Rice Doctor is an interactive tool for extension workers, students, researchers and other users who want to learn and diagnose pest, disease, and other problems that can occur in rice; and how to manage them.

This product has been developed by an international team involving –

  • International Rice Research Institute (IRRI)
  • Lucid team at the Identic Pty Ltd.

The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) has contributed funding for the research, development, and production of this product.

This interactive tool allows users to diagnose or at least make a short list of possible problems occurring in a rice crop. The key covers over 90 pests and diseases and other disorders. The combination of text descriptions and images helps users in the process of diagnosing their problems.

Fact sheets on each possible disorder provide brief descriptions of the signs and symptoms of specific problems, together with details of any available management options. A keyword search function enables users to directly access specific fact sheets. For further information on these disorders, users can link to full fact sheets on the IRRI Rice Knowledge Bank website.
