Abstract

Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are the most important nematode pest in grapevines in Australia. Its infection in grapevine roots induces galls that restrict nutrient and water uptake from soil. Infected vines show poor vigour and stunted growth. These vines progressively weaken leading to a shorter effective lifespan and need replanting. Yield loss could be up to 60%. Nemacurr® is the only registered nematicide to control this nematode pest in grapevines in Australia.
