Heterodera schachtii, also known as the beet cyst nematode or sugarbeet nematode, is a plant pathogenic parasite which can infect more than 200 plants including the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. H. schachtii is an important agricultural pest on sugar beet and brassicaceous crops in its own right and is closely related to the soybean cyst nematode, H. glycines, which is one of the severely economically damaging plant-parasitic nematodes worldwide.
