Maize cyst nematode, Heterodera zeae (Koshy et al .) Disease Cycle. 1 INTEGRA 1. A particular characteristic of yam is that the nematode problem is perpetuated through the use of infected planting material. A small percentage (18.5%) of farmers were familiar with nematodes and the related damage on maize. Pratylenchus zeae occurred at generally higher frequencies than Meloidogyne spp. The Asian corn borer, Ostrinia furnacalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), is one of the most important pests of maize in Asia (Kojima et al., 2010). Root-knot nematode damage results in poor growth, a decline in quality and yield of the crop and reduced resistance to other stresses (e.g. in the susceptible varieties. The occurrence of "toppling disease" in maize in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, caused by Ditylenchus dipsaci is described. Corn nematodes prefer feeding on new succulent cell tissue where cells are dividing, however all root area is susceptible to damage. High Plains Disease Maize Rough Dwarf and Other Fijivirus Diseases Wheat Streak Mosaic Diseases Caused by Nematodes Root Lesion Nematodes Sting Nematodes Needle Nematode Stubby-Root Nematodes Lance Nematodes Root-Knot Nematodes Other Nematodes Awl Nematode Cyst Nematodes Dagger Nematodes Ring Nematodes Spiral Nematodes Stunt Nematodes Disease Caused by a … Plant Pathol 49:383–388 CrossRef Google Scholar. themselves interact with other disease causing agents and adversely affect the quality and quantity of maize production. Bertrand B, Nunez C, Sarah JL (2000) Disease complex in coffee involving Meloidogyne arabicida and Fusarium oxysporum. Shashi Singh; Satish Kumar; Bajaj HK, 1998. We work on mapping, characterizing and cloning disease resistance genes and understanding the links between quantitative resistance, qualititative resistance, the basal defense response and other traits associated with plant defense. Nematol Medit 33:203–207 Google Scholar. Maize in India ranks fifth in total area and third in total production and productivity. A high level of damage can lead to total crop loss. Nematodes cause substantial grain yield loss in susceptible maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars. …an immensely accomplished artist with a huge sound and a way of playing that is lyrical and intense without a hint of preciousness. has been reported to cause significant losses in Rajasthan due to monocropping of maize, favorable soil and environmental conditions and ignorance of management practices. Incidence of maize cyst nematode, Heterodera zeae in Himachal Pradesh. Damage caused is briefly described. The juveniles can infect roots, and the eggs will hatch whenever soil becomes warm regardless of season. Mushroom- nematode problems. Stalk rots are the most serious and widespread group of the diseases in maize. Follow crop rotation with non host or antagonist crops like ground nut, sorghum, maize… An account … More than 2,000 kinds of higher plants are subject to their attack. Nematode problems of protected cultivation. It is a major disease of banana and plantain, black pepper, giant swamp taro (see Fact Sheet no. In cassava, it has been suggested that levels of South Sulawesi is one of the largest maize-producing regions in Indonesia, with an average harvest area of 295,115 ha and a production of 1,528,414 tons have been reported in association with maize root systems(CBS South … Nematode damage can occur throughout the growing season; however, corn is most vulnerable during early-season crop establishment. Plantation, medicinal and aromatic crops- burrowing nematode problem of banana, spices and condiments, root-knot and lesion nematode problems of coffee and tea, red ring disease of coconut. SKU: 9788185211978 Category: Agriculture • Seed treatment Systemic fungicides like carboxin, vitavax and benlate @ 2.0 g/Kg seed and Tilt (propioconazole) 25 EC @ 0.1% are used for seed treatment. These findings justify the need for a programme to raise farmers’ awareness on nematodes, their effects on crops as well as control strategies, and also a breeding programme that incorporates nematode resistance with farmer-preferred characteristics in maize. This study was conducted to estimate general combining ability (GCA), specific combining ability (SCA) and genetic effects associated with nematode resistance in maize. Most nematologists agree that it is important to estimate the population densities of nematodes both in the soil and inside root tissue when conducting a nematode analysis. Less visibly damaged tubers may be sold … In Africa smearing tubers with wood ash or cow dung shows reduced nematode infection in field. The major diseases are: four foliar diseases, two pre‐flowering and three post‐flowering stalk rots, four downy mildews and two sheath diseases. The major diseases are: four foliar diseases, two pre‐flowering and three post‐flowering stalk rots, four downy mildews and two sheath diseases. Both male and female larvae enter a small root of a susceptible plant and begin to feed on the vascular system. New Delhi, India: Cosmo Publications. Examination of roots showed that the severity of disease was related to the level of D. dipsaci infestation. -The Sunday Times- Sharma NK; Damanjeet; Sharma SB, 1984. Of soil samples examined from maize fields in Rajasthan, India, 46% were positive for Heterodera avenae. Comparing different maize supplementation strategies to improve resilience and resistance against gastrointestinal nematode infections in browsing goats. Keywords: Maize plant, nematode, soil-borne pathogen INTRODUCTION Maize is an agricultural commodity that is a top priority for improving food security in Indonesia. 203), ginger (see Fact Sheet no. Lance nematodes feeding on a root. S. S. Vaish. Some virus diseases have been suspected but have not been verified in Nepal (Manandhar, 1983). It is estimated that by the year 2020, demand for maize in developing countries will surpass demand for both wheat and rice. 161), tea, but also important on palms (Arecaceae), maize and sugarcane (Poaceae), cabbages (Brassicaceae), and tomatoes (Solanaceae). The yield from such infested plants is considerably reduced. Many factors can reduce its production, such as pests, diseases, weeds, etc. Besides several nematode species were isolated that are known to be pathogenic in maize (Manandhar, 1997). At the earliest in June, you can observe the classic symptoms of nematode infestation but not all symptoms occur simultaneously. Important maize diseases and their status in different agro-ecological regions are presented in Table 1. Several hundred plant species are hosts of the nematode. Bajaj HK, Kanwar RS (2005) Parasitization of maize by Heterodera avenae and H. filipjevi. II Diseases of Maize ..... 