A real-time quantitative PCR assay was developed for the accurate detection and quantification of the root-lesion nematode, Pratylenchus thornei. A qPCR primer set, including two primers and a probe, was designed based on the sequence of the β-1,4-endoglucanase gene. The assay was optimised by using the primers with SYBR green I dye and setting the qPCR program to

Xiphinema species are migratory ectoparasitic nematodes that feed on an extensive range of hosts, and several species are vectors of nepoviruses. In May 2012, during a survey of the citrus-growing areas in the Gharb region of Morocco, several Xiphinema nematodes were detected in three locations: Kénitra (INRA, plot P1), Sidi Kacem, and Sidi Slimane. Samples were taken 30

Mokrini, F. Waeyenberge, L., Viaene, N , Abbad Andaloussi, F and Moens. M (2013).Quantitative detection of the root-lesion nematode Pratylenchus penetrans using real-time PCR

Pratylenchus penetrans is one of the most economically damaging plant-parasitic nematodes and is found on a wide variety of crops. Correct identification and quantification of this nematode are necessary for providing advice to farmers, but are not easily obtained with the traditional way of microscopic observation. We developed a qPCR assay to detect and quantify P. penetrans in

From May to June 2011, during a survey of the wheat-growing areas in Meknes in the Saïs Region of Morocco, several cyst nematode populations were detected. Sampling was performed 1 month before wheat (Triticum durum) harvest, in fields showing patches of stunted plants. Plants were growing poorly, had chlorotic lower leaves, and a reduced

MOKRINI et al. 2020. Potential of Moroccan entomopathogenic nematodes for the control of the Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann (Diptera: Tephritidae). Scientific report 10, Article number: 19204

The Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann, is a deleterious pest worldwide affecting fruit production. The entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) are a potential biocontrol agent that could be effectively used to control this Mediterranean fruit fly. In this study, five EPN strains reported from different fields in Morocco were evaluated for their efficacy against C. capitata. In laboratory assays, Steinernema

Diversity and Management Strategies of Plant Parasitic Nematodes in Moroccan Organic Farming and Their Relationship with Soil Physico-Chemical Properties. Agriculture 10, 447. Article number: 19204

Organic farming has been increasing steadily over the last decade and is expected to grow drastically in the future. Plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs) are known as one of the most important pests attacking various plants in conventional and organic farming systems. A survey was conducted in January 2019 to determine the occurrence and diversity of
