Expand
Parasitic weed incidence and related economic losses in rice in Africa
Parasitic weeds pose increasing threats to rain-fed rice production in Africa. Most important species are Striga asiatica, S. aspera and S. hermonthica in rain-fed uplands, and Rhamphicarpa fistulosaExpand
Ecology of Common Insect Pests of Rice
Although rice is grown under diverse cultural conditions and over a wide geographical range, it is essentially a crop of warm humid en­ vironments conducive to the survival and proliferation of insects. Expand
