*Use high quality disease-free seeds
*Plant genetically resistant seed varieties
*Maintain adequate space: Avoid over-dense planting in order to allow light to penetrate
*Crop rotation is recommended
*Adequate fertilization: Overuse of nitrogen fertilizers and underuse of potassium fertilizers tends to increase plants susceptibility to many diseases, such as brown leaf spot.
The sooner the better: It is easier and more cost effective to overcome infections during the initial stage. Make a routine to monitor the field regularly and search plants for the presence of brown leaf spot.
*Sanitation: Infected plant debris must be removed at the end of cultivation in order to avoid the fungus from surviving and infecting newly planted rice.
