This experiment has been carried out to establish the most effective rearing method of rice stemborer, Chilo suppressalis (Walker) on artificial diets under the aseptic condition. The results obtained were summarized as follows: 1. Semi·synthetic diet was giving better results in the weight of matured larvae (96.4mg), emerging rate$(96.7\%)$ and number of egg masses (2.6) than other diets studied. 2. Number of egg masses and hatching rate were significantly increased on the semi-synthetic diet and chemically defned diet, and it may be due to the choline chloride in the diets, 3. Rice seedling was used as a convenient food material. However, it requires more labours and causes more damages of larvae in replacement of fresh seedlings. 4. A different result in larval weight and pupation rate was observed between simplified diet no. 1 and diet added with chlorella. 5. Simplified diet resulted in low hatchability in the second generation, which may be due to the mulnutrition of the diet for adults. 6. The pupation rate was significantly decreased by infection of microorganisms on matured larvae.
