Applicable solutions against rice blast in Asia

 
Rationale
Blast (Pyricularia oryzae Cavara) is one of the most serious diseases in all cultivating areas of rice (Oryza sativa L.) from temperate to tropical countries. It can be estimated to cause damage equivalent to 2 billion US$ (1% of rice production) annually. JIRCAS has led “Rice Blast Research Network” for years and accumulated important knowledge to tackle with this complex issue to assure stable production and environmentally friendly agriculture at the same time. Recently, a wide range of molecular studies identified some pathogenic mechanisms, however, technologies which are not yet widely applicable are not sufficiently studied. This workshop will encourage practical technology development based on the scientific results accumulated so far, through discussions among scientists as well as practitioners. This proposal is directly connected to theme 4: ‘Environmentally friendly technologies’ of the FFTC’s Strategic Action Plan. It also fits well for the mandates of organizers, considering global/trans-boundary nature of this issue.
 
Objectives
  • To exchange knowledge on the recent advancement in rice blast research and experiences of its field application with a strong emphasis on the effective control of the disease.
  • To strengthen international cooperation towards the development of effective and applicable technologies to deal with rice blast.
  • To suggest future directions in rice blast research and the roles of public and private entities towards the effective control of the disease.
Themes
  • Review of the recent advancement in the area of rice blast research.
  • Share the experiences of the successful practices for controlling rice blast.
  • Breeding solutions towards the effective control of rice blast.
  • Agronomic solutions towards the effective control of rice blast.
  • Integrated solutions towards the effective control of rice blast.
  • Future directions for the effective international collaboration.
  • Travel and visit-research facilities and/or fields relating to rice blast in Japan.
  • Others.
