  • Abstract Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz( is attacked by numerous species of plant-parasitic nematodes, among which, Meloidogyne spp. are the most damaging. However, data on the level of damage occurring under field and farm conditions are largely lacking. To examine the impact, upon cassava production, of plant-parasitic nematodes, field experiments were conducted at four sites in East Africa in Uganda (Serere and Sendusu( and Kenya (Mtwapa and Msabaha( during 2002 and 2003. We focused on… CONTINUE READING
