Effects of plant phenylpropanoid pathway products and selected terpenoids and alkaloids on the behaviour of the plant-parasitic nematodes Radopholus similis, Pratylenchus penetrans and Meloidogyne
Plants produce a wide range of biologically active chemicals which have been extensively explored for nematode-antagonistic properties. Although phenylpropanoids are part of the chemical defenceExpand
Transfection and transformation of Agrobacterium tumefaciens
SummaryThe freeze thaw transfection procedure of Dityatkin et al. (1972) was adapted for the transfection and transformation of A. tumefaciens. Transfection of the strains B6S3 and B6-6 with DNA ofExpand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi induce systemic resistance in tomato against the sedentary nematode Meloidogyne incognita and the migratory nematode Pratylenchus penetrans
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are able to protect plants against a range of soil-borne pathogens, but the biocontrol modes of action remain largely unknown, especially in the case ofExpand
Nematode pests threatening soybean production in South Africa, with reference to Meloidogyne
The area planted to soybean in South Africa has increased by 54% since the 2009 growing season, mainly as a result of the increasing demand for protein-rich food and fodder sources. Moreover, theExpand
Screening of Musa germplasm for resistance and tolerance to nematodes
Ce guide technique vise a demontrer l'interet de selectionner les bananiers selon leur degre de resistance ou de tolerance aux nematodes. De plus, il propose une methodologie testee et eprouvee lorsExpand
Effect of time and inoculum density on the reproductive fitness of Pratylenchus coffeae and Radopholus similis populations on carrot disks
The reproductive fitness of three Pratylenchus coffeae populations (Honduras, Ghana and Vietnam) and three Radopholus similis populations (Costa Rica, Cuba and Ghana) on carrot disks was studied as aExpand
Effect of agro-ecosystem on the occurrence of the rice root-knot nematode Meloidogyne graminicola on rice in Myanmar
Two surveys were carried out during 2009. The first survey was during the dry summer season (mid-January to mid-May) in 450 rice fields from ten regions representing the summer-irrigated, lowlandExpand
