Fifty-one isolates of Xanthomonas oryzae collected from all over the Korean paddy field were classified as the eight different strains by using four different bacteriophage types. Strain-F was the most prevalent form and strain-H,C, and A followed the strain-F, respectively. Strain-D, however, had not found even single isolate although the strain·D is the most prevalent form at Japan and southern countries of Asia. There was no corelation between the type of strains and the area front which the strain had been collected. Six different types of strains were isolated from IR 667 varieties whereas the three strains were maximum that could isolated from single variety other than IR 667.
