Much rain is the main cause of the occurrence of
many pests and diseases
Particularly, the rainy weather has facilitated the
attack of golden apple snails on the summer-autumn rice plants in the area of
about 167 hectares and rice blast fungus on about 71 hectares. Especially,
autumn armyworms appear corns, causing damage to nearly 500 hectares and leaf
mosaic disease causes damage to about 451 hectares.
Perennial crops are mainly attacked by such diseases
as anthracnose, fast death - slow death, rust disease and mealybugs, pink fungus
and so on.
Various diseases appearing on crops is due to the
rainy weather in the province, heat, and high humidity, which has created
favorable conditions for pests and diseases to develop. To effectively prevent
pests and diseases, the provincial agriculture sector recommends that farmers
should take an initiative in preventive methods.
