Fertilizer: Rice disease
resistance is habitually affected through high nitrogen supply (Ballini et al., 2013).
In this study, the influences of different fertiliser treatments on rice pests and diseases were studied to explore the regularity of rice disease
Plant diseases are the major yield reducing agents in rice therefore, exploitation of genetic resistant is the most effective and economical way to control the rice disease

Colleen Hefferan of the CSREES said the project would provide genomics-based tools that can be used by conventional plant breeders and others to develop better rice varieties, specifically by increasing rice milling yield and resistance to sheath blight, a major rice disease
Likewise realizing the importance of rice disease
especially the rice blast and bacterial leaf blight, several efforts have been made for increasing the resistance against these diseases.
Rice blast caused by Magnophorthe oryzae is among serious rice disease
, which induced significantly economic loss each year.
