Individual plants at maturity stage were scored for the presence/absence of sorus in either ear or tassels as an indicator for susceptibility/resistance, and the mean percent disease incidence using averaged three replicate data was subjected for further analysis, where 0~5% highly resistant, 5~20% resistant, 20~50% susceptible and over 50% highly susceptible.
The stalk supports a round structure called a sorus, and the sorus contains spores.
After these "farmer" amoebae aggregate into a slug, they migrate in search of nourishment-and form a fruiting body, or a stalk of dead amoebae topped by a sorus, a structure containing fertile spores.
The spores are produced in sporangia, and many sporangia are grouped together in a region to make up a sorus.
It is also useful in abdominal disorders, ben-ben and sorus, head ache, joint pains, leucoderma, liver disorders,paralysis, ulcers etc.

Electronic Information for Libraries (eIFL) is a particularly good example, eIFL was formed in 1999 as a joint project of the Sorus Foundation's Open Society Institute and EBSCO publishing, with the aim of fostering library consortia and e-content services in countries with limited online information infrastructure, eIFL has developed into an independent consortium providing e-content services in forty developing countries, particularly in Eastern Europe and Africa (Electronic Information for Libraries, n.
7 x 15-40 mm; a single sorus has one central columella of host tissue and an early rupturing peridium.
Following the work of Good (1981), sporangial maturation within a sorus is interpreted as simultaneous rather than gradate, as interpreted earlier (Holmes, 1981).
