Abstract

The relationship between a rice stem borer Rupela albinella and stem rot, Sclerotium oryzae, was studied in commercial rice fields in the Valle del Cauca Department of Colombia. The insect larvae and their damage were found to be associated with stem rot, but the fungal infection was not dependent on the insect's presence. The number of R. albinella larvae, the wounds caused by them, and stems with fungal infection increased with plant age.
