Economic Impact of Nematodes

  • Annual crop losses to world agriculture-est $100b and $8b in US
  • Some of most damaging pests of tropical, sub-tropical and temperate agriculture.
  • Root - knot nematodes (RKN) are the most destructive world wide

What are nematodes?

  • Small microscopic worm-shaped animals (0.5-10mm)
  • Other shapes (round, pear shaped)
  • 25% infect animals and plants
  • High fecundity & short life cycle
  • Occupy every habitat (freshwater, marine, brackish, terrestrial)
  • Numerical dominant - 80,000sp

  1. 15/11/2018 This session aims at discussing simple and yet effective agronomic practices for most vegetable crops that discourage the buildup of plant - parasitic nematodes and other soil borne pathogens in the soil. These agronomic practices range from timely watering or irrigation of crops, use of...

  4. 20/04/2002 Plant-parasitic nematodes are a problem for farmers throughout the tropics and subtropics. Most species of nematodes are not actually plant or animal parasites, but the ones that are parasitic make up a small but important minority.
  5. 19/10/1994 Information about nematodes affecting agroforestry trees. Nematodes are tiny “wire worms” that abound in the soil. The root-knot nematode,Meloidogyne incognita, is one of the most infamous, both for its devastating effect on crops and the ease with which its presence can be identified. The...
