Cyst nematodes: Number of eggs per gram of soil
  • Minimum Sample
    1000g Soil
  • Minimum no. of samples required

  • Standard Turnaround
    15 working days

Our experienced Fera nematologists can determine the number of cyst nematode eggs per gram of soil within your samples. From this detailed analysis prevention strategies can be introduced to ensure crop yield and quality is protected against these cyst nematodes.

This test can quantify the amount of PCN in soil before planting. The added benefits of soil quality analysis can inform crop rotations & other potential cultivation strategies that can reduce impact of PCN over time.

Fera plant health experts can perform an analysis on all types of cysts including PCN, Globodera rostochiensis and Globodera pallida and Beef cyst nematode (BCN).

Cyst nematodes have the potential to cause substantial yield loss across your crop, in part because of a restricted number of chemical control strategies available.
