A test for free-living plant-parasitic nematodes from soil including extraction, counts and identification to genus/species (including root-lesion nematodes) of a plant-parasita (PPN) nematodes found within your sample. We also supply information on the pathogen of any PPN's found virus vectors require specialist extraction methods).

Free living nematodes within soil can significantly reduce your crops ability to uptake nutrients and water resulting in lack of vigour, chlorosis, or reduced growth rates which all significantly affect yield.
