Rice yellow mottle virus (RYMV) disease, is essentially restricted to the African continent. It is the most important disease on rice in the United Republic of Tanzania (comprising both mainland Tanzania and the islands of Zanzibar). To minimise yield lost to the disease, a thorough knowledge of the epidemiology of the virus and the vector biology/ecology are required. This review therefore puts together the fragment information already available on RYMV epidemiology and vector biology/ecology in Tanzania, with emphasis on progress made and where effort is still required.
