  author={Mehmet Karakaş},
Pratylenchus penetrans reproduced monoxenically on carrot disc and on Agrobacterium rhizogenes transformed potato root cultures. The life cycle was completed in 40 days at 24 °C. An initial inoculum level of 54 individuals provided three times more nematodes than ten or twenty individuals. In all tests most nematodes were found in the egg stage and only a low proportion of the population reached the adult stages.

In vitro reproduction of Pratylenchus neglectus on carrot discs and investigation of its interaction with Meloidogyne hispanica on potato
The results suggest an additive effect of M. hispanica on P. neglectus reproduction, although future tests are still needed to confirm the possibility of an increase of P. neglectedus population densities for the next crop, when both nematodes are inoculated concomitantly. Expand

Many kinds of nematodes have been reported in and around the roots of various fruit crops, only few are cause serious damage, including the root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne spp.), burrowing nem atode (Radopholus similis) and citrus nematODE (Tylenchulus semipentrans) are the major nematod pests that infect fruit crops.

Monoxenic culture of Pratylenchus zeae on carrot discs
The objective of this study was to assess the efficiency of sterile carrot discs in mass culturing of P. zeae collected from maize roots and revealed higher reproduction rates of P.'sylenchus zeae on carrot discs compared to excised maize roots. Expand

Monoxenic culture of Pratylenchus sudanensis on carrot disks, with evidence of differences in reproductive rates between geographical isolates
Sterile carrot disk and excised maize root methods were assessed for their ability to support mass culture of P. sudanensis and other favourable hosts included sorghum, pigeon pea and lubia bean. Expand
Gnotobiotic Culture of Pratylenchus scribneri on Carrot Discs
Pratylenchus scribneri obtained from a field population was cultured on 'Williams 79' soybean at 32C in a growth chamber and viable axenic nematodes obtained after soaking and migration in streptomycin sulfate and HgCl were injected into fresh car. Expand
