  Survivorship and fertility of the White Backed Plant Hopper (WBPH), Sogatella furcifera were assessed under laboratory conditions in Myanmar. A pair of five days old WBPH was released into a wooden cage covered with wire mesh sieve. Thirty days old rice plant in a pot was placed on the floor of the wooden cage. The single sex method was applied in the life table study. Life tables and population parameters were constructed based on unlimited food supply and a natural enemies-free environment. Results showed that the highest mortality occurred in the immature stages, especially in the first and second instars. The life table analysis showed that population densities of S. furcifera decreased gradually. The proportion of male to female observed was 1:0.88. The females could live for a maximum of 12 days. The trend of oviposition showed a peak at about the 10th day of the female life span. The mean number of eggs produced per female was 8.75. The intrinsic rate of increase (rm) was 0.06999 per female per day and daily finite of increase (λ) was 1.0255 per female per day, with a mean generation time (T) of 34.97 days. The net reproductive rate (Ro) of the population was 9.2732. The population Doubling Time (DT) was within 10.88 days. It could be concluded that the survivorship curve reflected a modest rate of mortality during the early life stages and a gradual reduction when approaching adulthood. All the surviving nymphs underwent four moults. The life table showed that about 37.26% of S. furcifera eggs successfully emerged as adults and high mortality occurred during the early immature stages. This type of survivorship is commonly classified as type II.

  Population fluctuation of Brown Plant Hopper (BPH) and White Backed Plant Hopper (WBPH) were studied in Myanmar for two seasons (rainy and summer). Experiments was conducted on a 5 ha rainfed unsprayed field and done in 5 experimental units with an area of 100x100 m. BPH and WBPH were counted from 30 rice hills out of 2000 hills randomly. Relative humidity, temperature, rainfall were also recorded. Population fluctuation study revealed that BPH population was high at 64 and 74 days after transplanting (in Mid September 2007) associated with heavy rainfall, high temperature and high humidity. The BPH population was lowest (in mid week October 2007) suggesting that low rainfall and low humidity were at least partially responsible for the decrease population of BPH. The WBPH was being passed thorough the same weather regime as BPH. When the rainfall decreased or trend to stop the population began to build up reach its peak. This trend of population fluctuation is not directly related with rainfall, but rainfall could be in influencing the physiology of rice plant. This can be seen in the correlation and regression analysis. The fluctuation of plant hopper were correlated with temperature and showed higher correlation with rainfall patterns during the first cropping season. Second cropping season coincide with dry season, there was no rainfall and hopper population was observed to be correlated to temperature and relative humidity. Thus temperature, rainfall and relative humidity were observed to influence plant hopper population during the two different rice growing seasons.
