1. The egg-larval parasitoid, Platygaster oryzae (Cameron) has been recognized as one of the important parasitoids of GM and parasitism reached up to 93% during October-November.
2. Mummies of P. oryzae were found in the upper portion of the silver shoots in the rainy months and in lower portion in dry months.
3. P. oryzae and Platygaster sp. occur in fairly large number in the field, but parasitism occurs late in the crop season.
