Mycorrhiza, aldicarb and cyst nematode control

A study of the effects of mycorrhiza on hatching rate of cyst nematode and chemical control of this pest.

Year of Publication2011

Mycorrhizal treatment of seed potatoes promoted earlier hatching, increased the multiplication rate of cyst nematode in the absence of aldicarb but reduced it in the presence of the nematicide. This resulted in a small but non-significant increase in yield. These results suggest that further experimentation on the use of mycorrhiza may lead to improvements in the integrated control of this pest.
