In India, loss in grain yield have been estimated in the range of 23.9 to 31.9 percent (Lal et al. 1980), but when ear rot phase predominates losses in grain yield can go up to 100 percent. In South China also 57.8 to 87.5 per cent yield loss was recorded in hybrid maize (Zhang et al. 1993). The genetic variability in maize for resistance to BLSB is limited and hence selection of disease resistance germplasm has been considered important for utilizing in resistance-breeding programme.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
