The article focuses on management and impact of bacterial grain rot outbreaks on rice. The disease originated from Burkholderia glumae, a microorganism that damaged rice panicles in the Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan in 1955, where the bacterial grain rot generated rice harvest losses. The impact of bacterial grain rot outbreaks were measured based on factors including host susceptibility, inoculum density, and humidity.
