Using Anther Culture to Develop Rice Germplasm] 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. 57 p. 21.5 x 28 cm.
