Host Suitability and Parasitism of Selected Strawberry Cultivars by Meloidogyne hapla and M. incognita. W. H. Edwards, Graduate Student, Department of Plant Pathology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh 27695. R. K. Jones, Professor, and D. P. Schmitt, Associate Professor, Department of Plant Pathology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh 27695. Plant Dis. 69:40-42. Accepted for publication 14 June 1984. Copyright 1985 The American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-69-40.

The relative susceptibility of 12 strawberry cultivars to Meloidogyne hapla and M. incognita was evaluated in the greenhouse. M. hapla parasitized and reproduced on all cultivars. Sumner, Albritton, Earlibelle, and Tennessee Beauty suffered biomass reduction in association with egg production. Earliglow may have some tolerance to M. hapla. None of the cultivars tested were parasitized by M. incognita. An undescribed Meloidogyne sp. was found on Sunrise planting stock. Sunrise roots parasitized with the unknown Meloidogyne sp. were parasitized by M. incognita after inoculation.
