Bacterial leaf streak caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc) is a rice disease emerging in West Africa. Its emergence is correlated with the recent expansion of rice cultivation and the introduction of new rice varieties. Our goal is to identify resistance sources to control BLS in rice. We evaluated six Oryza sativa and two Oryza glaberrima accessions for resistance to bacterial leaf streak under greenhouse conditions. Three week-old plants were inoculated with different Xoc strains… CONTINUE READING
