Rice leaf folder,?
Yellow stem borer
Aim: To study the
impact of environmental factors on yellow stem borer (YSB) and rice leaf
folder (RLF) on rice.
untreated rice plot of 100 m2 was studied to observe the impact of
temperature, rainfall and relative humidity on seasonal abundance of yellow
stem borer and rice leaf folder.
Heart (DH) incidence and White ear-head (WE) in YSB were negatively
correlated with mean-temperature, positively correlated with relative
humidity and showed significant positive correlation with rainfall. The
percent incidence of RLF was significantly and negatively correlated with
mean temperature, and positively correlated with mean relative humidity and
total rainfall. ????
was observed that abiotic factors play a crucial role in growth and survival
