In cooperation with our partner Normec Robalab we started a project on soil analysis, specifically aimed at detection, counting, and classification of nematodes (aaltjes in Dutch), with a first phase in the framework of the ACTPHAST EU programme.

Some species of free-living nematodes can cause great damage to various crops, like potatoes, carrots and asparagus. To prevent damage, it is important to have the plots sampled for these nematode species.

The soil analysis will be based on novel high resolution microscopy, in combination with image/video analysis, aimed at supporting the Robalab analysts.

The left image was captured using a Keyence microscope system, after soil sampling (right).
