Nematode Pests of Leguminous and Oilseed Crops
Although nematode research focused mainly on groundnut and soybean, information for Bambara groundnut, cowpea, dry bean, lupin and sunflower is presented, and of particular interest are discussions on root-knot nematodes resistance breeding in soybean and the development of molecular markers to expedite the breeding process.
The oxygen consumption rates of different life stages of the endoparasitic nematode

Resistance to Ditylenchus africanus present in peanut breeding lines.
The breeding line PC287K5 maintained low nematode numbers in some trials, but its level of resistance was not as strong or as sustainable as that of PC254K1 or CG7, but it could still play an important role in the peanut industry where lower D. africanus populations occur.
FINAL PROGRESS REPORT FOR THE PERIOD: 1 JAN-30 SEPT 2017 OF PROJECT FUNDED BY THE MAIZE TRUST PRODUCTION SYSTEMS ON SANDY SOILS
First report of groundnut genotypes resistant to the groundnut-pod nematode Ditylenchus africanus
Identification of groundnut genotypes resistant to the groundnut-pod nematode Ditylenchus africanus
PC254K as an alternative management against Ditylenchus africanus on groundnut
. Reproduction of Ditylenchus africanus populations on callus tissue resistant, tolerant and susceptible groundnut genotypes
Differential responses of resistant and susceptible groundnut genotypes at cellular level to Ditylenchus africanus
The mechanism of resistance involved may be the inhibition of proper development, migration and reproduction of this nematode, thus preventing it building up to damaging population levels, according to results of this study.
