More efforts to prevent rice diseases and pests
VietNamNet Bridge - Thanks to synchronous measures taken by southern provinces to prevent rice diseases and pests, more than 1 million ha of ripe winter-spring rice has been protected and is under harvest at high yields, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

However, about 500,000 ha of growing winter-spring rice in southern Vietnam is still threatened by Ray Nau (brown hoppers), "vang lun" (rice grassy stunt disease), and "lun xoan la" (rice ragged stunt disease).

The ministry has launched a one- month campaign to combat brown hoppers and rice diseases, aiming to prevent any outbreak of plant diseases, ensuring that the output of the winter-spring rice crop is not affected.

The ministry said that among the technical measures used in preventing brown hoppers and rice diseases was the measure to define the best time for planting. This should be considered the top priority and has been highly appreciated by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

The government has also supported farmers by covering all funding for purchase for the purchasing of chemicals for plant protection.

The Agriculture and Rural Development Ministry called on several localities to prolong the interval between winter-spring and spring-summer crops in an effort to prevent rice diseases.

According to experts, farmers should prolong the between-crop periods and plant rice with other crops in order to prevent diseases from affecting rice crops. Crop restructuring is also a good measure to prevent brown hoppers and rice diseases, they said.
