Abstract

A survey was conducted to determine the types, frequency of occurrence and population of plant parasitic nematodes associated with the soils of yam (Dioscorea spp.) in twelve Local Government Areas of Kogi State namely Kabba/Bunu, Ijumu, Yagba/East, Ankpa, Dekina, Bassa, Ogori/Mangogo, Ajaokuta, Okehi, Olamaboro, Ofu and Idah using random sampling for soil, using pie pan and modification of Baerman funnel method for plant parasitic nematodes extraction. Nematodes were assessed from surrounding soil for five yam cultivars belonging to; Dioscorea rotundata, D. Alata and D. Cayenensis at survey. Plant parasitic nematodes recovered included Meloidogyne spp; Pratylenchus spp; Helicotylenchus spp, Hoplotylus spp., and Gracilacus spp which were most widely distributed with population rating of 10,15,20,25, 30,35,40 and50 respectively in soil samples from the twelve Local Government Areas of Kogi State. Hoplotylus spp. and Gracilacus spp recovered from soil sample are not most widely distributed in all the Local Government Areas except in Kabba/Bunu and Yagba/East L.G.As of Kogi State.
