K.L. Heong, insect ecologist at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI; http://irri.org ), discusses creative technology for controlling planthoppers, which can be devastating pests of rice.


IRRI advocates that rice farmers use environmentally friendly approaches to pest management, such as integrated pest management, that control pests through the use of pest-resistant varieties, a smarter understanding and management of pest ecology, and an elimination of ineffective and problematic insecticides.
