Extraction of Heterodera cajani cysts using modified sieving technique uri icon


  • A soil suspension was sieved through 60, 80 and 100 mesh sieves to remove H. cajani cysts. Approximately 10-22% of the cysts passed through the 60 mesh but were recovered on the 80 mesh. It is therefore suggested that this mesh should be used instead of a 60 mesh for estimating the cyst number of H. cajani
