Resistance to plant-parasitic nematodes: History, current use and future potential

J. L. Starr, Roger Cook, J. Bridge

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Host plant resistance is one of the cornerstones upon which integrated pest management is based. Improved pest management is an essential element of sustainable agriculture. Resistance to nematodes is currently under utilized, particularly in developing countries. This practically orientated book describes methods for evaluating the resistance and tolerance of plant cultivars to parasitic nematodes, and provides specific instructions on all phases of resistance screening. With the current emphasis on decreasing the use of chemical nematicides, this book is a timely addition to the subject.
