PULLMAN, Wash. – A close relative of the cereal cyst nematode was discovered in Washington for the first time this summer. Scientists don’t believe quarantines will be required but are assessing the significance of the discovery.
“We’ve been dealing with a similar nematode for several years,” said Timothy Murray, a plant pathologist at Washington State University. “This new species will have a comparable impact to the existing one and we’ll use the same treatments for its control.”
