Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows:

During the 1940s a U.S. Department of Agriculture selection program for rootstocks of pistachio (Pistacia spp.) included those with resistance to the root knot nematodes Meloidogyne spp. From the early 1960s until 1975, pistachio acreage in California increased from less than 650 to more than 32,000 acres.
