Abstract:

Rice is staple food for more than half of the world’s population. The fast growth of the world population demands an increase of 26 % in rice production to fulfill the requirement. The rice blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae is considered to be the most significant and potentially damaging rice disease in the world and has been responsible for 35 to 50 % global loss in rice yield causing serious constraint in global food supply. High genetic variability of rice blast pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae gives challenge to plant breeders for breeding durable resistant varieties against blast because frequent breakdown of resistance cause yield instability in several rice growing areas. This review includes the different types of strategies used and role of molecular marker assisted breeding for improving durable resistance in rice for blast disease.


Keywords: Rice Blast, Magnaporthe oryzae, Blast resistance.
