Virus-vector nematodes from soil: Stubby-Root nematodes
  • Parameters tested
    Nematodes
  • Accreditation
    None
  • Standard Turnaround Time
    15 working days

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

The above ground appearances of affected plants often exhibit retarded growth, wilted foliage, chlorosis 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, including TRV (spraing in potatoes).

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