42 III Cyst Nematode of Maize ..... 44 CONTENTS. Nematode-damaged roots do not use water and fertilisers as effectively, leading to additional losses for the grower. Treating tubers with hot water for 40 min at 50-55 C before sowing and after harvest to reduce disease both in field and storage. Yields of grain crops usually vary considerably between years, mainly due to highly variable rainfall. During a study on the presence and location of Meloidogyne incognita race 2 within maize roots, a nematode-trapping fungus, Arthrobotrys dactyloides was observed for the first time on maize in … Sporangia are produced at low temperature (20-22°C), while oospores are formed at high temperature. Disease Resistance Breeding in Wheat - Theory and Practices. Plant disease - Plant disease - Nematode diseases: Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne species) are well known because of the conspicuous “knots,” or gall-like swellings, they induce on roots. Maize (Zea mays L.), as the source of food, forage and processed products for industry, is an important cereal (Chulze, 2010). Among nematodes, maize cyst nematode, Heterodera zeae (Koshy et al., 1970) has been recognized as key nematode pest of maize including especiality maize in India and reported to causes significant yield losses (Singh and Rathore, 2001; Srivastavaand Chawla, 2005). Losses are often heavy, especially in warm regions with long growing seasons. Our research is focused on understanding the basis of quantitative (partial) disease resistance in maize and its close relative sorghum. drought, other diseases). The nematode infestation considerably restricts water and nutrient uptake by the sugarbeet plant. There are about 72 maize diseases reported in Ethiopia caused by fungi, bacteria, nematode and viruses [6.7]. 81%, respectively, and reduced nematode associated root necrosis by up to 46%. Field: Withering of the beet Heavily damaged tubers are obvious, and are not generally used as seed, and usually consumed at home. Nematode population changes under maize, cowpea and fallow: paper presented at the Second Annual Conference of the Nigerian Society for Plant Protection, Abstracts of papers presented at the Second Annual Conference of the Nigerian Society for Plant Protection, Federal Department of Agricultural Research, Moor Plantation, Ibadan, Nigeria, February 14-16, 1972. (1970) [9] from the Chhapli village of Udaipur district of Rajasthan. Maize is the most important cereal crop grown in South Africa, followed by wheat and grain sorghum. Cyst forming nematodes of India. At times, entire fields may be infested and overall health of the plants may appear poor. However, diseases such as turcicum leaf blight (TLB), common leaf rust(CLR), gray leaf spot (GLS) are still important constraints in all maize growing regions in Ethiopia that cover 80-95% of maize leaf diseases. Nematode diseases usually go unnoticed as infected plants are rarely killed. Development of disease- and pest-resistant transgenic crops ... UK, has generated transgenic plantain using maize cystatin that limits the digestion of dietary protein by nematodes, synthetic peptide that disrupts chemoreception, or both of these traits. Of the 61 diseases of maize recorded so far, 15 and one nematode problem, are considered to constitute the major constraints limiting production. To test this hypothesis, soil parameters and nematode population composition were measured. were pest and disease resistance, high grain palatability, long storage duration and large kernels. Maize roots and soil samples were also collected from farmers' fields, and nematode incidence determined. INTRODUCTION Maize (Zea mays L.) occupies an important place in world agriculture. Nematode populations increase as their food source, corn roots, develop. TERRY A. TATTAR, in Diseases of Shade Trees (Revised Edition), 1989. Low levels of infection may not be detected, and can contribute to the disease cycle when tubers are used as seed material. Indian Journal of Nematology, 14:198. Catalase and Glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase isozymes patterns of races of Heterodera cajani … Among nematodes, maize cyst nematode, (H. zeae) is considered to be the most important nematode pest of maize in India [8]. Information on ear, cob and kernel rots, smut and virus diseases is presented. Gárate-Gallardo L(1), Torres-Acosta JF(2), Aguilar-Caballero AJ(2), Sandoval-Castro CA(2), Cámara-Sarmiento R(2), Canul-Ku HL(2). A particular crop may show only patches of damage where the nematode populations are much larger than in the rest of the field. Root knot nematodes may overwinter in the soil as eggs or juveniles. It was first reported by Koshy et al. In the on-farm test, amending soils with cattle manure and M. pruriens significantly (P<0.05) improved maize grain yield by up to 88 and 53%, respectively, and suppressed nematode population build-up by up to 68% and disease severity (root necrosis) by up to 70%. Incidence of other nematodes is given. The 30 F 1 hybrids generated from a 6 × 6 diallel and two local checks were evaluated in 2009 at three sites in Uganda. Nematodes also interact with other disease-causing agents (pathogens and soil insects) and adversely affect the quantity and quality of maize production. Because disease caused by nematodes can't be diagnosed based solely on plant symptoms, it is necessary to collect samples and submit them to a laboratory for nematode analysis. Sharma SB; Swarup G, 1984. The nematode larvae stimulate the roots to form a nutritive tissue (syncytium). ABSTRACT Maize pre-cultivation was hypothesised to alleviate soil deterioration in replanted apple orchard, and this would be expected to be reflected in the nematode community in the soil.
