Management Of Stemborer In Paddy

Paddy Stem Borer

Stemborer is a common paddy pest, displays sexual dimorphism where females, larger with a black spot, lay eggs, developing into larvae, pupae, and adult moths.

Brown egg clusters near leaf tips indicate Stemborer presence, a common symptom.


Larvae cause shoot drying, forming a "dead heart" in affected plants.

Adult plant infestation leads to dry panicles, known as "white ear" in rice fields.

Neem seed kernel extract or neem oil spraying is effective prevention.

Preventive Measures

Clip affected seedling tips pre-transplant to remove egg masses.

Use quality insecticides for further pest control measures.
