Plant-parasitic nematodes are typically small (0.2–10 mm long) worm-like animals, able to move between soil particles, between folded leaves of plant buds, in the air spaces of leaves and stems or in plant tissues themselves. Their movement in soil is influenced by the thickness of the water films surrounding soil particles and they are inactive in dry conditions. Agricultural soils usually contain many species of plant-parasitic nematodes, as well as predatory and microphagous types, and the… Expand
Effects of Potato-cyst Nematodes (Globodera pallida) and Soil pH on Root Growth, Nutrient Uptake and Crop Growth of Potato
TLDR
An interaction between nematodes and soil pH is suggested, with nematode damage being higher at pHKCl 6.1 than at pH kCl 4.8, which is higher than that of the control. Expand
New Sources of Resistance to Potato Pathogens in old Varieties of the Canary Islands
TLDR
The results suggest the potential exploitation of the cultivar Venezolana Negra in breeding programmes in order to improve pest and disease resistance of potato. Expand
Agronomic and ecological studies on the potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) in Southwest China : seed and crop management
TLDR
Results suggest that planting dates of the two species can be more closely synchronized in the current intercropping system, to achieve a more efficient use of space and time. Expand
Solanum gourlayi—a Source of Cyst Nematode Resistance in Potato Breeding
TLDR
There is a need for independent evaluation of resistance for both pathotypes of G. pallida (Pa2 and Pa3), and it is concluded that this resistance is specific to each pathotype and may be controlled by different genes. Expand
Evaluation ofSolarium fendleri as a source of resistance toMeloidogyne chitwoodi
TLDR
Two accessions ofSolarium fendleri collected in the United States and Mexico were inoculated with 5,000 eggs of host-races 1 and 2 ofMeloidogyne chitwoodi, Columbia root-knot nematode, revealing that two accessions were non-hosts and no resistance was found to race 2. Expand
Plant Parasitic Nematodes of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania
New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania have diverse geologies and geographies including forests, rivers, mountains, lakes and associated rural, suburban and urban communities. Their plant agricultureExpand
Developing Integrated Pest Management for Potato: Experiences and Lessons from Two Distinct Potato Production Systems of Peru
Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is cultivated in diverse agroecosystems, which may harbor different insect pests; accordingly, potato farmers need to have appropriate site-specific pest controlExpand
Development of resistant and tolerant varieties
Our review of plant breeding for cyst nematode control focuses on three crops where cultivars specifically selected for resistance have been commercially exploited, that is soybeans, cereals andExpand
WildSolanum species as resistance sources against different pathogens of potato
TLDR
It is demonstrated that within the gene pool ofolanum species, still numerous but in part unexploited resistances are available which could be favourably used in potato breeding. Expand
In vitro methods for mutation induction in potato ( Solanum tuberosum L.)
TLDR
Radio-sensitivity analyses showed that lower gamma doses are required when mutation induction is applied in combination with micro-tuberization in potato, and micro-tubers were found to be more resistant for in vitro mutation induction than in vitro cuttings. Expand

Effects of Potato Cyst-Nematodes On Potato Plants
TLDR
Final yields were decreased by nematode-infested plants because infested plants were smaller and because they senesced earlier than plants infested with few nematodes. Expand
Effects of Globodera rostochiensis and fertilisers on the mineral nutrient content and yield of potato plants.
Trials with nematicides at three sites confirmed that potato plants heavily infested with potato cyst-nematode contain a smaller concentration of N, P and K and more Ca in their haulm dry matter thanExpand
Changes in cell structure in roots of resistant potatoes parasitized by potato cyst-nematodes. I. Potatoes with resistance gene H1 derived from Solanum tuberosum ssp. andigena
Abstract Histological changes in roots of potato plants with the gene H 1 , which confers resistance to the potato cyst-nematode Globedera rostochiensis pathotype Ro 1, are described for periods ofExpand
Tolerance of potato to potato cyst nematodes (Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida) in relation to the growth and efficiency of the root system
TLDR
Cultivars tolerant of potato cyst-nematode (PCN) differed from intolerant cultivars in that their root systems tended to grow larger in heavily infested soil than in lightly infested or nematicide-treated soil, so partly compensating for the reduction in the top/root ratio. Expand
Action of Plant-Parasitic Nematodes On Their Hosts
A theory of nematode-plant relations, based on quantitative treatment of plant-parasitic nematodes and host root systems was developed, with emphasis on a separation of parasitic and pathogenicExpand
Effects of infestation with Globodera rostochiensis (Wollenweber) Behrens Rol on the growth of four potato cultivars
TLDR
Measuring leaf water potentials and soil water contents was of little value for estimating tolerance but the least tolerant cultivar, Pentland Dell, showed the largest increase in stomatal resistance in heavily infested plots, with Cara showing the smallest. Expand
The Influence of Root Knot Nematode, Meloidog Yne Javanica, On Photosynthesis and On Nutrient Demand By Roots of Tomato Plants
TLDR
The results do not support the hypothesis that creation of metabolic sinks in the roots, caused by the formation of syncytia and galls, have a major influence on top growth and indicate that inhibition of upward translocation of water and nutrients may be more important. Expand
A Review of the Distribution and Biology of the Potato Cyst-Nematodes Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida
TLDR
Resistant cultivars available at present are effective against only some pathotypes and except where high crop values make use of nematicides economic, it is important to combine extended crop rotation with such cultivars. Expand
Growth substances in roots of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) infected with root‐knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.)
TLDR
Roots of tomato plants with galls caused by larvae of Meloidogyne spp. Expand
The translocation of calcium from oat roots infected by the cereal cyst nematode Heterodera avenae (Woll.)
TLDR
It was concluded that nematode invasion and establishment maintened the apoplastic pathway for calcium in regions of the root where it is normally blocked by the development of the endodermis. Expand
