Two new videos on ecologically based rodent management (EBRM) were produced by the Irrigated Rice Research Consortium. Of rice and rats: an introduction to ecologically based rodent management, features the impacts of rodents on people and rice crops, particularly in Southeast Asia. The concept of EBRM is explained, and effective community actions to control rice field rats are suggested. How to control rice field rats is geared more for training purposes, and explains the breeding dynamics of the rice field rat and its relation to the rice planting season. It introduces EBRM and highlights effective community actions to control rice field rats, such as the trap barrier system.
