A soil analysis for stubby-root nematodes Trichodorus SPP and Paratrichodorus SPP. Plants affected exhibit short stunted roots and a general overall reduction in root development. These nematodes can also transmit damaging plant viruses.

Plants with damaged by Trichodorus SPP or Paratrichodorus SPP exhibit typical stubby root symptoms due to the feeding damage on the roots, resulting in a 'stubby'-looking root system. The above ground appearances of infected plants often exhibit retarded growth, wilted foliage, and sensitivity to drought due to the root system damage. Stubby-root nematodes are also known to be vectors of a number of plant pathogenic viruses.

Analysis includes extraction, counts and identified to genus/species by our expert nematologists.
