Globodera pallida

  • PCN (Potato Cyst Nematode)

    Photography: HAU Potato cyst nematode is the most important potato pest in the UK and has the potential to cause substantial yield losses.  There are two species of PCN, Globodera rostochiensis and...

  • 11120021 Pyramiding resistances to PCN

    Resistance to cyst nematodes in potatoes is based on complex interactions between molecules produced by the pest and the plant’s immune system. The outcome is dependent on the species and...

  • 11120019 Durability of PCN resistance

    Background Plants have a multi-layered immune system to protect themselves from attack by pathogens and pests such as PCN. In turn, the pathogens and pests may be able to circumvent a plant’s first...

  • R433 PhD Studentship: Population dynamics of potato cyst nematodes

    Aims of the project determine how mixtures of the two species of PCN compete on different genotypes of potato in which resistance or susceptibility to one or other species are combined investigate...

  • R432 PCN Calculator: Generation of new variety tolerance information

    Aim: To provide information on the tolerance of potato varieties to Globodera pallida under field conditions. Industry Challenge The damage caused by potato cyst nematodes (PCN) Globodera...

  • R287 PCN - DNA-based Detection Systems

    Aim: To develop rapid, DNA-based diagnostics to quantify the amount of Globodera pallida and/or G. rostochiensis in a soil sample. Current methods to detect and identify the potato cyst nematodes,...

  • R264 Tolerance to PCN damage

    Aim: To further develop a computer based model for the integrated control of the white potato cyst nematode (Globodera pallida) by providing extensive variety tolerance data. A former AHDB Potatoes-...
