Research Project: Risk assessment of emerging diseases caused by Pantoea spp. on rice, peanut, & corn in the USA in Collaboration with Texas A&M University-Beaumont

Location: Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center

Project Number: 6028-21000-012-010-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 1, 2023
End Date: May 31, 2024

To investigate distribution, relatedness and pathogenicity of Pantoea in rice, corn, peanut in Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma.

The collaborator at Texas A&M AgriLife Research Center, Beaumont, Texas, will conduct disease surveys for Pantoea in rice across the Texas Rice Belt and screening for resistant germplasm. This will involve identifying rice genotypes including new varieties and elite breeding lines that are resistant to Pantoea and evaluating their potential for use in rice breeding programs.
