Investigations in the field and laboratory in Kyushu, Japan, in 1973 on the causal agent and vectors of a disease of rice termed Waisei disease that has caused stunting of the plants and losses in yield since 1971 are reported. Of four species of leafhoppers tested as vectors, Nephotettix cincticeps (Uhl.) was found capable of transmitting the agent, which was believed to be a virus.
