Figures and Tables from this paper

Integrated management of root-knot nematode ( Meloidogyne incognita ) for tomato production and productivity
Higher concentration of rapeseed cake (20%) proved most effective in reducing hatching and affecting motility of root-knot nematode and the effects of higher dosages BioNem and rapeseed Cake were at par with the chemical treated control. Expand


Population Densities of Meloidogyne incognita and Other Nematodes Following Seven Cultivars of Cowpea
In two field experiments on sandy soils in Florida, densities of Meloidogyne incognita race 1 were lowest following the cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) cultivars Tennessee Brown, Mississippi Silver, and California Blackeye #5, and population densities following the cultivar Purple Knuckle were intermediate. Expand
Cultural Practices Improve Crop Tolerance to Nematodes
The effects of organic amendments and crop establishment on nematode densities and yields of susceptible vegetable crops were determined in sites infested with Meloidogyne incognita race 1,Expand
Effect of Tropical Rotation Crops on Meloidogyne incognita and Other Plant-Parasitic Nematodes.
In a field experiment conducted on sandy soil in Florida during the 1993 season, rotation crops of castor, velvetbean, 'Mississippi Silver' cowpea, 'Vigna unguiculata', American jointvetch, 'Dehapine 51' cotton, and 'SX-17' sorghum-sudangrass were effective in maintaining low population densities of Meloidogyne incognita race 1. Expand
Effect of urban plant debris and soil management practices on plant parasitic nematodes, Phytophthora blight and Pythium root rot of bell pepper
It is demonstrated that several nonchemical management practices can reduce the impact of soilborne pests for fresh market bell pepper production in a humid, subtropical climate. Expand
Effect of compost and manure soil amendments on nematodes and on yields of potato and barley: a 7-year study.
The results indicated that organic amendments increased crop yields, but the impacts on different nematode species varied and usually increased soil population levels. Expand
Nematode community changes associated with decomposition of Crotalaria juncea amendment in litterbags
Insight is provided into efficient use of an organic residue to optimize succession of nematodes involved in decomposition, and to provide a way to maintain enrichment of the soil food web. Expand
Interactions of Bacteria, Fungi, and their Nematode Grazers: Effects on Nutrient Cycling and Plant Growth
The results support claims in the literature that microbial grazers may perform important regulatory functions at critical times in the growth of plants and support a conceptual model proposed in which microfloral grazers were considered as separate state variables. Expand
Effect of crop rotation and tillage on nematode densities in tropical corn.
In general, tillage had little effect on densities of most nematodes examined, and rotation appears to be more important than tillage for managing plant-parasitic nematode densities under these conditions. Expand
Suppression of Meloidogyne incognita and M. javanica by Pasteuria penetrans in Field Soil.
The role of Pasteuria penetrans in suppressing numbers of root-knot nematodes was investigated in a 7-year monocuhure of tobacco in a field naturally infested with a mixed population of Meloidogyne incognita race 1 and M. javanica and the reduction in root galling, as well as numbers of egg masses and eggs appeared to have resulted from infection of both nematode species by P. penetrans. Expand
Host Suitability of Potential Cover Crops for Root-knot Nematodes.
Several potential cover crops were evaluated for their susceptibility to Meloidogyne arenaria, and several of the crops evaluated were very poor hosts or non-hosts of the nematode isolates, including several legumes that have potential use in both nematodes and nitrogen management. Expand
