Excessive temperature in SD1 could have exceeded the optimum temperature requirements for heading, anthesis and physiological maturity stage in rice plant
More recently, in a small-plot, 3 yr-study, Godfrey & Palrang (1996) found reduced biomass accumulation by rice plants
when larval populations were higher than 7 larvae per core.

The stem extracts reduced the root growth of the rice plants
significantly with increase in the concentration levels.
Even better is using nitrogen-fixing bacteria as the vehicle, an approach that results in dual benefits for the rice plant
The rice plants
thrived, achieving notable increased tolerance to cold, salt and drought, even though the rice varieties they tested were not naturally adapted to these stressors.
The ready to serve rice plant

In Texas, farmers can lose from 500-1,000 pounds per acre as this weevil swims, crawls and flies through the field, laying eggs underwater so the larvae can grow by gnawing on rice plant
roots, the researcher explained.
