  author={Larry W. Duncan and David T. Kaplan and Joseph W. Noling},
Studies were conducted to determine methods to restrict inter-orchard spread of Radopholus citrophilus. Experiments focused on the ability of a nematode to migrate in root-free soil and on methods to restrict the growth of citrus roots across root-free buffer zones. In migration trials, the nematode moved 1.4 m in 1 year from infected to noninfected seedlings when host roots were permitted to grow toward one another. However, when citrus root growth was restricted by pruning, the nematode did… 
When and how to fallow: first steps towards banana crop yield improvement through optimal and sustainable control of a soilborne pest
A trade-off should be found between fallow deployment to reduce pest infestation and economic returns, and when to leave room for the natural reproduction of the banana plant, on the basis of mathematical models.
Effects of Container Bases on the Spread of Meloidogyne incognita in a Hawaiian Ornamental Nursery.
Placement of containers on a raised bench was more effective than on any of the unraised container bases in preventing the ground to pot spread, suggesting that weeds were important reservoirs of nematode inoculum for rain-splash dispersal.
Managing Nematodes In Citrus Orchards
The nematode is noteworthy for its intimate association with citrus and the ability of trees to support very large populations before damage becomes evident.
Management of Plant Parasitic Nematode Pests in Florida
Although Florida has been accurately described as a nematologist’s paradise, here the authors focus on five genera that are of primary agricultural importance, while noting additional economically important species that occur in the state.

Survie et dissémination du nématode Radopholus similis (Cobb) Thorne dans les sols bruns-rouilles à halloysites (nitisols) : effets de l'état hydrique et des flux hydriques
Le nematode phytoparasite Radopholus similis est un ravageur majeur des bananiers et plantains dans le monde. Introduit a partir du XVIe siecle en Afrique et Amerique, ce nematode occasionne des
