Download Advances in genetics, genomics and control of rice blast by Gurdev S. Khush, K.K. Jena (auth.), Guo-Liang Wang, Barbara PDF

By Gurdev S. Khush, K.K. Jena (auth.), Guo-Liang Wang, Barbara Valent (eds.)

Rice blast, as a result of the fungal pathogen Magnaporthe grisea, is among the so much damaging rice ailments around the globe and destroys adequate rice to feed greater than 60 million humans each year. as a result of excessive variability of the fungal inhabitants within the box, widespread lack of resistance of newly-released rice cultivars is a huge restraint in sustainable rice creation. within the previous couple of years, major development has been made in knowing the safety mechanism of rice and pathogenicity of the fungus. The rice blast approach has turn into a version pathosystem for knowing the molecular foundation of plant-fungal interactions a result of availability of either genomes of rice and M. grisea and a wide number of genetic assets. This publication offers a whole evaluate of the hot growth and achievements on genetic, genomic and ailment keep an eye on of the ailment. lots of the chapters have been provided on the 4th foreign Rice Blast convention hung on October 9-14, 2007 in Changsha, China. This e-book is a useful reference not just for plant pathologists and breeders engaged on rice blast but additionally for these engaged on different pathysystems in crop plants.

1999). 1 million tons was recorded in Southern China alone. 7 million hectares of rice fields were affected by the blast disease. Blast disease is a major constraint in certain agro-ecological regions of India. Eastern India has the highest occurrence of blast followed by North and South. Sometimes yield losses reach as high as 50% in upland conditions (Widawsky and O’Toole 1990). Production oriented survey is organized by Directorate of Rice Research, Hyderabad every year to document constraints to rice production in various parts of the country.
