Mapping Infestations of Potato Cyst Nematodes and the Potential for Spatially Varying Application of Nematicides

Abstract

The most important constraint to potato production in the UK is the damage caused by the potato cyst nematodes (PCN) Globodera pallida and Globodera rostochiensis. These are serious pests, capable of causing substantial yield loss. Modern management systems depend heavily on nematicides which, at c. £360 ha−1 for granular and c. £550 ha−1 for fumigant… (More)
