2013) concluded that coarse rice varieties especially IRRI-6 and KSK-133 are resistant to bakanae disease
as compared to fine rice varieties.

It was later found that the fungus Gibberella fujikuroi was responsible for the Bakanae disease. In 1935, a Japanese scientist named Yabuta isolated and crystallized the active component secreted by the fungus, and he called the compound Gibberellin A.
The fungus called Gibberella fujikuroi was shown to cause the Bakanae disease. In 1935, Yabuta isolated and crystallized the active component secreted by the fungus and called this compound Gibberellin A.
