Species of potato cyst nematode from the Xilophagou area in Cyprus
AbstractIn Cyprus, the potato cyst nematode was first reported from the Xylophagou area (Panayi, 1974). It was originally thought that only Globodera rostochiensis was present having been introduced into the country during the last two or three decades with seed potatoes from Northern Europe. The objective of this work was to investigate whether both G. rostochiensis (Woll.) Mulvey et Stone and G. pallida (Stone) Mulvey et Stone are present in Cyprus by studying juvenile morphology and reproduction on differential hosts.
