Numerous other fungicides have been tested for blast control with varying levels of activity (Table 5), but none are approaching registration at this time. BRon SPOT Of the presently labeled fungicides, only iprodione has significant activity against the brown spot disease (Fig. 3). The other fungicides suppress brown spot slightly but not enough to be significant. Under normal (unstressed rice) conditions in the field, bro~n spot is not a problem and the poor activity of these fungicides should not be a deterrent to their use.
