NEMATICIDAL ACTIVITY OF PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS AGAINST MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA
AbstractOf 55 phenolic compounds tested, eleven exhibited high activity against juveniles of Meloidogyne incognita. The presence of a quinone group, whether ortho or para, was associated with high nematicidal activity. Meta-hydroxy as well as coumarin groups also induced high activity against the root-knot juveniles. Maximum activity was recorded with coumestrol and juglone.
