A roving survey was carried out during Kharif 2014 and 2015 in different rice growing taluks of North-eastern Karnataka to ascertain the stem rot disease of rice. Disease was recorded in all the surveyed location in both 2014 and 2015. In Kharif 2014, the mean disease incidence of taluks was ranged from 12.35 to 29.55 percent whereas; it was 4.78 to14.33 during Kharif 2015. The highest disease incidence of 29.55 and 14.33 percent was observed in Gangavathi taluk during Kharif 2014 and 2015 respectively. All the cultivated varieties were infected with the disease in bth transplanted and direct seeded cropping system, indicating its wider distributioon in the North-eastern paddy ecosystems of Karnataka. The information generated could be useful for prioritising the research to reduce the impact of stem rot disease and also to check its further development to cause disease epidemics.
