Tips for better crop Protection

• Use disease and insect-free pure seeds

• Pay more attention to nursery protection

• Ensure timely planting and crop protection during early growth stage

• Maintain field sanitation and adopt clean cultivation

• Provide alleys (30 cm width) every 3 meters in the main field

• Apply nitrogen fertiliser in splits (3-4 times or adjust when conditions warrant)

• Monitor incidence of pests and diseases through survey and surveillance programme

• Exploit biological control by encouraging natural enemies through need based pesticide application.

• While applying chemicals, maintain constantly the recommended quantity of pesticide per ha.

• Do not apply granules after booting stage of the crop growth.

• At flowering stage, dust or spray only during afternoon/evening hours. For effective control of brown planthopper and whitebacked planthopper, direct spray or dust towards the basal portion of the plants.

• Water depth should not be more than 5.0 cm at the time of granular application and water should be kept impounded for 3-4 days.

• Mix emulsifiable concentrates, wettable powders, water soluble granules and water dispersible granules separately in water and add to the sprayer.

• If rainfall occurs within 3 hours after spraying, repeat the spray.
