The species was identified using morphometry and with the help of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) common 18S primer as Meloidogyne enterolobii further confirmed by sequencing the 18s rRNA gene. Meloidogyne enterolobii found infecting root-knot nematode resistant sweetpotato in South Carolina, United States. Guava root-knot nematode is very similar to our common root-knot nematode in the type of damage it causes and its host range and morphology. Steps have been taken to eradicate this nematode in the one field where it was detected, and it is not clear at this time if this nematode is actually established in our state. ----- confirmed host. In these areas, young guava trees are exhibiting symptoms of yellowing, shredding of leaves, drying of branches, reduced vigour, less productivity etc. infect a large number of crops including guava.

Guava orchards of district Ratlam were facing symptoms of sudden decline and loss in productivity due to heavy infestation of highly pathogenic species of root knot nematode, Meloidogyne enterolobii, not only by itself but also causing havoc through predisposing the host for secondary attack by wilt fungus Fusarium oxysporun f.sp. The guava crop has been severely attacked by the plant parasitic nematode Meloidogyne enterolobii which has caused drastic reduction of productivity and, in some cases, even total loss of cultivated areas. Meloidogyne enterolobii is a nematode that continues to severely damage all the guava production chain in the São Francisco river Valley, infesting an area of about 5000 ha. Guava root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) is an invasive pest that has received increased attention and concern in recent years.
