Species Pratylenchus penetrans
Common Name: lesion nematode; meadow nematode
Clade: Clade IVb
Disease: The lesion nematode is the third most important agriculturally damaging nematode, and it occurs in most locations of the U. S. New methodology for nematode control is needed because previously effective nematicides have been taken off the market due to their persistence and potential for ground-water contamination.
