We studied the effect of crop growth stage and applied N on leaf blast monocyclic parameters in two blastsusceptible cultivars, a new rice plant type line, IR64454-81-1-3-2, and with IR72 serving as the control (see table). Sporulation was converted to area under the sporulation curve (AUSC, in spores lesion - 1 d -1 ) using the equation


where X 1 = number of spores produced at ith observation, Ti = time (d) between observations, and n = total number of observations.
