Brown spot

Spatial patterns of brown spot lesions in rice leaves

Our recent article demonstrates the combined use of digital analysis and various spatial pattern techniques to study lesion distribution at the leaf scale. The study was conducted by my former M.Sc. student, André Aguiar Schwanck, currently a doctorate student at Toulouse France.

Project report and publications: seed-borne inoculum for rice brown spot

Finally, after two years we ended a multi-institutional project entitled “Epidemiological basis for risk management and tolerance thresholds of Bipolaris oryzae in rice produced in Rio Grande do Sul state”, which was funded by a specific call for studying the impact of seed-borne pathogens (CNPq Edital 422009), we got a few papers published in both scientific journals and technical magazines.
