AIMS To understand the diversity, taxonomy and antagonistic potential of rice-associated bacteria, and to discover new bacteria for biocontrol of rice foliar pathogens. METHODS AND RESULTS Amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis (ARDRA), BOX-PCR and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis were used to identify the diversity of 203 rice-associated antagonistic bacteria. Eleven potential biocontrol bacteria were used to test their biological control of rice blast in a natural field experiment… CONTINUE READING
