Field problems of tropical rice (Lao)
This manual has been one of IRRI's most popular publications. The 1983 revised edition has 153 colored plates to help rice workers identify common production problems such as insects, diseases, weeds, and problem soils.
Although the original edition focused on problems in Asia, the revision also identifies common problems in Africa and Latin America. The revision is designed to facilitate its low-cost translation and copublication by agricultural programs, international agencies, and publishers in developing nations.
