Chapter synopsis: Rodents cause significant damage to rice crops at all stages. The intensity of rice cropping and the level of asynchrony of cropping affects the level of rodent losses. It is important to understand the biology of rodent species causing damage in order to develop appropriate management strategies. This chapter examines the impact of rodents on rice and comprehensively surveys physical, chemical, biocontrol-based and other methods of rodent management. Case studies of ecologically based rodent management in Vietnam, Laos and Tanzania form the background to the chapter’s assessment of the future for control of rodents and other vertebrate pests affecting rice production.
