Volatile compounds as potential bio-fumigants against plant-parasitic nematodes – a mini review

Plant-parasitic nematodes (PPNs) are one of the major constraints to crop production, and especially in high-value vegetable and fruit crops, they can cause significant economic yield loss, estimated to be more than US$100 billion annually (Bernard et al., 2017). Chemical soil fumigants have been in use for more than a century now, and remain the standard practice in many crops, especially fruits and vegetables. Although many of the early fumigants have been banned, the ones that have managed

Nematicide influence on cotton yield and plant-parasitic nematodes in conventional and sod-based crop rotation

, stunting, and chlorosis (Lawrence and McLean, 2001; Blasingame et al., 2002; Robinson, 2007). Rotating to a non-host crop may provide short-term suppression of plant-parasitic nematodes in cotton production (Starr et al., 2002). For instance, crop rotation to a non-host like peanut (Arachis hypogaea) or corn (Zea mays) is an effective means to manage RN (Moore and Lawrence, 2012). Rotation to a non-host for one or more years can reduce RN populations below economic thresholds into the subsequent cotton

Nematicidal Effects of 5-Aminolevulinic Acid on Plant-Parasitic Nematodes

Plant-parasitic nematodes are important agricultural pests and often cause serious crop losses. Novel, environmental friendly nematicides are urgently needed because of the harmful effects of some existing nematicides on human health. 5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) was reported as a potential biodegradable herbicide, insecticide, or plant-growth promoting agent. Lack of information on ALA against plant-parasitic nematodes prompted this investigation to determine the effects of ALA on Meloidogyne

Diversity and seasonal fluctuation of tylenchid plant-parasitic nematodes in association with alfalfa in the Kerman Province (Iran)

Worldwide, alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.), a flowering plant belonging to the family Fabaceae, is cultivated as a forage crop (Tucak et al., 2008). It is the most important forage crop in Iran due to its superior feeding value for cattle, which is the main meat/protein food source (Tucak et al., 2008). The genus Medicago comprises many species, with up to 23 being cultivated in Iran (Ghanavati et al., 2007). A wide range of plant-parasitic nematodes have been associated with alfalfa crops in

The impact of chemical nematicides on entomopathogenic nematode survival and infectivity

Plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs) are problematic soil dwelling pests. They attack and cause severe mechanical and physiological damage to plant roots as ecto- and endo-parasites as they feed on the sap and tissues with their stylet mouthparts. Subsequent effects include negative impact on plant growth and yield and may lead to plant death due to the PPNs (Atkinson et al., 2012; Forghani and Hajihassani, 2020; McCarter, 2009). PPNs feeding activity may also lead to secondary infections by other

Evaluation of a new chemical nematicide, fluazaindolizine (ReklemelTM active), for plant-parasitic nematode management in bermudagrass

turfgrass (Taliaferro, 1995). The warm and humid weather of the region makes this the ideal geography for bermudagrass growth and production. One of the major pest issues for bermudagrass management in the southeast is plant-parasitic nematodes. A 2005 survey of golf courses in Florida found that over 80% of courses sampled were infested with plant-parasitic nematodes at potentially damaging levels (Crow, 2005). In Alabama, at least 10 genera of plant-parasitic nematodes have been recovered in routine

Over time, this reduces the amount of fumigant used. In addition to fumigation, a variety of approaches have been researched for management of plant-parasitic nematodes including development of pre-plant hot water treatments of rootstocks, evaluation of rootstock susceptibility, and evaluation of biological products (Buzo et

First Report of the Spiral Nematode Helicotylenchus microlobus Infecting Soybean in North Dakota

Spiral nematodes (Helicotylenchus spp.) are common plant-parasitic nematodes in fields of many crops. In June 2015, two soil samples were collected from a soybean field in Richland County, ND. Nematodes were extracted from soil using the sugar centrifugal flotation method ( Jenkins, 1964). Plant-parasitic nematodes were identified to genus based on morphological features and counted. Both samples contained spiral nematodes from 1,500 to 3,300 per kilogram of soil. In June and August

The NAL is using this as their standard method to extract Anguina pacificae, a species that does not occur on turf in Florida, from California golf course samples. Mist extraction from turf plugs is currently being evaluated for diagnosis of Hoplolaimus spp. from golf course bermudagrass in Florida (Crow, 2020). While

Effect of an Alltech soil health product on entomopathogenic nematodes, root-knot nematodes and on the growth of tomato plants in the greenhouse

In the context of food security for an ever increasing global population, nematodes pose serious threat to agricultural crops worldwide (Miamoto et al., 2017). There are nearly 4,100 species of plant parasitic nematodes (PPN) reported to date that are currently a serious constraint for global food security (Jaouannet et al., 2013) causing yield loss of about 30% in susceptible crop varieties annually (tomatoes, eggplant, and melons) (Padgham et al., 2004; Collange et al., 2011).

Differences in parasitism of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) on oilseed radish and oat

Management of plant-parasitic nematodes in vegetable plasticulture or bare-ground systems in the southern US relies heavily on pre-plant fumigation of soil with 1,3-dichloropropene (Telone II), Chloropicrin or metam sodium (Vapam), followed by in-season application of non-fumigant nematicides (Hajihassani, Davis, and Timper, 2019). One of the alternative management methods is the use of nematode-suppressive cover/trap crops to reduce nematode populations in soil. However, the majority of oilseed and oat

The Maturity Index is considered a measure of environmental disturbance, and low MI values indicate disturbed and enriched environments while high MI values indicate stable environments (Bongers, 1990). Due to the functionality of plant-parasitic nematodes in the agroecosystem, this group is used to calculate the level of anthropic disturbance using PPI (Bongers, 1990). The equation used to calculate MI, MI 2–5 and PPI is ∑[v(i) × pi], where v(i) corresponds to the c-p value

Effects of Cover Crops on Pratylenchus penetrans and the Nematode Community in Carrot Production

Cover cropping is a common practice in U.S. Midwest carrot production for soil conservation, and may affect soil ecology and plant-parasitic nematodes—to which carrots are very susceptible. This study assessed the impact of cover crops—oats (Avena sativa), radish (Raphanus sativus) cv. Defender, rape (Brassica napus) cv. Dwarf Essex, and a mixture of oats and radish—on plantparasitic nematodes and soil ecology based on the nematode community in Michigan carrot

However, under conditions such as heat stress, viral infection, and cancer development, the expression of HK genes of animals can vary (Sahu et al., 2018). The utilization of invalidated reference genes results in unreliable and misleading conclusions.

Short-term Impacts of Tillage and Fertilizer Treatments on Soil and Root Borne Nematodes and Maize Yield in a Fine Textured Cambisol

Conservation agriculture (CA) based on the principles of minimum soil disturbance, crop residue retention, and crop rotation has been the focus of intensive research in recent years. A study was carried out to determine the effects of tillage and fertilizer on the population densities of plant-parasitic nematodes in maize. Three tillage regimes, (i) basin planting, (ii) rip line seeding, and (iii) conventional tillage, were combined with four fertilizer regimes: (i) no-fertilizer, (ii) low

Among these, the Meloidogyne spp. genus representes the group of greater importance (Silva et al., 2014). The species of this genus can cause 100% losses in the production and therefore are considered one of the most harmful in the olericulture cultivation (Kurozawa and Pavan, 2005; Perry and Moens, 2006
