Effect of soil nutrients on the growth, survival and fecundity of insect pests of rice: an overview and a theory of pest outbreaks with consideration of research approaches



Effect of soil nutrients on the growth, survival and fecundity of insect pests of rice: an overview and a theory of pest outbreaks with consideration of research approaches



Bulletin OILB/SROP 27(1): 115-122



The addition of nutrients to the soil, especially nitrogen, is known to increase the growth, survival and fecundity of many rice insect pests. Likewise, an environmental stress, such as drought, which increases the availability of soluble nitrogen in the plant could be expected to have similar effects on the insects' biology. An increase in pest populations normally leads to an increase in the immigration and reproductive rates of natural enemies so that pest outbreaks are prevented.
