Citrus root-knot nematode

Meloidogyne jianyangensis

Citrus root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne jianyangensis) is a nematode pest.

This nematode infects and reproduces on citrus. Because they are generally considered among the most economically damaging nematodes they may have the potential to severely affect citrus production if they arrive and establish in the United States.

For more information about this plant pest, see the CABI data sheet.
