Examination for the presence of plant parasitic nematode infestation in soil and plant samples

Plant parasitic nematodes are major pests for agricultural crops (field crops, cultivation of vegetables in the open air as well as in a protected environment, wine and fruit cultivation). They are typical crop rotation pests and can establish considerably damaging nematode densities for the subsequent crop through the cultivation of host plants.

The growth of the crops is severely impaired. Irregularly growing plants or nests-like stunted growth in plant constituents points to an infestation with plant-parasitic nematodes. This may result in significant quality and yield losses for the affected culture.

A soil analysis indicates nematode distribution at the time of sampling. Sampling in the field may be carried out as of March. For planning cultivation of the subsequent year, sampling should take place in autumn, since the number of nematodes is then at its highest. This allows for sufficient time to prepare crop rotation planning as well as the methods of control.
