Abstract:

Rice tungro is a neglected disease because it is restricted mostly to developing countries in South and Southeast Asia. For the past half century, IRRI has been making tremendous efforts to alleviate the problems associated with tungro. However, tungro still remains a persistent obstacle to intensified rice production in Asia. This presentation will address the track record (ethos) of IRRI in tungro research, the frustration (pathos) of farmers who have been left behind, and the promising management options (logos) IRRI can offer to encourage more people to engage in holistic efforts toward the successful management of tungro.
