ROOT galling caused by root knot eelworm attack is very common in the lighter sandy soils of Western Australia.
This parasitic worm causes severe unthriftiness which may even result in the death of the plant, particularly during the summer months when the disease is most damaging.
Root knot eelworm has a wide host range.
