The Recovery of Infective Nematode Larvae from Herbage Samples

  • M.B. Lancaster (a1)


A rapid technique for the assessment of a larval population on herbage is presented. Factors influencing the reliability of this technique and the problems encountered whilst trying to estimate efficiency of recovery rate are discussed.
