What is it about?

the action mechanism of bactericide

Why is it important?

Bismerthiazol provides excellent control of bacterial rice leaf blight (BLB) caused by Xoo but does not greatly inhibit Xoo growth in vitro. The results indicate that bismerthiazol reduces Xoo virulence by inhibiting the Hut pathway and QS.
