Hint:Red stripe, an emerging epidemic of rice, has been recognised in recent times in intensive rice-production practices in tropical Asia. It also is recognised in Vietnam as yellow leaf infection, yellow leaf disease, and leaf yellowing syndrome, and in Indonesia as bacterial reddish leaf disease.

Complete answer:
Before we find out the correct option let us know a little about Red stripe disease. The disease normally happens when the plants enter the generative stage, beginning from panicle beginning. High warmth, high relative moisture, high leaf wetness, and high nitrogen amount favour disease growth.

Option A: Pythium aphanidermatum is a fungal infection produced by the soil-borne pathogen. It is the most popular and serious illness in tobacco plantations making the death of seedlings. Therefore, this is an incorrect option.

Option B: Late blight is a possibly severe infection of potato and tomato, produced by the fungus Phytophthora infestans. The late disease is particularly damaging throughout the cold, wet climate. The mould can attack all plant parts. Therefore, this is an incorrect option.

Option C: Citrus canker, produced by the bacteria Xanthomonas citri which attacks the petals, branches and fruit of citrus plants making the petals to drop and immature fruit to fall to the soil. Therefore, this is an incorrect option.

Option D: Red stripe or Red rot syndrome is produced by the fungus Glomerella tucumanensis in Sugarcane. Symptoms involve, the interior tissues are coloured with combined transverse white spots, the spindle gives display drying. At a later step, stalks grow discoloured and deep, etc. Therefore this is the correct option.

Thus, the correct answer is option (D) Sugarcane

Note:Red stripe is the most typical complication of sugarcane, produced by the fungus Colletotrichum falcatum Went. It causes drastic loss in yield and nature of the sensitive cultivars in the Indian subcontinent. It can decrease cane weight by up to 29% and loss of sugar replacement by 31%.
