March Featured Fact Sheet: Lesion Nematodes
Lesion or root-lesion nematode disease is caused by members of the genus Pratylenchus. The common name of these nematodes is derived from the often-conspicuous necrotic lesions they cause on host roots. In the past, the name meadow nematodes was used occasionally because of their abundance in this habitat from which the first species was described.
