Bacterial panicle blight of rice (BPBR) is one of the most important diseases of rice; it seriously threatens the high and stable yield of rice in the world. Although the disease is still listed as a quarantine disease in China, recent studies have shown that BPBR can spread at any time. Therefore, in addition to strengthening quarantine work, targeted control technology research is needed. During the process of infection, Burkholderia glumae has evolved multiple virulence factors. However, at the same time, rice has evolved a variety of defense mechanisms during the long-term interaction between rice and pathogens. Resistance genes are one of the main defense mechanisms. Therefore, mining the resistance locus of BPBR on the rice genome and breeding resistant varieties is the safest and most effective way to control the disease. To provide references for excavation and separation resistance sites, this paper reviews the pathogenic characteristics, pathogenesis, disease cycle and rice resistance to BPBR.
