Louisiana Plant Pathology: Sampling for Plant-parasitic Nematodes

Charles Overstreet, Singh, Raghuwinder, Mcgawley, Edward C.

Because most of the injury occurs to plant roots, recognizing nematode symptoms is often very difficult.. This publication includes information on nematodes, plant symptoms, field size and the soil sampling procedure. (PDF format only)
