Ngin Chhay, director of the Agriculture Ministry’s Rice Seedling Department, said yesterday that the insects migrate from Vietnam every year in mid-July. “Currently, the brown plant hoppers have invaded the rice seedlings of the farmers in some districts in Svay Rieng and Prey Veng provinces,” he said.
