New Invasive Plant Parasitic Nematode In Europe
2013-12-30 08:56:12

Pensoft Publishers Following its recent synonymization with Meloidogyne ulmi, a species known to parasitize elm trees in Europe, it has become clear that M. mali has been in the Netherlands for more than fifty years. Evidences given by the authors suggest that M. mali was probably introduced during the breeding program on Elms against the Dutch Elm Disease (DED) during which large numbers of Elm rootstocks and seeds were imported from several different countries. The study was published...

Planting tall fescue grass as a ground cover in peach orchards helps protect peach trees from nematodes that attack tree roots, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists. In a study published in the Journal of Nematology in 2010, Agricultural Research Service (ARS) plant pathologists Andy Nyczepir at the Southeastern Fruit and Tree Nut Research Laboratory in Byron, Ga., and Susan Meyer at the Nematology Laboratory in Beltsville, Md., tested several tall fescue varieties...

North Carolina State University scientists and colleagues have completed the genome sequence and genetic map of one of the world's most common and destructive plant parasites "“ Meloidogyne hapla, a microscopic, soil-dwelling worm known more commonly as the northern root-knot nematode. The research could help lead to a new generation of eco-friendly tools to manage the ubiquitous parasitic worm, which, along with other species of root-knot nematode, causes an estimated $50 billion in...

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Identification of soils that inhibit a tiny soybean-destroying organism is an important tool in reducing yield losses, according to a Purdue University plant pathologist. Soybean cyst nematodes cause between $800 million and $1 billion annually in crop losses in the United States, according the American Phytopathological Society. However, techniques are available to find soils that specifically suppress these microscopic roundworms, said Andreas Westphal, assistant...

Cotton Root-knot Nematode, Meloidogyne incognita
2014-01-12 00:00:00

The common root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita), also known as the southern root-knot nematode, is a species of roundworm that infects plants. It can be found across the world and infects a number of different hosts. It resides in the root system of the host plant, creating gnarled roots and galls. This species travels through more shallow temperature gradients than other organisms. This is known as thermotaxis and is thought to be the system in which these worms locate the best soil...
