Abstract

Soil samples for a nematode assay were taken in 1983 within the root zone of highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) plants in mature experimental and commercial plantings. Xiphinema americanum Cobb and Paratrichodorus christiei Allen were the predominant nematode species found. Nematode populations were not affected by cultivar. Mulched plots had significantly fewer P. christiei while X. americanum populations were similar in mulched and nonmulched plots.
