Abstract

A PCR-based technique was used to determine the species of potato cyst nematode (PCN) in fields used for the production of ware potatoes in Scotland. Of the samples testing positive for the presence of viable PCN cysts, nearly 50% were Globodera pallida, either in mixed populations with G. rostochiensis, or G. pallida alone. The consequences for the widespread prevalence of G. pallida for ware potato production in Scotland and its management is discussed.
