Do Alternate Wetting and Drying Irrigation Technologies and Nitrogen Rates Affect Rice Sheath Blight?
Water and nitrogen management play vital roles in rice production. However, the mismanagement of either may trigger plant disease epidemics such as sheath blight of rice, caused by _Rhizoctonia solani_, which is favoured by wet conditions, high …
Do Alternate Wetting and Drying Irrigation Technology and Nitrogen Rates Affect Rice Sheath Blight?
This project conducted two studies in 2015 and 2016 at IRRI to understand the effects of alternate wetting and drying water saving technologies on rice sheath blight.
