Root-lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus) have a broad host range, and cause up to 60% yield loss in wheat and 20% yield loss in chickpea. Summer crops have an important role in management of root-lesion nematodes because some crops are susceptible and others are resistant. However, from our results, summer crops appear to be tolerant to root-lesion nematodes and there are no reliable symptoms of infection to tell you if the summer crop is resistant or susceptible. P. thornei and P. neglectus can infect different crops so the most important first step is: to get soil tested to know what nematode species are present.
