Wild rice domestication, fungal brown spot disease, and the future of commercial production in Minnesota.

D. R. Johnson, J. A. Percich

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Following an outline of the taxonomy of wild rice (Zizania palustris), the development of the commercial wild rice industry in Minnesota, USA, and the aetiology, disease cycle and epidemiology of fungal brown spot, caused by Cochliobolus miyabeanus and C. sativus, the factors that have made the disease a serious threat to the industry are discussed.
