  • Description
  • Details

This book will be useful to a range of professionals including growers, farmers and students working in crop protection, plant pathology, and agriculture.

The microscopic soil and plant nematodes, generally not visible to the naked eye, that are parasitic on crop plants can be very damaging,. Because of their microscopic size associating them with crop damage is therefore mainly dependent on determining the symptoms of their effects on plants or plant growth. The damage and symptoms caused can be visible above ground but, apart from poor growth and yield of the plants, the specific nematode can only be seen in the below ground in the plant organs, mainly the roots, rhizomes, bulbs, corms and tubers.

This book aims to help people working commercially with crop plants to identify and improve their diagnosis of nematodes of agricultural importance. There is an introductory chapter on their biology and parasitism and the crops they are likely to attack. Crop chapters are divided into grain legumes, vegetables, flower crops, cereals, root and tuber crops, tree and plantation crops. Coverage includes their distribution, identification, symptoms and diagnosis, with management suggestions. A final chapter outlines common methods used in nematology.
