Tungro virus can not be directly controlled by applying any chemical. The best method of preventing tungro is to grow resistant varieties. A variety may be resistant to virus or the insect vector or to both virus and insect vector.
VIKRAMARYA, developed at Directorate of Rice Research, Hyderabad is the resistant variety now available for general cultivation. Other promising resistant medium duration cultures include: IET 9994, IET 8560 and IET 8565 with slender grains and IET 8902 with long bold grains.
