San-Huang-Zhan No. 2 (SHZ), a rice variety developed by the Guangdong Academy of Agricultural Sciences, was cultivated on 1,533 ha in 1986. It then spread from 8,000 ha in 1987 to 10,977 ha in 1995 and showed excellent resistance to blast in an environment favorable to blast in Guangdong, China. Therefore, we assumed that SHZ is a variety with durable resistance to blast.
