Rodents cause serious damage to rice production in Cambodia.
This trapping system limits access of rats to rice fields, therefore, reducing damage to rice production.
Medium and smallholder farmers
For control of rats in rice fields in Cambodia, a plastic barrier is set up around the field. At strategic locations, holes are made in the plastic and rat traps are set up inside the field. Rats that attempt to enter the field from outside through the holes get trapped.
This innovation is environmentally safe.
