This project is a literature review by a consortia of nematologists led by Sue Hockland and including Dr Tom Prior of Fera,  Dr Kim Davie and Dr Jon Pickup of SASA, Dr Vivian Blok and Prof John Jones of the James Hutton Institute and Dr Matt Back and Dr Ivan Grove of Harper Adams University.

The aim of the Reference Guide is to put science into practice and provide guidelines for the management of potato cyst nematodes (PCN) and so improve production levels in the UK. Commercial demands may have to be reviewed if the long-term control of PCN and the future of the industry is to be sustained, especially when evidence is accumulating that viable eggs can remain in cysts for 40 years or more.
