Summary of the Express Pest Risk Analysis for Meloidogyne ethiopica Whitehead, 1968

Description

M. ethiopica can be introduced in PRA area with plant tissues, growing medium, vegetable waste or for research purposes. Root-knot nematode might colonise the entire PRA area. It is difficult to estimate the pest impact on field crops, but we can observe losses in greenhouses (with natural growing medium). There is no information about resistance of using plant varietes.

Probability of introduction and spread can be reduced by:

·  consignments control- a systematic examination in order to detect the presence of pest

·  using only nematoda-free propagation material,

·  in case of pest occurence in field crops- pest removal from the machines, agricultural tools, infected plants

·  using chemical pesticides
