Plant-parasitic nematodes are one of multiple causes of soil-related sub-optimal crop performance. This book integrates soil health and sustainable agriculture with nematode ecology and suppressive services provided by the soil food web to provide holistic solutions. Biological control is an important component of all nematode management Format: Paperback. Genre/Form: Classification: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Sumenkova, N.I. (Nadezhda Ivanovna). Nematodes of plants and soils. New Delhi: Oxonian Press. Nematodes of plants and soils: Neotylenchoidea Author: N I Sumenkova ; Gelʹmintologicheskai︠a︡ laboratorii︠a︡ (Akademii︠a︡ nauk SSSR) ; United States. The soils in a hectare of all agroecosystem typically contains billions of plant-parasitic as well as beneficial nematodes. The damage to plants caused by nematodes often is overlooked because the associated symptoms, including slow growth, stunting, and yellowing also can be attributed to nutritional and water-related disorders.

Nematodes of plants and soils: genus Ditylenchus = (Nematody rastenii i pochvy: rod ditilenkhus). [V G Gubina; United States. Office for International Cooperation and Development.; United States. Agricultural Research Service.;]. Nematodes also move and occur vertically in soils toward plant roots, but distance moved is dependent on species, soil temperature, soil type, and soil moisture. In deserts, nematodes are associated with plant roots to depths of 15 m as are mites and other biota (Freckman and Virginia, ). This book contains 22 chapters, 2 appendices (of the nematicides and species mentioned throughout the book) and 24 colour plates covering all aspects of practical plant nematology in subtropical and tropical agriculture, including rice, cereals, sweet potatoes, root and tuber crops, food legumes, vegetables, groundnut, citrus, tree and fruit crops.
Nematodes are important: parasitic nematodes threaten the health of plants, animals and humans on a global scale; interstitial nematodes pervade sediment and soil ecosystems in overwhelming Author: George Poinar. soil environment, such as moisture and temperature Most of the plant-pathogenic nematodes (referred to sim-ply as nematodes from here) feed on plant roots, although some less common ones feed in various aboveground plant parts. The root-feeding nematodes are either ectoparasites (Figure ), which feed from outside the root, or endoparasitesFile Size: 2MB. Nematodes are common soil pests that affect plants. The aboveground symptoms of disease caused by nematodes can be difficult to detect, and may be often confused with symptoms of nutrient deficiency. Typically, plants do not thrive, are paler than normal, and may wilt in the heat of the day. If you think your plants are infected, dig up a plant, rinse the soil off the roots and inspect them. Nematodes present as tumour-like growths on the roots, which may be tiny or take over the.
