Controlling Insects In Conventional And Furrow-Irrigated Rice, And Changes In Rice Stink Bug Management

Presented by:  Nick Bateman, Extension Entomologist, University of Arkansas
Presented by:  Chase Floyd, PhD. Candidate, University of Arkansas

Multiple studies were conducted to determine the efficacy of insecticides for rice water weevil in flooded rice, as well as rice billbug in furrow irrigated rice. These tests show that combinations of insecticide seed treatments were the most consistent control options for both of these pests. Assays were also conducted on rice stink bugs to determine tolerance levels to Lambda cyhalothrin along with multiple in-field efficacy trials, and how to manage potential resistance.
