Bibliography of Estimated Crop Losses in the United States Due to Plant-parasitic Nematodes

  • Society of Nematologists Crop Loss Assessment Committee


Recent published estimates of crop losses due to plant-parasitic nematodes are summarized by crop and state. Estimates are systematically reported from major producing states for cotton, peanut, tobacco, and soybean. Only scattered reports were available for nematode losses to other field crops or to vegetables and ornamentals. Among the states, North Carolina and Michigan were most consistent in reporting loss estimates from the widest range of crops. Key words: crop loss assessment, corn, cotton, field crop, ornamental, peanut, soybean, tobacco, vegetables.
