A nematological survey of vineyards in Cyprus

Maria Antoniou


The importance of parasItIC nematodes in grape production has only been appreciated in the last 20 years. Several genera are considered of economic importance and their pathogenicity has been studied extensively (Raski et al., 1973).

The results presented here are from a survey carried out in May 1979.
