An experiment was conducted in the Agronomy Department, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, in 2017-2018, to study the Influence of rice husk ash on controlling insect pests on storage of maize seeds (Zea maize L. ) under Manipur condition. It was observed that when we mixed the rice husk ash with maize seeds properly and stored in a polythene bags for one year at the rate of 400g rice husk ash and above per 1kg` maize seeds, there was no loss of maize seeds from the insect pests. But in control where no rice husk ash was mixed, after one year of storage, all the maize seeds were affected i. e.100 percent, by the insect pests.
