Abstract The white grubs Rhizotrogus obesus Lucas and Geotrogus olcesii Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) are two of the most problematic soil-dwelling pests of some annual crops in Morocco, where they may become a target for entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN). In this study, fourteen EPN strains reported from different fields in Morocco were investigated for their efficacy against

Abstract: Mediterranean cereal cyst nematode (CCN) Heterodera latipons is considered as one of the main CCN that causes significant economic losses in the production of intolerant cereal crops in Turkey. Accordingly, this study aimed at evaluating the effect of different storing temperatures and durations on the emergence of second-stage juveniles (J2s) of the nematode populations

Root-knot nematodes extracted from eggplant (Solanum melongena cv. Black beauty) root samples collected from plantations in the Souss region of Morocco, was identified as Meloidogyne arenaria based on female perineal pattern and sequence-characterized amplified region polymerase chain reaction (SCAR-PCR) technique. Meloidogyne spp. are the most damaging plant-parasitic nematodes in vegetable production (Jones et al. 2013). In Morocco, nematode species of

The cereal cyst nematode, Heterodera latipons, is an important plant parasite causing substantial yield losses in wheat throughout the world. This study aimed to determine genetic and pathogenic variation in H. latipons populations obtained from the southern part of Turkey. The populations were identified as H. latipons by sequencing the ITS-rDNA region and further sequence analysis showed an intraspecific genetic

Plant-parasitic nematodes (PPNs) are considered serious damaging on the global cereals production systems. The current study was conducted to evaluate the incidence of PPNs in the main cereal-growing areas in northern Kazakhstan. PPNs were detected in about 90% of 78 soil samples and thirteen genera were identified, including Pratylenchus, Heterodera, Geocenamus, Ditylenchus, Helicotylenchus, Rotylenchus, Pratylenchoides, and Tylenchorhynchus. Out of the 78 samples, 32

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

A survey of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) was conducted in Morocco during 2015 and 2016 in three regions with varying topography, climate and vegetation (Meknès-El Hajeb, Ifrane and Tafilalet). EPN were isolated from 14 of 169 soil samples (8%). Molecular and morphological techniques were used for species determination. Nine samples contained heterorhabditids and five samples contained

In 2018, during a survey in Souss region of Morocco, the dagger nematode Xiphinema pachtaicum was found parasitizing onion, (Allium cepa L.). The populations of dagger nematode were identified on the basis of their morphological and morphometric characters and by sequencing and analysing the D2D2 region of 28S rRNA. Microscopic observation of females demonstrated the occurrence of Xiphinema pachtaicum on

Raspberry (Rubus idaeus) polytunnels in Morocco’s Souss-Massa region were surveyed between February and April 2018. The study was aimed to investigate the diversity and incidence of plant-parasitic nematodes affecting raspberry crop and to assess the effects of soil physico-chemical properties on the nematodes. Twelve nematode genera were identified form the soil and root samples collected

Cereal cyst nematodes (Heterodera spp.) are distributed globally and cause severe production losses of small grain cereals. To investigate the occurrence of cereal cyst nematodes in wheat-growing areas of Algeria, a survey was conducted and 27 cereal cyst nematode populations were collected. The populations were initially identified based on their morphological and morphometric characters, followed
