Heterodera Avenae: Virulence and Resistance

Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 121)


Cereals and grasses are damaged by several species of cyst forming nematodes. One species, Heterodera avenae Woll. (the oat nematode = cereal root eelworm), is common in countries in Northwest Europe, and is found in Canada, North Africa, India and Australia. Control is possible by use of resistant cultivars, but different pathotypes are found, and the resistance of a cultivar must correspond to the pathotype of the nematode.
