[IPM in Rice] The dynamics of rice pests (harmful arthropods, diseases, and weeds) increase both rice research costs and market prices. To counteract the serious loss of yield (20%) to pests in Latin America, the manual offers rice farmers and researchers up-to-date methods of control, thresholds of damage, and integrated management strategies. Four institutions sponsored the work: the Fundacion Polar of Venezuela, FEDEARROZ of Colombia, the Fund for Latin American Irrigated Rice (Flar) and CIAT.
