PRESENCE OF THE YAM NEMATODE Scutellonema bradys IN GUADELOUPE AND MARTINIQUE

The "root-lesion nematode" (Pratylenchus coffeae) has been, until 1985, the major soil-borne pest of yam crops in the French West Indies. Since early this year, the actual "yam-nematode" has been found regularly in tubers sampled in Guadeloupe and Martinique. Research strategies for an integrated control of nematode pests of yams are presented. ----- Le nematode des lesions racinaires (Pratylenchus coffeae) etait,jusqu'a cette annee, Ie principal parasite racinaire des ignames aux Antilles Francaises.
