Distribution and Abundance of Nematodes in Horticultural Production in Paraguay​

An Initiative to Improve Soil Health and Food Production in Paraguay​

To explore the distribution and abundance of plant-para​​sitic nematodes on vegetable farms in Paraguay, Horacio Lopez-Nicora et al. created a national research consortium, generating an interactive map based on the survey results. Additionally, their findings suggest that soil texture is significantly associated with nematode abundance, which can be related to edaphic factors and farming practices such as crop selection. This work provides an important first step toward developing sustainable and economic agricultural systems in Paraguay.
