The FLN counts reported from individual plots ranged from 1 to 870 trichodorids and 0 to141 Pratylenchus species per 200 g soil. The outcomes of these trials demonstrated that the spatial distribution of FLN can vary significantly across a field, highlighting the importance of ensuring that a representative sample of the entire field is taken when sampling for FLN.
