Since the mid 1960s, rice tungro virus disease has had a serious economic impact on rice production in South-East Asia. Although the frequency and intensity of outbreaks have declined since their peak in the late 1960s and early 1970s, occasional major epidemics do sill occur, often associated with changes in agronomic practices. Epidemiology and Management of Rice Tungro Disease is the outcome of a workshop held in Malaysia where researchers including representatives from five major rice producing countries met to discuss the present status of the disease and the progress of research into its management. The publication outlines current options for integrated management of tungro and critically reassesses vector control strategies. The book will be of interest to scientists and officials from national agricultural departments who have to make decisions on the management of this important disease.
