Distribution and Regulation of Meloidogyne nataliei

G. Bird, C. Diamond, F. Warner, J. Davenport

Abstract


Between 1978 and 1990, eight surveys were conducted in southwest Michigan to document the occurrence of Meloidogyne nataliei, the Michigan grape root-knot nematode. The known distribution of M. nataliei is limited to a total of six sections in Antwerp and Porter Townships in Van Buren County, Michigan. In 1984, a M. nataliei regulatory program was initiated by the Michigan Department of Agriculture, U. S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and Michigan State University. The program was designed to reduce risk of damage associated with this nematode. Key words: Concord, distribution, grape, Meloidogyne nataliei, Michigan, Michigan grape root-knot nematode, nematode, regulation, Van Buren County, Vitis labruscana, Vitis spp.
