ON THE EFFECTS OF SOME FUNGICIDES UPON THE INFECTION AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF LESIONS OF THE BACTERIAL LEAF BLIGHT OF THE RICE PLANT,
ARMY BIOLOGICAL LABS FREDERICK MD
Fungicides for use against the bacterial leaf blight of the rice plant are still in the experimental stage of development, and it is important that the effectiveness of these chemicals be tested under as near real conditions as possible. From this standpoint, the authors conducted this series of tests to evaluate the degree of effectiveness of various fungicides with respect to inhibition of infection and the growth of lesions of this disease, also to determine the loss in effectiveness of fungicide application with time lapsed after infection, the latter being predicated on the hypothesis that maximum effect was achieved with application immediately following a rainstorm.
