Differential Host Responses to Meloidogyne from Eastern Nigeria. R. O. Ogbuji, Crop Science Department, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Nigeria. Plant Dis. 64:381-382. Copyright 1980 American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-64-381.

Of 10 populations of three species of Meloidogyne (M. arenaria, M. javanica, and M. incognita) from eastern Nigeria, none was pathogenic to differential cultivars of cotton or peanut but all were pathogenic to differential cultivars of tomato and watermelon. Responses were variable on differential cultivars of pepper and tobacco. These results differed somewhat from those obtained in North Carolina: M. incognita attacked cotton and M. arenaria attacked peanut. Results with other differential hosts were similar but not identical to results from Nigeria.
