Rice Yellow Dwarf Disease

Abstract

Yellow dwarf disease of rice has been reported in most of the rice growing countries of the East and South East Asia. In some areas of Japan and India, the disease has been observed to cause serious damage to the crop (Hayashi, 1961; IRRI. 1969; Ishii et al., 1969; Mishra et al., 1971; Miyahara and Yamaguchi, 1965; Ling.1972; Muniyappa. 1974; Muniyappa and Ramakrishnan, 1976a, 1976b; Murata et al., 1965; Nishio et al., 1964 and Raychaudhuri et al., 1967b). In recent years with continuous cropping, with the release of varieties which are comparatively photo-insensitive, the rice yellow dwarf disease is tending to attain economic importance in India. Details have been discussed earlier by Raychaudhuri, 1977, 1984) and Raychaudhuri and Nariani (1977).
