This section contains information on how to interpret the results of nematode sampling and nematode identification.

After one receives sample results from a nematode analysis laboratory, the results must be interpreted properly before a management decision can be made. Almost all laboratories have developed their own forms to report results of nematode tests but they all contain essentially the same information. Several factors need to be considered when interpreting the information on these forms. Select an item from the contents menu for more information.
