A severe nematode disease of peanut (Arachis hypogaea) was first observed in 1976 in the Kalahasti area of Andhra Pradesh State, India. The disease was characterized by small, brownish yellow lesions on the pegs and pod stalks and on young, developing pods. The margins of the lesions were slightly elevated. Pod stalks were greatly reduced in length, and in advanced stages of the disease, the pod surface became completely discolored. The nematode Tylenchorhynchus brevilineatus was shown to be the causal agent. Soil treatment with carbofuran or aldicarb was effective in reducing the populations of T. brevilineatus and controlling the disease.
