How to scout for colaspis in rice - video

Description:
For several years Arkansas rice farmers have had to deal with grape colaspis, a small beetle, whose larvae feed on the roots of rice. Rice drilled into soybean stubble is particularly susceptible to damage from this insect. Larval feeding can cause more than 50 percent reduction in stand. This season colaspis has caused stand reductions in a few rice fields in Acadia, Evangeline and St. Landry parishes. This short video will train you to scout for colaspis in rice. (Runtime: 3:58)
