rln species

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
One or more species of RLN (Root Lesion Nematode, Pratylenchus spp.) occur in at least 60% of WA cropping paddocks... P. thornei occurs rarely; P. neglectus is the most frequent RLN identified in WA, occurring in at least 40% of paddocks; P. teres is found in 10% of paddocks... It is imperative that the species of RLN is correctly identified to enable growers to deploy appropriate crop varieties and species to minimise current and future losses...

Root lesion nematodes (RLN) are proving to be at high levels in Western Australian cropping paddocks this year and growers are encouraged to have samples tested to help them manage the pest in coming seasons... Surveys conducted by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), showed that RLN caused widespread damage in every WA cropping zone last year... "RLN species were found in 90 per cent of 130 paddocks surveyed, and in 48 per cent of paddocks the nematode levels were high enough to cause 15 to 50 per cent yield loss," DAFWA researcher Sarah Collins said...
