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. Expand
Detection and Diagnosis of Seed-Borne and Seed-Associated Nematodes
For the identification of pest-free area, production of certified seeds, and promotion of export quality raw plant products, detection of seed and seed-associated nematodes is very essential and is always considered as primary step for crop protection. Expand
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.

Reproduction and Damage Potential of Five Geographical Ditylenchus africanus Populations on Peanut.
Reproduction potential of all five of the D. africanus geographic populations from five different areas in the peanut production area of South Africa were compared and Resistance of PC254K1 was confirmed to all five D. Africanus populations. Expand
Nematodes of Quarantine Importance
Phytonematodes have ever been an unseen and often underestimated menace in horticultural crops across the globe and could be much greater if species currently causing localized damage became more widespread. Expand
Exploring the Host Parasitism of the Migratory Plant-Parasitic Nematode Ditylenchus destuctor by Expressed Sequence Tags Analysis
Most of the effectors involved in nematode parasitism of plant for several sedentary endo-parasitic nematodes such as Heterodera glycines, Globodera rostochiensis and Meloidogyne incognita have been identified and extensively studied over the past two decades. Expand
Reactions of some Confectionery Groundnut Accessions to Plant Parasitic Nematodes Infection
Investigations were conducted at four locations in Ghana during 2011 growing season to evaluate some confectionery groundnut accessions reactions to plant parasitic nematodes infection, and ICGV97051 was identified as the most promising accession on account of high yielding and nematode suppression potential. Expand
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. Expand
Using marigold (Tagetes spp.) as a cover crop to protect crops from plant-parasitic nematodes
Variable findings from marigold use are revealed, and future research should focus on determining the exact causes of this variability and on developing field IPM programs that take advantage of the nematode-suppressive potential of marigolds. Expand
Challenges in tropical plant nematology.
The study of interactions between nematodes and other pathogens in disease complexes provide opportunities for multidisciplinary research with scientists from other disciplines but remain underexploited. Expand
