A leaf spot of rye (Secale cereale L.) was observed during the summer 1999 in Korea. A fungus associated with the disease was identified as Bipolaris sorokiniana (Sacc.) Shoem., based on the morphological characteristics of conidia and conidiophores. Pathogenicity of the fungus was proven by artificial inoculation on rye plants. This is the first record of leaf spot on rye caused by B. sorokiniana in Korea.
