Liwayway H. Acero
Abstract—This research was undertaken to tap the beneficial use of Dried Leaves of Siam weed to eradicate rice weevils in storage area. It also seeks to find out what best proportion in weight of dried Siam weed leaves and rice grain would get rid the rice weevils. Experimental research method with five treatments was utilized. Gathered data was analyzed using ANOVA single factorial. Findings of the study revealed that highest percentage of mortality after seven days, was obtained from treatment 5 with 40 percent (20 grams dried Siam weed: 50 grams of rice grain) dried leaves of Siam weed. Based on this study rice farmers and rice traders could use dried leaves of Siam weed to eradicate rice weevils in their storage area, to demand for higher price for good quality rice.

Index TermsChromolaena odorata leaves.
