Abstract/Contents:"Nematodes are unsegmented roundworms that are ubiquitous in Arkansas soils. Many nematodes are pathogenic and feed on turfgrasses. Golf course putting greens are optimal environments for plant-parasitic nematodes (PPN) as they usually have a porous root media that allows for the free movement of nematodes. Plant-parasitic nematode populations have not been characterized in Arkansas golf course putting green soils. Therefore, a statewide survey was conducted to determine which PPN species are present in Arkansas putting green soils. To date, 17 golf courses across the state have been sampled at a 13-cm depth for nematode counts. For each course, nine separate putting greens were sampled with ~15 sub-samples taken per putting green in a randomized pattern and homogenized for one representative composite sample per putting green. Samples were sent to the Nematode Diagnostic Laboratory in Hope, AR, where nematodes were extracted using elutriation and then counted. Spiral (Helicotylenchus spp.), lance (Hopolaiumus galeatus), and stunt (Tylenchorhynchus spp.) were the most common nematodes found across all golf courses sampled. Lance, sheathoid (Hemicriconemoides spp.), spiral, stubby-root (Trichodorus obtusus), and stunt nematode were found in statistically higher amounts in creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) than in ultradwarf bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. x C. transvaalensis Burtt-Davy). Sting nematode (Belonolaimus longicaudatus), one of the most damaging turfgrass nematodes, was not found in any of the samples. This survey is ongoing, and more golf courses across the state of Arkansas will be sampled in 2024."
