A Review on Predicting Outbreak of Tungro Disease in Rice Fields Based on Epidemiological and Biophysical Factors

Salwani Mohd Daud, Hossein Jafari Jozani, and Farnaz Arab
Abstract— This paper reviews on tungro disease predictive technique in rice fields. The success of a monitoring system can be measured by its ability to provide early detection of pests for prevention of a serious outbreak of rice tungro. This paper also discusses on spectral reflectance data of epidemiological and biophysical factors that are related to tungro outbreak and also propose using these data along with an algorithm to predict probability of tungro disease occurrence. This information then could be used in agricultural decision support system for taking actions according to the level of threats that have been predicted.

Index Terms— Tungro, rice disease, spectral reflectance data, prediction, decision support system.
