In recent years, with the adjustment and optimization of plant industry structure, cultivated area of early rice has been reduced, which is beneficial to the concentration of rice pests such as two-specific migration insects and rice asiatic borer. In addition, under the high irrigated and fertile cultivation conditions, pests and diseases can grow fast, which is conducive to pandemic occurrence.Moreover most of the pests have increased resistance to common pesticides in different degrees, and some rice areas have reached high levels of resistance.


According to the comprehensive forecast from climate centers in various provinces, there will be 7-8 typhoons land on south and southeast coastal area in China this summer. In some places, rice planthopper and rice leaf roller will occour concentratedly and bacterial diseases will have pandemic happen as well.
