Abstract

Control of root-knot nematodes in peach orchards on Lovell rootstock is one of the first examples of biological control of a plant-parasitic nematode in the field by a naturally occurring antagonist.A naturally occurring, new fungus, Dactylella OviparaStica, has been found parasitizing root-knot nematode eggs in San Joaquin Valley peach orchards grown on Love11 peach rootstock where the nematode pest has been suppressed.
