Morpho-Genetic Characterization of Plant Parasitic Nematode Fauna from Temperate Divisions of KPK, G Plant parasitic nematodes (PPN) are important plant pathogens of wild and cultivated plants are responsible for $85 billion yield losses in value and 15% of total yield worldwide. Pathogens belong to Phylum Nematoda/Nemata has with more than 4100 described PPNs species distributed worldwide. Root-knot, cyst, reniform and lesion nematodes are of quarantine importance in current trade of agricultural commodities and others are also hidden enemies to farming community. In this project we explore Az PARC Islamabad Pakistan Rs. 5.438 Millions
