Exotic Pest Reporting
Gerald Holmes, California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo, Bugwood.org
Root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne mayaguensis) is a nematode pest. It was first detected in Florida in 2002.
Root knot nematodes are widely distributed, have a broad-host range, and cause substantial reduction of crop yield and quality. M. mayaguensis is now considered as one of the most important because of its ability of overcome the resistance of important crop plants.
