Root-knot nematodes can especially cause damage to potato, corn, carrots and salsify. But also to flowers like dahlias and gladioli. The best known root-knot nematodes in the Netherlands are Meloidogyne chitwoodi and Meloidogyne hapla. In southern Europe, it is mainly Meloidogyne incognita and Meloidogyne javanica which cause damage.
