Scholarcy highlights

  • Bacterial blight of rice is among the most devastating rice diseases that occur globally, ranging in distribution from 20 °S in Queensland, Australia to 58 °N in Heilang Jiang, China
  • The disease is destructive in the tropics, especially in Asia, where rice is grown throughout the year, during heavy rains of the monsoon season, and peaking at the flowering stage
  • Effective chemical control for the management of rice BB is yet to be developed because of the extreme variability of the pathogen population in its sensitivity to antibiotics and chemicals used for control
  • Isolation and characterization of Bacillus spp. from the rice rhizosphere and their role in biological control of bacterial blight of rice caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae
  • Identification of 2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol production by plant-associated bacteria and its role in suppression of rice bacterial blight in India
