Farmers should not cultivate rice seedlings before May 20 in Punjab

Farmers should not cultivate rice seedlings before May 20. According to the Punjab Agricultural Pest Ordinance, 1959, cultivation of rice seedlings is prohibited before May 20, because the stem borers of rice crop hibernate during the winter season and their moths emerge in late March and early April. If seedlings are cultivated at this time, the moths start their breeding cycle by laying eggs on it, which also becomes epidemic. Rice growers should avoid cultivating rice plants before the right time.
