Genetic control of banded leaf and sheath blight (Rhizoctonia solani f. sp. sasakii) in maize (Zea mays L.)



Genetic control of banded leaf and sheath blight (Rhizoctonia solani f. sp. sasakii) in maize (Zea mays L.)



Cereal Research Communications 32(3): 309-316



One of the main deterrents to high grain yield in maize is its susceptibility to several diseases. Banded leaf and Sheath blight (BLSB) caused by (Rhizoctonia solani f. sp. sasakii) has become a serious threat to its cultivation in the north-western plains of India. The pathogen spreads from the basal sheath to the developing ear under favourable environmental conditions. The developing ear is completely damaged and dries up prematurely with caking of husk leaves.
