Plant nematode problems and their control in the Near East region: proceedings of the Expert Consultation on Plant Nematode Problems and their Control in the Near East Region, Karachi, Pakistan, November (Book, )  Your list has reached the maximum number of items. The Expert Consultation on Plant Nematode Problems and their Control in the Near East Region was held from 22 to 26 November , in Karachi, Pakistan, and was jointly organized by the Near East Regional Office of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the National Nematological Research Centre (NNRC), University of Karachi. from book The handbook of plant problems and their control in the Near East region.

The emphasis of this volume is on plant parasites and insights gained through research on other nematodes. In particular, the book explains the anatomical, developmental, behavioral, and genetic studies on the free-living nematode Cenorhabditis elegans, which is a widely used laboratory model for examining various biological Edition: 1. Abstract. The nematophagous fungus Pochonia chlamydosporia (Clavicipitaceae) is a facultative parasite of major plant-parasitic nematodes pests such as cyst (Globodera spp., Heterodera spp.), root-knot (Meloidogyne spp.), false root-knot (Nacobbus spp.) and reniform (Rotylenchulus reniformis) potential of P. chlamydosporia as a biological control agent and Cited by: 1. Plant disease - Plant disease - Nematode diseases: Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne species) are well known because of the conspicuous “knots,” or gall-like swellings, they induce on roots. More than 2, kinds of higher plants are subject to their attack. Losses are often heavy, especially in warm regions with long growing seasons. Soil amendments used for nematode control can be placed into four categories: inorganics, animal-based, plant-based, and microbial. Except for inorganics (such as ammonium sulfate fertilizer and powdered rock), nematode suppression from most amendments is at least partly the result of biological control.
Plant-parasitic nematodes must be addressed in crop production and integrated pest management (IPM) systems if agriculture is to meet the world demands for increasing food and fibre production. On a worldwide basis, annual crop losses due to nematode damage have been estimated to average percent (Sasser and Freckman, ), amounting to. Using Plants for Nematode Control Nematodes are tiny round worms that commonly live in soil, and many of them attack garden plants. These pests can damage the roots of numerous edible and ornamental plants, so many gardeners have looked for ways to control them. More t species of nematodes have been described, including approximately 2, parasites of plants. Size and Shape Nematodes usually are regarded as being of microscopic size though a few species can be seen without magnification. Most plant-parasitic nematodes would range in size from to inch in length. Pochonia chlamydosporia (Goddard) Zare & W. Gams (Hypocreales, Clavicipitaceae), was first reported in as a parasite of nematode eggs by Wilcox and Tribe in the UK, the fungus subsequently becoming one of the most studied potential biological control agents of nematodes. Research conducted on this nematophagous fungus has been reviewed extensively elsewhere (Kerry, , Cited by:
