Abstract

This is the third in a series of studies of crop pest importance carried out by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI). The aim of this study was to assess the relative economic importance of crop pests in the agro-climatic zones of Indonesia. The country was divided into four agro-climatic zones defined by length of dry season, the presence or absence of irrigation and altitude. The study provides guidance on the important pests in each zone and on the zones that are important for particular pests.
