The major insect pests on rice in Tanzania are listed and described. They are from five orders (Coleoptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, Lepidoptera and Orthoptera) and are discussed as stem borers, stem and root feeders, and leaf and panicle feeders. This review puts together the hitherto fragmented information available on the distribution, host range, biology/life-cycle and ecology, and the management measures of the insect pests of rice. Areas for future research are also mentioned.
