Nematode Diagnostic Lab
Nematology is the scientific discipline concerned with the study of nematodes, or roundworms. Nematodes are found in almost every kind of environment but, although often capable of withstanding drought for long periods, they cannot be active unless there is sufficient free water in their immediate surroundings.Plant-parasitic nematodes, often referred to as ′hidden enemies′, are among the most widespread and important pathogens causing crop loss. They are major pathogens in their own right and through their interaction with other disease-causing agentsEffective control of nematodes is essential for crop protection and requires an understanding of nematode biology, taxonomy, population dynamics and sampling methods.
■Identification of plant disease problems on samples
■ Soil or plant tissue analysis
■ Morphological identification of nematodes
■ Nematode identification and quantification
Nematology lab is able to test a host range of crops like Greenhouses,Fruit trees,vegetables,wheat, etc.
