Samba : Protector Of Rice
Hundreds of millions of people world-wide depend on rice as a staple food. The production of rice is increased quantitatively and qualitatively then it will generate additional income sources. Rice crops suffer from infection of many bacterial, viral and fungal diseases. Thus, decreasing the annual production of rice in many countries of the world. Among these rice disease rice blast harms more then other diseases. Rice blast, caused by a fungus, causes lesions to form on leaves, stems, peduncles, panicles, seeds, and even roots. So great is the potential threat for crop failure from this disease that it has been ranked among the most important plant diseases of them all. Rice blast can affect most of the rice plant with the exception of the roots. The fungus can infect plants at any growth stage.
Symptoms and Signs
The side effects of rice impact incorporate sores that can be found on all parts of the plant, including leaves, leaf collars, necks, panicles, pedicels, and seeds.Now it is observed that even roots can become infected. However, the most common and diagnostic symptom, diamond shaped lesions, of rice blast occur on the leaves, whereas lesions on the sheaths aregenerally uncommon.
Rice leaves. The symptoms on leaves may shift as per the natural conditions, the age of the plant, and the levels of obstruction of the host cultivars On vulnerable cultivars, sores may at first seem dim green and water-drenched with a darker green fringe and they extend quickly to a few centimeters long. On defenseless cultivars, more seasoned sores frequently turn out to be light tan in color with necrotic borders. On resistant cultivars, lesions often remain small in size (1-2 mm) and brown to dark brown in color.
Rice collars. The collar of a rice plant alludes to the intersection of the leaf and the stem sheath. Side effects of disease of the collars comprise of a general territory of rot at the association of the two tissues . collar contaminations can execute the whole leaf and may expand a couple of millimeters into and around the sheath. The parasite may create spores on these injuries.
Rice necks and panicles. The neck of the rice plant alludes to that part of the stem that ascents over the leaves and backings the seed head or panicle. Necks are frequently contaminated at the hub by the rice impact growth and disease prompts a condition called spoiled neck or neck impact . Disease of the necks can be extremely dangerous, making disappointment of the seeds fill or making the whole panicle fall over as though decayed. The rice impact parasite can likewise taint the panicles as the seeds frame . Injuries can be found on the panicle branches, spikes, and spikelets. The sores are frequently dark brown stains of the parts of the panicle, and, after some time, the branches may break at the injury.
Rice Seeds . The fungus has often been isolated from the pedicels of the seeds. Seeds are not produced when pedicels become infected, a condition called blanking. Symptoms of rice blast on seeds themselves consist of brown spots, blotches , and occasionally the classic diamond-shaped lesion often seen on leaves. The process and the time during which infection of seeds by spores of the pathogen occurs has not been fully described but recent information shows that the fungus can infect seeds by infecting the florets as they mature into seeds, and it is believed that this is the main way seed infection develops.
Every time farmers think how can they prevent their rice crop from blast. But not worry HPM’s Samba is the prudent answer for blast . It is a systemic fungicide with protective and curative action. Absorbed by the leaves and roots, with translocation acropetally and basipetally. Effective internal absorption bactericide, with special good effect for Rice neck blast & Rice leaf blast. Also used on rice to accelerate rooting, promote root elongation and control non-parasitic damping . Samba effectively protects the developing rice leaves from invasion and spread of the blast disease fungus . Suppress the penetration of the fungus and inhibits the elongation of the infection hyphae of the fungus. Inhibits sporulation of lesions caused by the blast fungus of rice leaves.
