Wheat blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae pathotype Triticum (MoT) is a threat to wheat production especially in the warmer-humid environments. In Zambia, wheat blast symptoms were observed for the first time on wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grown in experimental plots and five farmers’ fields in Mpika district of Muchinga Province during the 2017–18 rainy season. Infected plants showed the typical wheat blast symptoms with the spike becoming partially or completely bleached with the blackening… Expand

Evaluation of wheat genotypes for field resistance to wheat blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae pathotype Triticum (MoT) and correlation between yield loss and disease incidence in the Brazilian Cerrado
TLDR
A strong correlation between head blast incidence and yield loss is indicated, indicating that incidence could be an appropriate selection parameter in breeding programs targeting blast resistance. Expand
Wheat Blast: A Disease Spreading by Intercontinental Jumps and Its Management Strategies
TLDR
Resistance source is mostly limited to 2NS carriers, which are being eroded by newly emerged MoT isolates, demonstrating an urgent need for identification and utilization of non-2NS resistance sources. Expand
Pyricularia sp. jiangsuensis, a new cryptic rice panicle blast pathogen from rice fields in Jiangsu Province, China.
TLDR
The results provide evidences that P. jiangsuensis represents an addition to the mycobiota of blast disease, and sheds new light on the adaptability in the co-evolution of pathogen and host. Expand
Morphological and molecular characterization of Pyricularia oryzae isolates causing wheat blast in Bangladesh
Pyricularia oryzae tritici , one of the most notorious pathogens of wheat, is a major biotic threat in wheat production around the globe. A total of sixteen P. oryzae tritici isolates isolated fromExpand
Identification of Rice Blast Loss-of-Function Mutant Alleles in the Wheat Genome as a New Strategy for Wheat Blast Resistance Breeding
TLDR
Insight is provided into new wheat blast resistant lines, which represent a valuable breeding resource through insights into loss-of-function alleles identified in this study. Expand
Breeding Wheat for Biotic Stress Resistance: Achievements, Challenges and Prospects
Wheat (T. aestivum) is one of the key food grain crops and is a prominent source of calories and proteins globally. In addition to mushrooming population and rising abiotic stresses in this ongoingExpand
Screening and Mapping for Head Blast Resistance in a Panel of CIMMYT and South Asian Bread Wheat Germplasm
TLDR
The resistant accessions identified in this study could be used in production in South Asian countries as a preemptive strategy to prevent WB outbreak. Expand
Investigating the cell and developmental biology of plant infection by the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae.
TLDR
Live cell imaging approaches are applied to understanding the cell and developmental biology of rice blast disease by reviewing morphogenetic transitions of M. oryzae in the context of live cell imaging studies. Expand
Phytosanitary Interventions for Safe Global Germplasm Exchange and the Prevention of Transboundary Pest Spread: The Role of CGIAR Germplasm Health Units
TLDR
A unique multidisciplinary approach used by the CGIAR Germplasm Health Units in ensuring phytosanitary protection for the safe conservation and global movement of germplasm from the 11 CGIAR genebanks and breeding programs is described. Expand
From appressorium to transpressorium—Defining the morphogenetic basis of host cell invasion by the rice blast fungus
TLDR
The remarkable parallels between the biology of appressorium development and cell-to-cell movement are identified and evidence suggesting that a specialised infection cell—the transpressorium—is necessary for invasive growth is evaluated. Expand

TLDR
The current status of wheat blast research and disease control strategies indicating similarities and differences to rice blast and gray leaf spot are provided. Expand
Host/nonhost status and genetics of resistance in barley against three pathotypes of Magnaporthe blast fungi
TLDR
The authors' QTL and association mapping analyses do not support the association of the mlo resistance gene with enhanced susceptibility to M. oryzae as reported in literature, and suggest that rice is nonhost to this pathotype. Expand
Pyricularia blast - a threat to wheat cultivation.
TLDR
Due to an increase of the area under Milan based resistant wheat cultivars in Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguay, it needs to be combined with other sources of resistance urgently to prevent the selection of a virulent pathotype in the fungus. Expand
Genomics-Based Marker Discovery and Diagnostic Assay Development for Wheat Blast.
TLDR
A genomics-based approach was used to identify molecular markers unique to the Triticum pathotype of M. oryzae, and one of these markers, MoT3, was selected for the development of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based diagnostic assay that was evaluated for specificity using DNA from 284 M.Oryzae isolates collected from a diverse array of host species.
