Summary Using a novel approach based on melting peak analysis of PCR products, we have developed a semi-quantitative assay to measure the relative proportions of Globodera pallida and Globodera rostochiensis in a sample of potato cyst nematodes (PCN). The method depends on a competitive multiplex PCR where the products of each species can be separated by(More)

Undamaged and damaged tubers of 10 cultivars were inoculated withPhoma foveata by two methods at five test centres over three years. Damaging tubers before inoculation increased the discrimination between cultivars. While this increase was small with tubers rolled in cornmealsand cultures, it was often substantial with those dipped in a suspension of(More)
