Frame of Image 010 to 47.3% in 2050, indicating an increased likelihood of rice shortage in Korea. While the dependence of agriculture on climate is easily apparent, recently many studies have highlighted just how sensitive our systems are to climactic change. One such study showed that recent climate variabilities in temperature, precipitation, or their interaction account for roughly a third of global crop yield variability. Climate change is altering the incidence and distribution of disease and insect pests, which greatly impact rice production. As a national level adaptation measure, efforts are currently being made to the control of the spread of foreign pests. Methods range from the fortification of national quarantine programs to responsive

action for the complete extermination of the foreign pests, relying on the thorough detection of pest infestation in each local level. In line with the latter, pest surveillance systems, which enable early detection and subsequent control action in the crop fields, are already being built and operated in some areas. Preventative measures, which are enacted before pest infestations can occur, are conducted in some developed countries such as Korea and Japan. Ideally, this consists of predicting the level of pest infestation risk in advance and, if the risk is deemed high enough, spraying preventive pesticides. However in most areas, rather than during times of high risk,
