An improved technique for clearing and staining plant tissues for detection of nematodes.
TLDR
A modified acid-fuchsin staining-destaining wocedure utilizing NaOC1 as a prestaining for nematode-infected plant tissues is described herein. Expand
Two semi-automatic elutriators for extracting nematodes and certain fungi from soil.
TLDR
Two efficient, semi-automatic elutriators for assaying soil samples for nematodes are described and show promise for monitoring populations of certain other soil microorganisms. Expand
Influences of organic and synthetic soil fertility amendments on nematode trophic groups and community dynamics under tomatoes
TLDR
Examination of the effects of organic and synthetic soil amendments and tillage on nematode communities in field soils planted to tomato found that nematodes in these trophic groups decreased through time in each year, and Shannon’s diversity index decreased over time for both years at one location, regardless of soil amendment. Expand
Developing sustainable systems for nematode management.
TLDR
The systems focusing on soil biology hold great promise for sustainable crop-nematode management, but only a few research programs are currently involved in this labor-intensive endeavor. Expand
Impact of Soil Texture on the Reproductive and Damage Potentials of Rotylenchulus reniformis and Meloidogyne incognita on Cotton.
The effects of soil type and initial inoculum density (Pi) on the reproductive and damage potentials of Meloidogyne incognita and Rotylenchulus reniformis on cotton were evaluated in microplotExpand
Soybean Photosynthesis and Yield as Influenced by Heterodera glycines, Soil Type and Irrigation.
TLDR
Yield restriction of soybean in response to this pathogen under irrigation was equal to or greater than the yield suppression under dry conditions, and supplemental irrigation cannot be used to circumvent nematode damage to soybean. Expand
PENETRATION RATES OF ROOT-KNOT NEMATODES INTO CUCUMIS SATIVUS AND C. METULIFERUS ROOTS AND SUBSEQUENT HISTOLOGICAL CHANGES
TLDR
Although giant cells develop after root-knot nematode penetration in resistant Cucumis roots, resistance is most likely associated with feeding site development as the giant cells in resistant roots tended to be elongated in shape. Expand
