Abstract

Plant-parasitic nematodes can cause serious damage to corn. There are numerous species that occur in Iowa, including those with common names like the dagger, lance, lesion, needle, spiral, stubby-root, and stunt nematodes. Symptoms of nematode damage on corn include stunting and/or yellowing of foliage, uneven tasseling, and stunting, swelling, and/or browning of roots.
