M. incognita. Meloidogyne enterolobii is an emerging species of root-knot nematode, is currently considered to be one of the most damaging root-knot nematode species in many countries. Guava orchards of district Ratlam were facing symptoms of sudden decline and loss in productivity due to heavy infestation of highly pathogenic species of root knot nematode, Meloidogyne enterolobii, not only by itself but also causing havoc through predisposing the host for secondary attack by wilt fungus Fusarium oxysporun f.sp. LDAF ACTIVITY: A quarantine has been implemented by LDAF that includes the states of Florida, North Carolina, and … This study screened 51 accessions of Psidium spp. With a quick Q&A, this article describes this pest and what you need to know about it. J Dev Sustainable Agric 8:110–118. Meloidogyne enterolobii Yang and Eisenback, 1983, known colloquially as the guava root-knot nematode or the pacara earpod tree root-knot nematode (Yang and Eisenback, 1983), is an emerging threat due to its global distribution, wide host range, and the ability to reproduce on tomato genotypes carrying Mi resistance genes (Moens et al., 2009; Castagnone-Sereno, 2012). New resources and information are urgently needed to help farmers manage this aggressive pest. Discussion. Accurately identifying M.e. In the female, the stylet knobs are rounded, slightly sloping backwards and divided longitudinally by distinct grooves so that each knob appears as two. ----- confirmed host.

First Report of Root-Knot Nematode Meloidogyne enterolobii on Guava in Vietnam. The species was identified using morphometry and with the help of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) common 18S primer as Meloidogyne enterolobii further confirmed by sequencing the 18s rRNA gene. First report of Meloidogyne enterolobii infecting Japanese blue berry tree (Elaeocarpus decipiens) in Florida, USA . #1. Castagnone( -Sereno 2012). It is also known as poor man’s apple because of of folic acid). First Report of Root-Knot Nematode Meloidogyne enterolobii on Guava in Vietnam Plant Dis. The presence of the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne enterolobii, in guava commercial orchards in many Brazilian states has caused severe loss to growers. Meloidogyne enterolobii has been reported in some states of Brazil and other countries causing severe damage on com-mercial guava (Psidium guajava). Meloidogyne enterolobii found infecting root-knot nematode resistant sweetpotato in South Carolina, United States. The use of resistant varieties is the most effective way to manage nematode parasit- ism. A. Brito / S. Qiu / C. G. Roberts / L. A. Combee Keywords : Elaeocarpaceae, Elaeocarpus decipiens , Guava root-knot nematode, Japanese blueberry tree, Meloidogyne enterolobii , Pacara earpod tree root-knot nematode, Regulatory AbstractThe root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne enterolobii, is a major disease of guava, Psidium guajava, in Brazil and other countries. is considered by most as the most damaging nematode in the world. Variables related to the nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) in roots of guava plants, with or without AMF, 98 days after inoculation with the fungi, and maintained in a greenhouse. The females of M. enterolobii showed characteristic pear-shape and pearly-white colour. Root knot in sweetpotato is caused by nematodes of the genus Meloidogyne including but not limited to Meloidogyne incognita (southern root knot nematode), Meloidogyne enterolobii (guava root knot nematode, synonym Meloidogyne mayaguensis), Meloidogyne javanica (javanese root knot nematode), Meloidogyne hapla (northern root knot nematode), and Meloidogyne arenaria (peanut root knot nematode). Keywords: Meloidogyne enterolobii, guava molecular characterization, perineal pattern Introduction Guava, Psidium guajava is a tropical fruit, belongs to Myrtaceae family cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world. The guava root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) was recently introduced into Louisiana by accident on sweet potato seed roots shipped from North Carolina.
