Efficacy of Abamectin for the control of root knot nematodes in tobacco seedling production in Zimbabwe
Based on the results, abamectin can be a suitable replacement for methyl bromide for root knot nematode management in the tobacco seedbed.
ASSESSMENT OF DAMAGE DUE TO ELDANA SACCHARINA WALKER (LEPIDOPTERA: PYRALIDAE) IN SUGARCANE
Variation in damage among sugarcane varieties and investigating morphological and biochemical traits associated with damage at the Zimbabwe Sugar Association Experiment Station found only cane juice purity was found to have a significant negative association with all damage parameters.
Biological control of the rootknot nematode, Meloidogyne javanica (Chitwood) using Bacillus isolates, on soybean
Current banana smallholder farmers farming practices and knowledge on plant-parasitic nematodes associated with banana (Musa spp.) in Rusitu Valley, Zimbabwe
A survey of farmers in the Rusitu Valley, Zimbabwe, found that most farmers had little or no knowledge of plant-parasitic nematodes that damage bananas and sound extension programme inRusitu Valley should educate farmers on the importance of managing plant-Parasitic Nematodes and using better banana crop production practices.
The use of edaphic factors to map the spatial distribution of root knot nematodes in tobacco plantations
It was noted that soils close by usually have little variation in texture and hence geo-mapping of nematodes is not feasible in small fields and hence electrical conductivity cannot be reliably used.
Screening indigenous nematicidal plants in Zimbabwe against Meloidogyne javanica: paper presented at a conference held on the 14th-16th July 2015, Elephant Hills Resort, Victoria Fallls, Zimbabwe
The theme of this year's conference is “Driving Socio-Economic Development Through Value Addition and Sustainable Use of Resources: Towards a Post-Information Age”.

Nematode management strategies involving fenamiphos 40EC or lime could significantly reduce maize yield losses in maize-based smallholder farming systems of SSA under CA.
Use of trichoderma and bacillus isolates as seed treatments against the rootknot nematode, meloidogyne javanica (chitwood)
- C. Chinheya
In this study, the biocontrol potential of Bacillus isolates was investigated in laboratory and greenhouse experiments and blast analysis revealed that the two select isolates, BC27 and BC29,hadsimilar sequences to Bacillus spp.
Evaluation of an improved Katambora grass cultivar G HR1 for root-knot nematode management in tobacco
Increased environmental, human and animal health concern with nematicides use in controlling root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne spp.) in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) has fostered the need to find…
Evaluation of legume intercrops on the population dynamics and damage level of burrowing nematode (Radopholus similis) in banana (Musa spp.)
Sunn hemp and cowpea legumes are recommended for adoption by smallholder banana farmers as alternatives to nematicide use and were suppressing R. similis population densities and reduced banana root damage the most compared to tested treatments.
