The study was conducted to investigate the infestation and distribution of plant-parasitic nematodes on Chinese yam (Dioscorea batatas) in Andong, Korea. Root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne incognita was the most prevalent nematode species which is found from 43 yam fields (81.1%) with high population densities (average of 450 juveniles/300 cm3). Other nematodes, root-lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp.) and pin nematode (Paratylenchus spp.) were less problematic. Density of juveniles (J2) of M. incognita was 10 J2/300 cm3 by August, then increased to 274 in September and 624 in October. The highest J2 density was found at the soil depth between 40 and 50 cm (1,840 J2/300 cm3). M. incognita was able to infest yam tuber down to a depth of 70 cm and developed galls outside and brown spots inside. The highest number of females were found at 40–50 cm (79 females/10 cm piece) tuber from the top.
Key Words: Chinese yam, Dioscorea batatas, Meloidogyne incognita, root-knot nematodes, vertical distribution
