Bui he is hard lo fight because he crawl* Inside the hollow stem of the rich plant, where Insecticides can not reach him. When UNRRA agricultural rehabilitation experts tiled lo help Chinese farmers return their war- pocked farmlands lo top production, their first problem was how to gel at the borei-s. Two or three weeks after Hie first rice plaining, moths come oul of the stubble of last year's crop and lay eggs on Ihe leaves of the new seedlings. When these eggs hatch, there Is a brief Interval before they can eat their way Inside tlie new plants. For lhat short time they can lie reached with Insecticides. So the UNHKA men blended DIJT powder In ihe UNHRA-sponsored National Pesticides Manufaclurini; plant here. They persuaded KiftllK- sl farmers lo leave narrow rows implanted, through which men armed with spray guns could walk to spray the young planls and kill newly-hatched larvae. But this was nol enough. T>ey could nol gei them all. and they knew lhat those that escaped would be back next year, breeding again. I So they spent last winter per- I suadlng farmers to dispose of Ihe i old rice straw, which always had been saved, to net rid of larvae hiding in its .stems. Pi'ot'lnclnl legislation is now [lending to recuilre tint Ibis straw b* destroyed after each harvest. The program's success can nol be told until all of Klangnl'a llnee rice crops have been Imrvesled this year. Hut if the borer scourge can be held down tu this dmigcrous seventh year. UNRRA and local experts are convinced that, within a few seasons, the borer can be destroyed entirely. •arm Bureau Directors to *o!d Meeting In Ihe UNRRA-equlpued laboratory In Shanghai, Chinese chemists seek lien weajxnis In tirht Ihe rice Iwrer.
