Abstract:

Rice blast disease are a serious and recurrent problem in all rice-growing regions of the worldwide, and the disease is extremely difficult to control. Rice blast caused by Pyricularia oryzae and it is control by two methods i.e. chemical control and biological control. The present study was aimed to explore the potential of bacterial consortia that may control rice blast disease on rice plants. In this study, the rice blast disease has control by the various bacterial cultures and their consortium i.e. Bacillus subtilis, bacillus cereus, streptomyces griseocarneus, streptomyces albidoflavus, and combination for their suppression ability against P. oryzae under in-vitro conditions and green house in GKU campus. The results showed that streptomyces albidoflavus (A1) and combination of streptomyces albidoflavus, Bacillus subtilis and bacillus cereus (A1 + A3 + A4) significantly reduced the mycelial growth of P. oryzae with the percentage inhibition of 55.3%-24.3% and 90.0%-89.0%, respectively.
