Current Incidence of Plant Parasitic Nematodes in Louisiana

C. Overstreet, E.C. McGawley


A nematode survey was conducted during 1994 and 1995 throughout the cotton producing parishes in Louisiana. Reniform nematode was widespread throughout the state and found in 56% of the 200 samples collected. Root-knot nematode was found in 27% of the samples. The highest incidence for any nematode was with spiral nematode which was present 68% of the time. Acreage estimated to be infested with the reniform nematode is 510,00 acres while root-knot is present in 189,000 acres.
