Title: Genetic variation for tolerance and resistance to Pratylenchus neglectus / by Mohammed Farsi.
Author: Farsi, Mohammad
Issue Date: 1995
School/Discipline: Dept. of Plant Science
Abstract: A major problem in the production of agricultural crops including wheat, is the damage caused by destructive plant parasitic nematodes, among these the root lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp.) The association of P. neglectus with fungi in ceraeal root disease has been reported. Infection is associated with leaf yellowing, which reduces plant photosynthesis and grain yield. In nematode infested soil, well fertilized crops are usually less affected.
