There are no ShB-resistant varieties for that region, so chemical management is used. Recently, more attention has been paid to chemicals that would not have a negative impact on microorganisms endogenous to the rice crop ecosystem.


In 1994 and 1995, we screened fungicides known to be effective against ShB but harmless to Trichoderma harzianum (Th), which is a well-known biocontrol agent of the causal agent of ShB, Rhizoctonias olani.
