In agriculture soil, the influence of soil's environment on nematode's dynamics is considered to be the second most important factor after the host plant [24, 9].
The completion of this study allowed us to identify sixteen genera of nematode in ten vineyards of western Algeria represented by: Pratylenchus, Paratylenchus, Scutellonema, Tylenchorhynchus, Xiphinema, Helicotylenchus, Aphelenchoides, Aphelenchus, Ditylenchus, Psilenchus, Tylenchus Rhabditis, Cephalobus, Chiloplacus, Mononchus and Dorylaimus.
reniformis was the most abundant nematode in the general area (Table 1).
In this study, it was identified a number of potentially harmful nematode species in the rhizospheres of the plants selected for analysis.
Chemical giant BASF has the largest specialist nematode production facility in the EU and the only one in the UK, breeding trillions of up to five different species of beneficial nematode to create its Nemasys range, and now has products which will treat many common soil-dwelling pests including vine weevil, chafer grubs, slugs, leatherjackets and ant nests.
Many organic gardeners have been using nematodes for years.
proved effective in killing both borer species.
infection can result in different above-ground symptoms in plants such as leaf chlorosis, patchy and stunted growth, wilting and susceptibility to other pathogens (Webster, 1995).
A number of researchers also reported that the type of soil also greatly influenced nematode
populations in a certain area (Wallace, 1969; Prot and van Gundy, 1981).
Pheronym enables sustainable farming through its novel platform of nematode
Our results showed 727/1000 samples positive for nematode
species, thus, indicating 72.7% prevalence in the region.
A total of 50 observations were made, 5 minutes each, but no regular behavioral patterns were noted with respect to the nematode
and fungus was also inoculated carefully adding the homogenous suspension of the two pathogens at the root zone of the plants, as per treatment.
At necropsy, adult filarial nematodes
57-75 mm in length and 0.4-0.7 mm in width were found in the hepatic veins.
