A survey was conduced in the three main producing regions of sweet potato in Niger in order to determine the most import plant-parasitic nematodes species that attack the crop. The analysis of soil and roots samples collected from the rhizosphere of sweet potato in three to five sites in each region revealed the presence of only four species of plant-parasitic These are Tylenchorhynchus indicus, Criconemella curvata, Tylenchus sp., and Hirschmanniella oryzae. T. indicus seems to be the most important species because it was both frequent and abundant on sweet potato throughout the three regions.
