In early Oct. 2018, the National Agro-Tech Extension and Service Center (NATESC) published information about the medium-scale occurrence of diseases and pests for late rice in China. The number of rice planthoppers in the east of Jiangnan Region rose fast and the volume of rice leaf rollers in certain areas was quite large.
The NATESC added that the more precipitation in the east of Jiangnan Region over past years favors the epidemic occurrence of rice diseases and pests. It is worth noting that some places in Fujian Province should warn the breakout of rice planthoppers.
