Abstract

Insect pests are major biotic constraints in rice production throughout the country and Karnataka is not an exception. More than 28 insect species have been reported on rice as pests from the state. Among them, brown planthopper (Nilaparvata lugens Stal), yellow stem borer (Scirpophaga incertulas Walker), leaf roller (Cnaphalocrocis medinalis(Guenee)) and gall midge (Orseolia oryzae Wood-Mason) are major ones. The present review focuses on literature generated in Karnataka on various aspects of rice insect pests viz., pest status and their distribution, biology and ecology and different management strategies such as, cultural and mechanical , host plant resistance, role of natural enemies and need based chemical control besides integrated pest management strategies employed against different pests.
