Gyamera-Antwi, Kumasi, Ghana: 'Your article captioned New horizons hr. African rice that appeared in Spore 64 of July-August edition gave much useful information on rice production in Africa. Readers' hopes and aspirations were raised when the article further highlighted the efforts that WARDA is making to release new varieties in 1997 that will be resistant to RYMV. This is a laudable effort indeed. Since the virus disease is new in Africa, a more realistic approach should be adopted in educating the rice farmers on the symptoms, epidiomology and economic importance of the virus so that if the disease strikes, necessary precautionary measures will be adopted to arrest the situation before it gets out of hand. It is in the light of this that an extension bulletin on RYMV should be produced to serve as extension guide to enlighten rice farmers on RYMV.'
