At Certis Biologicals, we make it our top priority to protect our grower's crops. We've seen the harmful effects of nematode damage and that's why we're inviting you to participate in our FREE nematode testing program.
Nematodes can cause long-term damage to yield and profits. While some nematodes can be helpful for plant growth, many nematodes, including the root-knot, burrowing, cyst, root lesion, false root-knot sting nematodes, and others can be detrimental to plant growth.
The symptoms of nematode damage vary depending on crop and location, but some common effects are yellowing of the plant, stunting, early wilting, and reduced yield. Regular testing and prevention methods can mitigate nematode damage before it affects crop yield and profits.
Negative Effects of Nematodes:
Weakens crop ability to cope with other pest like insects and bacterial and fungal damage
Cause yield loss due to root damage, which lowers crop revenue
All crops can be exposed to nematode damage, particularly: potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrot, tomatoes, other F&V, permanent crops during root flush are especially susceptible.
Identify nematode infestation before damage is too severe, allowing for early treatment which can help to:
After submitting the form below, you'll receive an email detailing the next steps in the process. Depending on the state you live in, you'll receive directions from one of two partner laboratories to send your soil sample to. The testing process will take about 2 weeks and your results will be delivered by a Certis Representative. From there, we'll be available to consult on the best course of action for treatment and management.
Collect a soil sample and send it directly to our partner laboratory.
Our partner laboratory will perform an analysis to confirm the presence, type and relative abundance of nematodes.
We'll provide management recommendations & treatment options for implementation
We're offering this program for your benefit and awareness. Your soil and results will not be shared outside of the lab and your Certis Biologicals representative.
