A pine wood nematode, a filamentous organism (nematode), is the cause of the damages. A pine tree infected with a pine wood nematode suffers from a disease called pine wilt disease, and will die within a few months due to the pine wood nematode growing rapidly in the tree.
Tomato, which is an indispensable part of people’s diet, ranks among the top crops and is cultivated by many farmers. The higher the number of cultivated tomatoes, the higher the risk of plant disease.
Because tomatoes have many diseases and each disease requires different countermeasures to cure, identifying the cause of the disease is an effective way to prevent the spread of infection.
Do you know a plant virus called plum pox virus? This virus, which causes enormous damage to fruit trees of the genus Prunus, has been spreading worldwide, and in 2009, infection was finally confirmed in Japan. Damage caused by plum pox virus has occurred in various places, and plum trees are being cut down at places famous for plum blossoms.
There are many carrot diseases in the world but some do not exist in Japan. For example, Ca. L. solanacearum is a phytopathogenic bacterium that is borne by the insects of Triozidae Trioza sp., but in recent years it has become clear that infection spread by seed transmission of carrot.
Among the diseases that infect fig, there is a disease called fig mosaic disease (FMD). The disease is caused by fig mosaic virus, its infection can cause mosaic symptoms, malformations, chlorosis, vein clearing, and early defoliation, resulting in malformed and mottled fruits.
Transportation of testing reagents requires strict temperature control. Liquid reagents require dry ice for long-distance transportation, but our dry reagent eliminates the need for temperature control, overcomes the long-distance shipping and storage constraints, and provide life science reagents available in all regions.
Improving the fertility of soil is essential for growing crops. Soil testing is an important method to know the fertility condition of the soil. Speaking of soil testing, many people think of chemical analyses such as acidity (pH), electrical conductivity (EC), phosphoric acid and nitrogen determination, but in addition to these tests, physical and biological analysis can be also performed and considered very effective.
Nippon Gene offers a lineup of primer sets and amplification reagents used in various tests.In addition, basic reagents for LAMP are available from us so that researchers can evaluate their own-designed LAMP primers.We also offer our proprietary amplification reagents for the LAMP method using fluorescent probes and fluorescent intercalators.
Economic damage to agriculture and forestry by pest animals is a major social problem. In Japan, the magnitude of pest animal damage is 15.8 billion yen according to the statistics of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan in 2018, and more than half of 54% has been reported as deer damage.
Nippon Gene Material, a subsidiary of Nippon Gene, provides plant disease testing services.
If you are worried about testing with a kit yourself, or if you are busy and do not have time to do the testing, we can do your job with our testing service!
You send us a sample to test, and we will come back to you by email with the test results.
