Bacterial leaf blight (BLB) is one of the most devastating diseases
affecting rice production.

In a previous study, the research team identified the role of
nanomaterials in guarding against stresses and summarized their
application prospects in rice production. Taking off from the results of
that study, the team bioengineered chitosan-iron nanocomposites (BNCs)
and assessed their bactericidal activity against/Xanthomonas oryzae pv.
oryzae/(Xoo), which causes BLB. They found that BNCs could effectively
impede the activity of Xoo. Thus, BNCs could be used as an alternative
and efficient method in plant disease management.

Scientists from Zhejiang University usednanotechnologyto manage
bacterial leaf blight disease in rice. The results are published in the
