Since the era of the Green Revolution, a majestic growth in crop yield rejuvenated an increase in the quantity of staple foods. Still, insects are one of the significant barriers to achieve the goal properly. Rice is the principal staple food in the world. Approximately 14% of the crop productivity of this staple is misplaced by insect pests. It is very much essential to control pests to ensure the global human population for uninterrupted delivery of rice in their plates. Host Plant Resistance has excellent compatibility with chemical, biological, and cultural pest management tactics or practices. This book provides a good deal of currently available information on rice and its cultivation requirements in brief, major insect pests that cause harm in the way of success in harnessing proper yield, role of host plant resistance in rice integrated pest management, collection, evaluation and utilization of insect resistant germplasm, mechanisms of resistance in major insect pests as well as breeding of insect resistant cultivars and finally rice breeding and gene deployment strategies. We hope this book will be helpful and of great interest to the students, teachers and researchers engaged in the field of entomology, plant breeding and genetics, agronomy and biotechnology.
