Nematodes

Root Knot Nematode

Root Knot nematode  (Meloidogyne incognita)  is the most common plant parasitic nematode that growers in the southeastern states deal with.   Growers should test field annually to monitor levels or test problem spots if suspected.

Other Plant Parasitic Nematodes

Although Root Knot nematode is the most common, other species can be problematic as well.  Stubby Root nematode is a familiar foe to corn, Sting nematode on turf grass, Reniform Nematode is predominant in heavy soils of the mid-south and Columbia Lance Nematode in South Carolina and throughout the southern coast region.    So chances are if you are growing crops,  you probably have some nematode influence.
