Article

Greenhouse studies showed that Pratylenchus brachyurus and Helicotylenchus pseudorobustus singly and in all combinations tested, did not significantly suppress both top growth and root development of sugarcane. Data on mean population increase, showed that P. brachyurus multiplied faster than H. pseudorobustus singly and in all combinations, and had suppressive effect on the reproduction of H. pseudorobustus.
