Fenamiphos is a broad spectrum, non-volatile, systemic, organophosphorus nematicide extensively used throughout the world to control plant-parasitic nematodes. The efficacy of this nematicide can decrease in soils where microorganisms accumulate that are capable of rapidly degrading the active ingredient. Among the documented microorganisms to degrade organophosphate compounds, Pseudomonas spp. was frequently identified. However, it still not clear whether or not this bacterial genus is the… CONTINUE READING
