Re-emergence of wheat seed gall
nematode (Anguina tritici) in Punjab, Pakistan.
wheat has been sold to Brazil since 2000, thanks to the presence of a seed gall nematode in the USDA Nematode Collection.
wheat imports in fear of also importing wheat seed gall nematodes.
wheat imports for fear of introducing the seed gall
nematode, Anguina tritici.
The objective of the present study was to determine the latest distribution of wheat seed gall nematode Anguina tritici (Steinbuch) in Sargodha division of the Punjab province of Pakistan.
Seed gall nematode, Incidence, Prevalence, Distribution, Resurgence.
Wheat seed gall nematode, Anguina tritici, is commonly found where the practice of sowing clean seed is not followed.
So it was planned to conduct a comprehensive survey of wheat fields in Sargodha division to record the incidence and prevalence of seed gall nematode.
The prevalence of seed gall nematode in each tehsil and district was determined as described by Fateh et al.
Other times, the ARS researcher may host a team from another country that needs to check out a test or technique, as an ARS zoologist did for a Brazilian team concerned about wheat seed gall
wheat in South America, banned its import in 2000 because of concerns about wheat seed gall nematode, FAS and APHIS turned to David Chitwood, zoologist and research leader with the ARS Nematology Laboratory at BARC.
Nematode Collection, which their lab oversees, and found a sample of a seed gall nematode collected from Brazil in the 1950s, proving that Brazil is already home to at least the same genus of problem nematodes.
