Managing potato cyst nematode with pesticides
A guide to the factors determining the efficient and cost-effective control of potato cyst nematode with pesticides.
Year of Publication2009
Pesticides applied to reduce cyst nematode damage may increase the yield of potatoes substantially but do not always reduce nematode populations or increase gross margins. Factors affecting population reduction and gross margins include length of rotation, size of population, cost and efficacy of chemical application and market price of potatoes. An understanding of these factors is essential for cost-effective control.
