Fast, efficient and accurate detection of viral infection in rice

Philippine Rice Research Institute with the support of the Department of Agriculture-Biotechnology Program is testing the faster and better method of virus detection called loop-mediated isothermal amplification assay (LAMP) in rice plants to help the farmers detect the viral diseases before the appearance of symptoms. With this method, timely pest management systems could be delivered and pesticides’ expenditure could be reduced.
