Research

Reniform nematodes have been associated with yield losses in sweet potato and with cracking leading to lower storage root quality. For this study, the first objective was to measure the impact that high populations of reniform nematodes have on sweet potato yield and quality in the Mississippi Delta. The second objective was to compare reniform nematode control in soil treated with two different nematicides.
