Abstract

As the most devastating viral disease of rice in South and Southeast Asia, rice tungro disease remains one of the significant fears to sustainable annual rice productions in the world. Due to the increasing world population and subsequent increase in demand for food, identifying the causal agents and symptoms of disease and the methods of disease management are key to understanding how to reduce the economic damage caused by rice pathogens. In this review, we described the current state of knowledge of rice tungro disease caused by two morphologically and genomically dissimilar viruses: Rice tungro bacilliform virus and Rice tungro spherical virus. This includes genome structure, transmission, symptoms, diagnostic methods and biological control of the disease.
