Soil amendment with castor bean oilcake and jack bean seed powder to control Meloidogyne javanica on tomato roots.
TLDR
Control was achieved through the soil amendment with sugarcane bagasse or coffee husks, but with castor bean oilcake thenumber of eggs / plant was reduced by 18 and 48 % at the application rate of 0.5 and 1.0 %, respectively. Expand
Variability of Meloidogyne exigua on Coffee in the Zona da Mata of Minas Gerais State, Brazil.
TLDR
Reproduction was greater on tomato and pepper than on coffee seedlings, the susceptible standard, and no intraspecies variability was found in any population. Expand
Nematode Root Herbivory in Tomato Increases Leaf Defenses and Reduces Leaf Miner Oviposition and Performance
TLDR
It is revealed that root attack by nematodes can shape leaf physiology, and thereby increases plant resistance, and is accompanied by a strong suppression of leaf volatile emissions, a decrease in photosynthetic rates, and an increase in the activity of leaf trypsin protease inhibitors. Expand
Ultrastructure, Morphology, and Sporogenesis of Pasteuria penetrans.
TLDR
Sporogenesis of P. penetrans was similar to that of other gram-positive bacteria and generally matched the seven-stage scheme reported for Bacillus thuringiensis. Expand
Temperature Effects on the Attachment of Pasteuria penetrans Endospores to Meloidogyne arenaria Race 1.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of temperature on the attachment of P. penetrans endospores on Meloidogyne arenaria race 1 found reductions of endospore attachment to nematodes as temperatures of incubation increased to 50 degrees C and higher. Expand
NEMATODE COMMUNITIES AS BIOLOGICAL INDICATORS OF DISTURBANCE IN AGRICULTURAL SYSTEMS
TLDR
Evaluating nematodes as bio-indicators of disturbance during the establishment of a crop-livestock-forest integrated system (iCLF) showed that the LF and iCLF systems generated less disturbance to the environment whereas the C system caused major disturbances. Expand
Cover crops and Pochonia chlamydosporia for the control of Meloidogyne javanica
TLDR
Pochonia chlamydosporia may favour the establishment of the fungus in the soil and enhance the control of the nematode in summer and winter cover plants under glasshouse conditions. Expand
Ditylenchus drepanocercus (Nematoda), a potential biological control agent for Miconia calvescens (Melastomataceae): host-specificity and epidemiology
TLDR
Observations, together with the probable adaptation of the nematode to habitats in Hawaii and French Polynesia, suggest that this pathogen deserves further study as a classical biocontrol agent for M. calvescens. Expand
