Differential response of plant parasitic nematodes to nematicidal chemicals
AbstractObservations from a number of field experiments indicate that soil inhabiting nematodes may differ in their susceptibility to different non-fumigant nematicides. Differences in the level of kill achieved in the field can sometimes be attributed to differences in methods of application or environmental conditions during and following treatment. However, the extent of differences in susceptibility to nematicides in the control of nematodes is uncertain. This work attempts to determine whether different nematode species respond differentially to certain nematicidal chemicals.
