Olive Nematodes and their control

  • Nicola Sasanelli
Part of the Integrated Management of Plant Pests and Diseases book series (IMPD, volume 4)


Abstract The pathogenicity, geographic distribution and damage of plant parasitic nematodes associated with olive are revised, for main species of the genera Helicotylenchus, Meloidogyne, Pratylenchus, Tylenchulus, Gracilacus, Rotylenchulus, Ogma, Heterodera and Xiphinema. Research data on olive nematodes are discussed, focusing on the effects of parasitism and plant growth, cultivars and rootstocks susceptibility, nematodes interactions with the soil-borne pathogen Verticillium dahliae, replant problems and control strategies.
