Rice Water Weevil Control Strategies

Rice is an important U.S. crop with many important insect threats to quality and yield, including the rice water weevil.

Mike Stout, an entomologist at the Louisiana State University AgCenter, provides information on strategies to control rice water weevil. One proven strategy is using DuPont Dermacor® X-100 rice seed treatment.

Stout notes that Dermacor® provides 90 to 95 percent control of rice water weevil larva populations plus suppression of stem borer, another damaging insect.
