Nematodes may be protected by microbes attached to their surface

Nematodes and microbes co-exist in different environments, but they just might do more than that., In humans and insects, nematodes use the host and endosymbiotic microbes to assist them with parasitism. So, does the same thing happen to plant parasitic nematodes in the soil and within the roots of the plants they attack?

Legume-based cover crops can self-regulate to reduce nitrogen loss

Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have investigated the ability of legume-based cover crop mixtures to reduce nitrate leaching losses from agriculture and found them to be self-regulating in terms of nitrogen input via biological N2 fixation and effects on nitrate leaching.
