PERFORMANCE OF NEMATODE RESISTANT PEACH ROOTSTOCKS AGAINST MELOIDOGYNE JAVANICA IN CYPRUS

J. Philis

Abstract


Field trials revealed that Nemared and Nemaguard peach rootstocks were highly resistant against Meloidogyne javanica. Both rootstocks harboured significantly fewer galls than the susceptible local rootstock while yields of the cultivar Swellen grebel, grafted on these two rootstocks, were increased. Trunk circumference for both nematode-resistant rootstocks was larger than the "Local" rootstock.
