The cultivated rice Oryza sativa was domesticated about 10,000 years ago along the river valleys of South and Southeast China and Asia [14]. Earliest recordings of rice are found in Chinese writings of about 3000 bc. In ancient China, rice was described as the most important food plant in the country. In the Book of Odes, which comprises 305 poems and songs ranged from the tenth to the seventh centuries bc, there is a record seeming to describe grasshoppers and stem borer damaging rice. In that time, insect pests were removed manually by hand or by using simple tools or through cultural practices. Tobacco was also used for control of insect pests [127].
