New: Evaluation of resistance of crucifers and service plants to Meloidogyne chitwoodi and M. fallax

Writtern by contributeur

The pathology laboratory of GEVES has developed the test for the evaluation of resistance of crucifers and service plants to Meloidogyne chitwoodi and M. fallax. After obtaining quarantine agreement for the handling of these quarantine organisms, our pathologists developed a methodology to define a test protocol, reference material (controls and nematode populations) and the different levels of resistance (susceptible and resistant) for both 2 Meloidogyne species.  

The resistance tests for M. chitwoodi and M. fallax are now offered by GEVES as a service. The protocol for evaluating the resistance of crucifers and service plants to Meloidogyne chitwoodi has been validated by the Transversal Commission on Service Plants and is now available at the CTPS for the registration of varieties in the National Catalogue. The protocol for Meloidogyne fallax should be equally successful in the coming months.
