  • 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...

  • 11140020 Development of a PCN Population Advisory Tool

    Collaboration Harper Adams University and Barworth Agriculture Background Due to the lack of up-to-date cultivar information, poor yield predictions, flawed decline rate calculations and single...

  • 114R476 Biofumigant Crops for Management of PCN

    Background Biofumigation is a strategy which exploits plants, mainly belonging to the Brassica family, that produce compounds called glucosinolates. When the tissues of the plants are damaged...

  • 11120026 Method to Assess Varietal Tolerance to PCN

    Background The project is evaluating the use of pallet boxes (120 cm x 100 cm, internal depth 72 cm lined with Mypex) to assess varietal tolerance to Globodera pallida.  The box system provides an...

  • 11120021 Pyramiding resistances to PCN

    Background   Aims and Approach Aim: To introgress H2 resistance from the resistant clone P55/7 into cultivars with high levels of partial resistance to G. pallida from S. tuberosum spp. andigena and...

  • 11120019 Durability of PCN resistance

    Background This project aims to develop tools that will allow improved resistance screening and prediction of durability of resistance. The student will analyse the diversity in effector sequences...

  • 11120017 Nematology Fellowship

    Background Potato cyst nematodes (PCN) are recognised as the pest of greatest concern to GB potato growers and free-living nematodes (FLN) are becoming an increasing problem in commercial potato...

  • Potato Cyst Nematode Training Videos and Tests

    Welcome to the PCN Training Tool. Here you will find a number of modules with videos and tests designed to advise on PCN population dynamics, PCN life cycles and using the PCN management tool. We...

  • 114R478 Biofumigation for Pest Control

    Background Soil-borne pests and pathogens, including many nematode and fungal species, are major constraints to profitable crop production in the UK.  New approaches are required that have broad...

  • 115R471 PhD Characterising PCN Populations

    Background The potato cyst nematodes (PCN) (Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida) are destructive pests of potato crops in the UK. The AHDB Potatoes have recently estimated that PCN cause annual...
