Abstract

Accurate and reliable identification of plant parasitic nematodes is fundamental to many aspects of their effective management. Control programmes using either resistant cultivars or crop rotation are usually directed at specific species of parasitic nematodes. Since different species of a particular genus are important pathogens on different crops, the species present in a field must be accurately and often rapidly identified. The same speed and reliability in the identification of races would be helpful. Biochemical analyses offers accurate, reliable and repid identification of nematode species and races.
