Nematodes: A Threat to All Growers
Nematodes are a problem for all growers across a variety of crops. According to Ernie Flint, Agronomist at Mississippi State University (MSU) Extension, nematodes may be microscopic in size, but they can do a lot of damage. Flint discusses a variety of nematodes including:
- Reniform nematode
- Southern root knot nematode
- Peanut root knot nematode
- Soybean cyst nematode
Flint also warns that nematodes can be especially troublesome since they can mimic the appearance of other problems such as soil fertility, drought and diseases.
