PRO/PL> Blast & undiagnosed rust, wheat – Bangladesh: (RP)

Other Plant Disease — Bangladesh
Both wheat and rice blast are caused by the fungus _Pyricularia oryzae_ (synonym _Magnaporthe oryzae_).

Over 50 species of grasses and sedges can be affected by related fungal strains, each of which generally appears to affect only a limited number of host species. Further work is
