Jindapunnapat K, Chinnasri B, Kwankuae S (2013) Biological control of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne enterolobii) in guava by the fungus Trichoderma harzianum. Meloidogyne enterolobii was first discovered parasitizing roots of pacara earpod tree, Enterolobium contortisiliquum in China in 1983 (Yang & Eisenback, 1983). Steps have been taken to eradicate this nematode in the one field where it was detected, and it is not clear at this time if this nematode is actually established in our state. is considered by most as the most damaging nematode in the world. The presence of Meloidogyne enterolobii on two hosts and in several locations in Costa Rica is reported.Meloidogyne spp. Meloidogyne enterolobii differs from M. incognita by the following morphological characteristics. 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. M. enterolobii. Research on guava wilt carried out under network projects at ICAR-CISH revealed the cultural, morphological, molecular and pathogenic variability of Fusarium spp. It has caused direct losses of 108,289,900.00 reais (Brazilian currency) to the guava producers and the loss of 3,650 direct jobs in the region until 2008. Commercial guava orchards have been destroyed in the São Francisco river Valley, northeastern Brazil, by the Meloidogyne enterolobii nematode but to date no effective control has been identified. Accurately identifying M.e. Taxonomically, M. enterolobii is a senior synonym of M. mayaguensis that was originally described from Puerto Rico … Google Scholar Genetic diversity of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne enterolobii and development of a SCAR marker for this guava-damaging species M.

What is the guava root-knot nematode? 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). 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. First report of Meloidogyne enterolobii infecting Japanese blue berry tree (Elaeocarpus decipiens) in Florida, USA . The present investigations were carried out to study bio-intensive management of Meloidogyne enterolobii causing root-knot in tomato and guava. selected from the Psidium Germplasm Collection (Embrapa) to look for resistance against M. enterolobii. Meloidogyne enterolobii was recently found in guava plants there (Chinnasrietal.,2012). PEST: Guava Root-Knot Nematode, (Meloidogyne enterolobii) BASIC PROFILE: M. enterolobii . 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.
