Panicle thrip and Rice hispa in Paddy

Rice Panicle Thrips: Haplothrips ganglbaueri

Incidence of this pest is serious in South India during first fortnight of December. Both nymphs and adults damage the crop by desaping the emerging panicles, causing chaffy grains. The freshly emerged panicle harbours maximum population but with advancing age of the panicle, the population declines.


Hipsa: Dicladispa armigera

             Its black coloured adults and caterpillars scrap the green matter from the leaves to eat away the same. The leaves get dried up.
