Bipolaris sacchari (weed pathogen) (E.J. Butler) Shoemaker 1959

This fungus is a pathogen of various crops (see Bipolaris sacchari crop pathogen). However, it has been also studied as a possible biological control agent against the weed Imperata cylindrica, on which it causes a severe foliar blight (Yandoc et al., 2004).
