Therefore, the objective is to study the incidence and severity of rice sheath blight and the factor contribute to the occurrence of sheath blight disease. The disease incidence and severity are effected by several factor which are fertilizer application, fungicide application, soil pH and soil type, planting method and climatic condition. A survey has been carried out at several area of Tanjong Karang in early April. A pipe 1m x 1m was used to measure placed randomly on the quadrant. All the data were observed and recorded. From the result showed that Field B has the highest average incidence and severity with 30.92% and 61.78% respectively whilst the second highest average is Field C with incidence 29.51% and severity 58.22%.
