Presence of Meloidogyne enterolobii on Jalapeño pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) in Sinaloa, Mexico

) has become more important worldwide for its high aggressiveness, increasing geographical distribution and wide host range ( Castagnone-Sereno, 2012 ). Aggressiveness is the ability of the nematode to invade and reproduce in a suitable host ( Shaner etal ., 1992 ) The host range of M. enterolobii includes several species of crop plants of great economic importance as pepper, tomato, soybean, guava, coffee, beans, watermelon and potato among others ( Moens et al ., 2009 ). This species has the ability to successfully establish themselves in genotypes of plants
