Abstract
Rice Brown Planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stal) (BPH) has become number one yield limiting factor in all the Asian countries necessitating a program for imparting proper knowledge to the rice farmers. Favourable weather conditions for BPH upsurge along with methods for proper assessment of field populations, Importance of cultural methods in lowering BPH multiplication, role of BPH resistant and tolerant varieties in pest management, Rotating insecticides with different modes of action, awareness of brand names of insecticides, Regular monitoring for insecticide resistance and accordingly modifying recommendations to farmers appear to be very important in educating the farmers.
