AbstractThe root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne enterolobii, is a major disease of guava, Psidium guajava, in Brazil and other countries. Biology and Identification . In these areas, young guava trees are exhibiting symptoms of yellowing, shredding of leaves, drying of branches, reduced vigour, less productivity etc. In the female, the stylet knobs are rounded, slightly sloping backwards and divided longitudinally by distinct grooves so that each knob appears as two. The guava root-knot nematode has the distinction of … M. R. Moore * / J. First report of Meloidogyne enterolobii infecting Japanese blue berry tree (Elaeocarpus decipiens) in Florida, USA . ABSTRACT. females were extracted from root of acerola and of wild and introduced guava and their perineal patterns were examined.

The perineal pattern of adult females showed an … The females of M. enterolobii showed characteristic pear-shape and pearly-white colour. These reports have prompted previous alerts from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services and the NC State Vegetable Pathology Lab , as well as research regarding chemical control methods. With a quick Q&A, this article describes this pest and what you need to know about it. Significant interactions were found between AMF and M. enterolobii in number of leaves, dry biomass of aerial plantlet parts. Research on guava wilt carried out under network projects at ICAR-CISH revealed the cultural, morphological, molecular and pathogenic variability of Fusarium spp. Guava root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) is an invasive pest that has received increased attention and concern in recent years. Meloidogyne enterolobii Yang and Eisenback, 1983, known colloquially as the guava root-knot nematode or the pacara earpod tree root-knot nematode (Yang and Eisenback, 1983), is an emerging threat due to its global distribution, wide host range, and the ability to reproduce on tomato genotypes carrying Mi resistance genes (Moens et al., 2009; Castagnone-Sereno, 2012). First Report of Root-Knot Nematode Meloidogyne enterolobii on Guava in Vietnam Plant Dis. The nematode species was later described from other regions in China and mainly on guava, Psidium guajava. Taxonomically, M. enterolobii is a senior synonym of M. mayaguensis that was originally described from Puerto Rico … has a well-documented ability to overcome many crop resistance genes that are effective against the more cosmopolitan . selected from the Psidium Germplasm Collection (Embrapa) to look for resistance against M. enterolobii. The presence of Meloidogyne enterolobii on two hosts and in several locations in Costa Rica is reported.Meloidogyne spp. The species was identified using morphometry and with the help of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) common 18S primer as Meloidogyne enterolobii further confirmed by sequencing the 18s rRNA gene. Psidium guajava (guava) is an important crop and economic resource in many tropical countries and Brazil stands out as one of its major commercial producers. is considered by most as the most damaging nematode in the world. Nicotiana tabacum (NIOTA) Major host * Yang B, Eisenback JD (1983) Meloidogyne enterolobii n.sp. Plant Disease 103(4), 775. It has a wide host range that includes the following Louisiana crops: cotton, soybeans, sugarcane, and sweet potatoes. Accurately identifying M.e. Meloidogyne enterolobii was recently found in guava plants there (Chinnasrietal.,2012). The guava root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) was recently introduced into Louisiana by accident on sweet potato seed roots shipped from North Carolina. infect a large number of crops including guava. Meloidogyne enterolobii, or Guava Root Knot Nematode (GRKN) is a highly virulent root-knot nematode (RKN) species that is potentially devastating to specialty crop production in the southeastern United States. Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) Discussion. Meloidogyne enterolobii is an emerging species of root-knot nematode, is currently considered to be one of the most damaging root-knot nematode species in many countries. Guava root-knot nematode is very similar to our common root-knot nematode in the type of damage it causes and its host range and morphology. Root knot in sweetpotato is caused by nematodes of the genus Meloidogyne including but not limited to Meloidogyne incognita (southern root knot nematode), Meloidogyne enterolobii (guava root knot nematode, synonym Meloidogyne mayaguensis), Meloidogyne javanica (javanese root knot nematode), Meloidogyne hapla (northern root knot nematode), and Meloidogyne arenaria (peanut root knot nematode).

Egg-pathogenic fungi are considered potential biological control agents of root-knot nematodes and are associated with suppression of Meloidogyne spp. Guava root-knot nematode (GRKN) is a tropical/subtropical species of root-knot nematode. The use of resistant varieties is the most effective way to manage nematode parasit- ism. Meloidogyne enterolobii is a nematode that continues to severely damage all the guava production chain in the São Francisco river Valley, infesting an area of about 5000 ha.
