Detection of damaging nematode infestations may allow growers to significantly increase crop productivity and profitability. It is imperative that growers test their soil to determine which nematode species are present in their fields as well as their population densities. The best way to detect and identify nematode problems is through collecting soil and/or plant samples and having those samples analyzed in a reliable nematode diagnostic lab. It is highly recommended that, if you suspect a field has a nematode problem, test the soil and then consult with your local Extension agent or nematologist for advice on how to manage the nematode infection.
